Manage mycotoxin risk of raw materials, improve predictability of results

To ensure the safety of the raw feed materials, it’s crucial to know whether they contain any mycotoxins – and if so which, and in what quantities. But analysing materials for the presence of mycotoxins and assessing the potential risk involved is complicated. Managing imprecise information can lead to under- or overtreatment, resulting in unnecessarily high costs or bad feed quality, affecting animal performance.

To resolve this problem, the NutriOpt Mycotoxin Adviser has been developed. This provides a real-time mycotoxin risk assessment, plus recommendations for final feeds to reduce animal health risks and improve the predictability of results.

From analysis to recommendations

The Mycotoxin Risk Management procedure consists of three steps.

1.         The materials are analysed using the easy-to-use Mycomaster.
            This can detect the six most commonly encountered mycotoxins.

2.         The NutriOpt Mycotoxin Adviser, analyses the results by using
            an extensive (and ever-growing) database.

3.         If the result shows that the formulated feed contains unacceptably high levels of mycotoxins,
            the Adviser makes recommendations for improving the feed formulation
            or quality control programme.
