Join our webinar on Thursday, October 27, on mycotoxin risk management
One of the challenges in mycotoxin management is that the importance of the different mycotoxins changes over time. The relevance of some of the well-known mycotoxins is going down, whereas new mycotoxins emerge. During the webinar, “Multi-pronged Approach to Mycotoxin Risk Management in Dairy Cows”, Professor Antonio Gallo, Associate Professor in Animal Nutrition, Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore, Italy , will present his views on the impact of Fusarium produced mycotoxins on the performance of dairy cows. He will also elaborate on recent research performed at the University on strategies to mitigate the effects of Fusarium and other mycotoxins.
The problems caused by the different mycotoxins can vary enormously between various mycotoxins. Secondly, moulds can be present without producing significant amounts of mycotoxins. Dr. Swamy Haladi, Programme Manager Mycotoxin Risk Management will provide practical information on how to work out which mycotoxins are present and to what extend they are likely to cause problems. Next to that, mitigation strategies will be discussed. He will focus on what should be taken into account to identify if mycotoxins are impacting milk quality and/or dairy cow performance.
