WE DEVELOP AND PRODUCE FEED ADDITIVES & INGREDIENTS THAT PROTECT ANIMAL HEALTH AND ENHANCE PRODUCTIVITY
Our goal is to deliver cost efficient solutions while respecting animal welfare and sustainability.
Impextraco ensures you get feed additives and ingredients that enable you to meet today's demands for healthy and safe food products.
On April 15th Astrid Koppenol representing Impextraco, participated in the All About Feed webinar on Mycotoxins.
Climate change and extreme weather events are factors that influence mycotoxin prevalence around the globe for the 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.
Attend and watch our webinar on “Mycotoxins” on April 15 on the All About feed website
I am a dairy producer in the Americas, with about 2000 cows. My feed company had decided to buy corn of a new supplier and it contained severe toxin loads.
My cows were on 6 g/head/day Elitox® at the time. But they started to show T-2 type signs with bloody diarrhea throughout the herd and several cows died after being removed from the herd to the sick group.
I am an owner of 100 miniature horses in Australia. For the last few summers we have experienced a select few horses that exhibit stagger like symptoms. With a dominance of Perennial Ryegrass in our pasture and a history within the area, these horses were diagnosed with Perennial Ryegrass Toxicosis (PRGT), otherwise known as Ryegrass Staggers.
I am a pig farmer in Queensland and I use Elitox® routinely in sow and weaning diets to help manage the challenges that mycotoxins can cause.
It is also used on an “as needs” basis in further rations if raw materials are deemed to present a higher risk. Use in sows is to optimize both fertility of sows and liveability of young pigs. We have been previously contended with lesions and discoloration of ears, feet and tails in weaning pigs. We attributed this to mycotoxins.
