Alltech Mycosorb

Alltech Mycosorb

Is a patented yeast cell wall extract for inclusion in the daily feed. It is rich in glucens that are known to bind mycotoxins, they have a vast surface area, so not much is needed. The product is heat stable and natural and has a broad spectrum action over a range of mycotoxins.

Where mycotoxins have been identified, feeding Mycosorb Farm Pack showed an average response of 1.2 litres per day.

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

Variable intakes Inconsistant milk yields
Scouring Acidosis-type symptoms
Impaired immune function Poor rumen function
Bloody faeces Lethargy
Reduced fertility Swollen ankles / teat swelling
Muscles tremors Unsettled cows
General poor performance without any clear explanation  

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:

Plant stress

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.


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.

Feeding rates are estimates, and other factors, such as animal health and environment, can have a greater impact on how animals perform. There is no guarantee that animals will perform as expected if fed the suggested rates. Rations should be balanced to provide enough energy and protein for animals, and they should include enough forage to keep the rumen healthy. Animals also need access to fresh water at all times.
