The conference focuses on the need for real-time information and suggestion for mycotoxin management.

The negative impact of moulds and mycotoxins on animal production is an ever-increasing concern. The challenges in mycotoxin and toxigenic mould research are still enormous due to the frequency, the complexity and variability in occurrence, according to the industry experts.

“As one of the industry leaders in providing practical solutions for mycotoxin risk control, Nutriad’s team of nutritionists, biochemists and veterinarians combines a hand on approach with in depth research. Many research projects are conducted in close cooperation with leading universities around the world,” said Nutriad.

Olga Averkieva, business development manager in Nutriad, presented Nutriad’s result, which was obtained by researchers from the University of Missouri, on the effect of TOXY-NIL and UNIKE Plus on the reduction of aflatoxin M1 (AFM1) levels in milk of lactating dairy cows fed aflatoxin B1 (AFB1).

Averkieva stated, “Results indicate that inclusion of TOXY-NIL and UNIKE Plus significantly reduced AFM1 in milk of cows consuming TMR. Another outcome was a clear indication that both TOXY-NIL and UNIKE Plus reduced absorption of AFB1.”

Nutriad delivers products and services to more than 80 countries through a network of sales offices and distributors, which are supported by four application laboratories and five manufacturing facilities on three continents.
