Mycotoxin Lesions in the slaughterhouse-pigs

Mycotoxin Lesions in the slaughterhouse-pigs

Pigs will ingest sublethal amounts of the toxin for a prolonged period of time, affecting their health status. The manifestation is a growth reduction and poor performance. The analysis of mycotoxins in feed previously consumed by the animals is normally the method used to establish a relationship between the lesions observed in the slaughterhouses and mycotoxins.

How to take samples

¿Why is it sometimes difficult to identify mycotoxins in grains and food?
It is common to talk with nutritionists, agronomists and veterinarians who mention the difficulty of demonstrating significant levels of mycotoxins in the ration of animals that show typical mycotoxicosis lesions.

Anti-Mycotoxin Additive of Proven Efficacy

Anti-Mycotoxin Additive of Proven Efficacy

There is a general understanding that ruminants are less susceptible to mycotoxins’ detrimental effects due to the metabolizing action of the rumen microflora. However, metabolites produced in the rumen can be equally or even more toxic than the original toxin.

Naturally innocuous

Naturally innocuous

Around the world, anti-mycotoxins additives have been used for decades to prevent the deleterious effects
caused by them. Historically, one main concern is the possibility of these products negatively affecting the
absorption of essential nutrients, such as minerals and vitamins from the gastrointestinal tract.

Endotoxins

Endotoxins

What are endotoxins?
Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria are differentiated, among other things, by their type of cell envelope. Gram-negative bacteria are encircled by a thin peptidoglycan cell wall, that is also enclosed by an outer membrane containing lipopolysaccharides (LPS), one of the main components of the endotoxins responsible for the damage…

Necropsias

Necropsias

La realización de la necropsia es indispensable para la elaboración de un diagnóstico. Es importante contar en las granjas con el equipo mínimo necesario para su realización. Cada profesionista adopta una técnica de necropsia e incluso la modifica a su gusto y comodidad, por lo que esta es solo una guía para la realización sistemática de la misma.

Mycotoxin lesions in the slaughterhouse-broilers

Mycotoxin lesions in the slaughterhouse-broilers

Traditionally, the presence of mycotoxins capable of causing damage in animal production has been demonstrated by detecting certain levels in ingredients and / or rations. Since this technique has many limitations, histopathology has been used…

Efficacy of Mycoad against aflatoxin in layers

Efficacy of Mycoad against aflatoxin in layers

Caged ISA Brown layers already in production were transferred from a commercial farm to an experimental unit at Samitec in Santa María, RS, Brazil. A seven-day adaptation period to the new facilities was allowed before starting the trial at 40 weeks of age.

Mycoad Duck

Mycoad Duck

Ducks are considered one of the most susceptible avian species to aflatoxin (AFLA) toxicity. Scientific reports describe several clinical signs and lesions, as well as diminished performance after ingestion of contaminated rations for different periods of time.

Mycoad AZ

Mycoad AZ

Zearalenone (ZEA), fumonisin (FUM), aflatoxin, ochratoxin, deoxynivalenol (DON / vomitoxin), and other tricothecenes are very important mycotoxins affecting pig performance…
