Mycotoxin Blue Book

Mycotoxin Blue Book

Edited by E D Diaz

Once thought to be only a problem in tropical regions, moulds and the mycotoxins they produce have wide-ranging economic impact on animal agriculture on every continent of the globe. Mould growth robs feed nutritive value and reduces intake, which lowers efficiency. Mycotoxins, even when present at levels previously considered 'trace', have negative effects on performance and health, particularly in the context of today's more highly productive modern livestock genetics.
