Mycotoxin Contamination: Effects on Production

This week  iGrow’s SDSU Extension discusses the issues and solutions associated with mycotoxins during a seminar which is open to the public on November 7, 2012.

The seminar features Lon Witlow, a professor of dairy cattle nutrition in the Animal Science Department at North Carolina State University . Witlow’s seminar will address the problems associated with mycotoxins in feedstuffs and how it effects production and health of dairy cattle. He will also talk about feed additives that are effective in binding mycotoxins and how these additives reduce toxicity and milk residues.

At NCSU, Whitlow conducts research in dairy cattle nutrition and management, including the incidence, effects, control and treatment of mycotoxins. Within his research he has shown that mycotoxins routinely occur in a variety of feedstuffs, including silages.

The seminar is due to commence at 3pm and runs until 5pm on the campus of South Dakota State University in the Alfred Dairy Science Hall, room 100. Witlow, is co-sponsored by SDSU Extension and Prince Agri Products, Inc.
