Zearalenone (ZEA) is a naturally occurring mycotoxin produced by Fusarium species, mainly Fusarium graminearum, on a variety of different grains, such as com, wheat, rice, sorghum, barley and rye. The Fusarium graminearum also survives in crop residues…
It is important to consider the post-mortem changes present in the corpse. The main ones are tympanization, rigor mortis, desquamation of epithelia and imbibition by hemoglobin and bile.
Rigor mortis: Consist on the hardening and a certain contrac-tion of the stríated and smooth musculatura.
Necropsy is essential for making a diagnosis. It is important to have on the farms the minimum equipment necessary to carry them out. Each professional adopts a necropsy technique and even modifies it to their liking and comfort, so this is only a guide for the systematic performance of it.
The main problem with mycotoxicosis in pigs is that in most cases this intoxication occurs gradually. Pigs will ingest sublethal amounts of the toxin for a prolonged period of time, affecting their health status.
For prevention / control MYCOAD AZ every shipment with and adsorption certifícate by an independent laboratory against:
3000 PPB ZEARALENONE @ 1.0 KG / MT
3000 PPB FUMONISIN @ 1.0 KG / MT
3000 PPB OCHRATOXIN @ 1.0 KG / MT
Few products have scientific trials showing a positive effect on target organs to support their claims. The following table shows a list of the scientific trials performed with MYCOAiD and MYCOAD AZ by independent Universities and Research Centers…
Eighteen 20-day old recently weaned Yorkshire Cross gilts individually housed were randomly distributed into three dietary treatments with 6 replications each in an experimental farm at Trilogy Labs in Missouri, USA.
Ducks are considered one of the most susceptible avian species to aflatoxins (AFLA). The toxic effects of AFLA include mortality, loss of appetite, retarded growth, web-toe hemorrhages, and ataxia.
Fungal contamination of agricultural products is often unavoidable and of growing concern because frequently these products have toxic metabolites known as mycotoxins. Mycotoxins contamination can occur in the crops…
• Vaccination failures
• Excesive use of antibiotics
• Meat yield reduction
• Increased condemnations
• Increase in bruisings
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.

Recent reports have shown an increase in the presence of multiple mycotoxins at relative high levels in feedstuffs worldwide. Toxicity of some mycotoxins may increase in a synergistic or additive fashion when they are combined in the diet.
