Mycotoxins are naturally occurring toxic metabolites produced by fungi (moulds) in the field or during storage. Once the contaminated material is ingested by the animal, these metabolites cause mycotoxicosis. The toxicity of mycotoxins depends on the amounts ingested, duration of exposure, type of animal, their breed, age, sex, health status, but also on other parameters such as density of animals, diseases, temperature, etc… Diagnosis of mycotoxicosis is difficult as symptoms are usually non-specific.

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.
