‘Must-Read Book’ on Mycotoxins to be Unveiled at EuroTier

Kemin provides compelling and valuable compilation relevant to all animal species, International desk:–Kemin is rolling out its fourth in a series of books on key nutrition and hot-topic health issues at EuroTier in Hannover, Germany November 15. Written by leading industry and academic experts, Mycotoxins in Animal Feeds – Facts and Solutions, provides a state-of-the-art assessment on the occurrence and impact of mycotoxins in animal nutrition and options for managing.

“This is a must-read book for anyone who wishes to understand the impact of mycotoxin challenges and potential approaches for more profitable animal protein production,” said K.P. Philip, president of the animal nutrition and health division of Kemin. “We brought together a cross-section of outstanding members of academia and specialists active in the animal nutrition and mycotoxin domain fields for both depth and breadth of information, as well as insights on how to effectively control mycotoxicosis under different challenging conditions.”

More than 1,000+ mycotoxins have been discovered and the risk of mycotoxins entering the feed chain is almost unavoidable and worthy of the industry’s attention.

“The timing of this compilation of papers couldn’t be better,” said Nicola Tallarico, product manager responsible for the mycotoxin control programme at Kemin. “There is growing awareness and debate around the topic and we believe sharing scientific findings and analysis is a critical step in the process of working together to manage mycotoxin risks in animals.”   

It’s been Kemin’s experience that the most cost-effective way of managing the negative effect of mycotoxins on animal performance is to intervene during the production of feed. This can be managed using specific feed ingredients capable of neutralizing or counteracting the negative effects of mycotoxins after their ingestion by the animals.

To learn more about this approach, as well as the book, Mycotoxins in Animal Feeds – Facts and Solutions, for all animal species and feed producers across the region of Europe, the Middle East and North Africa (EMENA), stop by for the official book launch on Tuesday, November 15 at 11:30 at booth #20 L22.
