Cool, wet growing seasons may delay grain maturity, and can result in mold and mycotoxin formation in the field. Producers are faced with the decision to feed moldy feeds or forages and knowing there may be a potential risk to animal productivity. Molds (mycotoxins) are more pronounced when the dry matter content of the grain or roughage is in excess of 14%. Hay that has been rained on exhibits an increase in fiber content and a corresponding reduction in intake. It can take much more rained on hay to meet the animals requirements compared to hay that has not been rained on.
What are the Effects of Specific Mycotoxins on Cattle?
Aflatoxin - High levels of aflatoxins are associated with above-average temperature and below-average rainfall.Aflatoxins have tremendous antibiotic activity and disrupt normal rumen function. Symptoms include anorexia, poor growth and anemia. Do not exceed levels of 100 ppb in pregnant cow diets or 300 ppb in finishing cattle diets.
Vomitoxin -Vomitoxin is a protein synthesis inhibitor, affecting the digestive tract and immune system. Cattle are quite tolerant to vomitoxin, apparently due to rumen microbial activity. Cattle have consumed up to 10 ppm vomitoxin with no adverse effects. Do not exceed more than 5 ppm in finished feeds.
