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.

This video is from the Brazilian Ministry of Agriculture to show how important the Brazilian agriculture is for the world and how they do it with respect to the planet.
The global spread of COVID-19 and the subsequent extreme measures that countries are implementing to slow down the virus have had and are having a serious impact in all of us.
Impextraco has increased its safety protocols as we continue to monitor the situation closely. This has translated into both an international travel ban for our sales force worldwide and the implementation of home-office policy for all employees whose presence at site was not essential for the daily operation.
Having said that and despite these moments of hardship, our production plant and distribution centers continue to operate at full capacity thanks to our factory team. Similarly, our QA/QC teams are guaranteeing the same high quality standards as usual and last, but not least, our diligent customer service team is assuring the delivery of our products under these exceptional circumstances.
Impextraco attended the XXVI Latin American Congress in Lima, Peru 2019.
Last week Impextraco had the focus on China. We took part in the VIV forum about 'Leading a new era in animal nutrition'
We had a session about 'Young animal nutrition is the driving force for healthy growth.' Katrien Deschepper shared our insights on healthy growth of animals via focus on young animal nutrition optimization with our Impextraco solutions, for industrial partners in swine and poultry production.
PhD candidate position in close collaboration with industry (Baekeland mandate) on the development of blood-based biomarkers for the evaluation of intestinal health in broiler chickens.
Intestinal health of poultry has broad implications for the systemic health of birds, animal welfare, animal performances, food safety, and environmental impact. The gastrointestinal tract has digestive, absorptive, metabolic, immunological and endocrinological functions. In poultry production, major problems are of intestinal origin, including gut inflammation, dysbiosis and intestinal pathogens, including Salmonella and Clostridium perfringens. Besides, also mycotoxins and heat stress have been shown to have severe negative impact on intestinal health.
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.
