Webinar: Mycotoxins

15 April 2021

Climate change and extreme weather events are factors that influence mycotoxin prevalence around the globe for he last years. Mycotoxin contamination of grains causes economic losses and has negative consequences for the health of all livestock. Mycotoxin management, therefore, has the utmost priority for animal producers.

This webinar is organized All About Feed. With speakers from Schothorst Feed Research, Impextraco and Agrimprove, the webinar will air at April 15, at 15:00 CET. The toxicology of mycotoxins in farm animals and the different strategies for mycotoxin prevention and elimination will be discussed.
