Dairy producers feeding aflatoxins every day: is this a manageable problem?

 

Radka Borutova, DVM, PhD., business development manager at Nutriad International, Belgium

 

 

Production losses due to mycotoxin contamination are clearly subject to a number of factors and uncertainties. The losses are hugely variable in time and difficult to estimate. However, the effects of the contamination are often significant and can be long-lasting.

The economic impact of mycotoxins is difficult to estimate even after an outbreak of mycotoxicosis. The most important losses are probably those associated with long-term under-performance. Estimates of this can be made on the basis of the information provided earlier. A simple simulation model was developed that allows for the estimation of production and financial losses due to the long-term sub-clinical impact of mycotoxins in dairy cattle.
