Mycotoxins present an ever-increasing challenge to global agriculture. Contamination of feedstuffs by these naturally produced compounds impacts crop and feed quality, animal health, farm productivity and overall business profitability. Different management methods can be employed to counteract the mycotoxin effects on animal production. One proven method is the use of in-feed nutritional solutions, such as yeast cell wall extract (YCWE), that are designed to bind or adsorb mycotoxins and remove them from the animal’s digestive tract before they have a chance to cause serious harm.

All About Feed: Toxic and unstable? Choose your selenium choice carefully

Submitted by jnorrie on Wed, 07/20/2022 - 13:59

Selenium supplements are available in several forms; inorganic mineral salts, such as sodium selenite or selenate; organic forms, such as selenium-enriched yeast in which selenoamino acid analogues such as selenomethionine predominate; or chemically synthesised selenoamino acids and selenoamino acid analogues produced by synthetic routes. The distribution and accumulation of selenium and selenium form in animal tissues depends greatly on the type of selenium supplement, and the form in which selenium is presented will play a crucial role in its bioavailability and efficacy.
