Where mycotoxins have been identified, feeding Mycosorb Farm Pack showed an average response of 1.2 litres per day.
Alltech Mycosorb Farm Pack is a patented yeast cell wall extract for inclusion in the daily feed.
Are you experiencing problems? It could well be Mycotoxins. Mycotoxins are produced naturally from all types of mould, there are hundreds of different known mycotoxins. Mycotoxins affect animals is a variety of ways and since there are many types, identifying and diagnosing is often very difficult.
Common effects of mycotoxins
Conditions for mycotoxin production
Mould is highly adaptable and will develop on any growing or stored feedstuffs in a wide variety of conditions. Mould produce mycotoxins under a wide range of conditions and therefore, the challenge should be considered ever-present:
Soil infertility, insect damage, extremes of temperature or moisture. Harvest stress - late harvest, crop too dry, slow clamp filling. Storage stress - wet grain, poor clamp consolidation, poor fermentation. Feed-out problems - poor hygiene, spoilage at face, poor face management.
Control or eradication of toxin's is not as easy task, but a product that can help is Mycosorb - a natural feed supplements based on the inner cell walls from specifically selected yeast.
How does it work
When Alltech Mycosorb is fed, mycotoxins present in the gut of the animal are absorbed by the yeast sugars and are excreted with the faeces, thereby maintain the health of the animal. Mycosorb has been extensively trialled and is effective against the vast majority of known problem-causing mycotoxins.
Alltech Mycosorb becomes effective as soon as fed and animal responses are typically seen from 3 days to 3 weeks after inclusion, depending on the type and severity of the mycotoxin challenge.
Alltech Mycosorb can be fed as part of a TMR or direct into the trough. To be fed at 100g per head per day for the first 7 days, then reduce to 50g per head per day thereafter.
There was a letter published in the farming press from a dairy farmer in Wiltshire about his use of MYCOSORB. He was experiencing, within his herd, lameness, sore hocks, reduced yield and scouring. Having called in his vet and various other consultants the conclusion was reached that the possibilities of mycotoxins causing the problems (although no moulds could be seen) was the root of the problem.
Within 4 days of introducing MYCOSORB his yields had increased by 4½ litres and the other associated problems started to go away. Now, a few months later, he says that his herd has never looked better and the problems have disappeared.
