[DUNBOYNE, Ireland] – Mycotoxin contamination in feed continues to be an ever-present risk. According to Alltech’s 2015 European Grains and Forage Harvest Analysis, dairy and beef cattle are at high risk for mycotoxin exposure. Inconsistent weather conditions during the summer of 2015 increased the risk for mycotoxin contamination, leading to irregularities in plant growth and wreaking havoc on the 2015 European crop. Alltech’s European Bioscience Centre in Dunboyne, Co. Meath, Ireland aims to be one step ahead of the mycotoxin challenge.
