Managing mycotoxins in the feed mill
Rapid testing keeps the mill running while effectively managing mycotoxins.
To put it simply, mycotoxins can be found everywhere. Triggered after the right growing conditions for fungi occur, millions, perhaps billions, of spores rapidly multiply to produce toxic mycotoxin byproducts that, when ingested at high enough levels, can be catastrophic to animals and humans.
