Mycotoxin problems in pig feed?
The solution: MycoBond
What are mycotoxins?
Mycotoxins are poisons that are formed during the growth of fungi. These fungi grow on plants under certain environmental conditions (depending on weather, variety, harvest time) in the field (field fungi).
During unfavourable storage conditions, such as excessive humidity or lack of ventilation, dangerous storage fungi may also develop.
Endotoxins are toxic decomposition products of bacteria. Especially in combination with other factors (e.g. poor health status, mycotoxin contamination of feed, stress), these can have a variety of effects, such as necrosis, oedema or poor immunity.
Why are mycotoxins dangerous?
Mycotoxins can poison animals such as pigs and cows. Common symptoms include organ damage (liver and kidney), an affected nervous system, a compromised immune system, but also changes in blood count.
For example, higher amounts of deoxynivalenol can influence feed intake. In contrast, zearalenone has a negative effect on the fertility of female animals due to its hormone-like structure.
The most important mycotoxins for pigs:
- Deoxynivalenol (DON)
- Zearalenone (ZEA)
- T2- and HT2-toxin
The ActivePro solution: MycoBond
With MycoBond, ActivePro has developed a highly effective mycotoxin binder with a broad-spectrum effect for pigs and cattle.
Mycotoxins are rendered harmless by means of various effective active principles, or the metabolism and the immune system are strengthened.
- Mycotoxins and endotoxins are bound by special minerals and eliminated harmlessly
- Bioproteins split mycotoxins into non-toxic degradation products
- Special active ingredients strengthen the immune system and support liver function
Effects on animals:
- Higher performance and lower animal losses
> through better feed intake and higher growth
> through high resistance
- Better operational success
> through more animals sold
> through higher milk yield and better milk quality (cell count)
- Safeguarding fertility through a higher rate of insemination success
|Yeast||Mannans and glucans as essential components of the specially processed yeast bind mycotoxins and harmful germs (e.g. E. Coli) in the stomach and intestinal tract|
|Bentonite||mineral component with toxin-binding function|
|Grape seeds||the antioxidative effect supports metabolism, especially in stressful situations|
|Herbs||natural, tasty herbs to promote feed intake|
|Lots of vitamin E||for a stable immune system|
|Algae calcium||high-quality calcium source due to the polymorphic structure – especially suitable for stressful situations|
