MYCOTOXINS – THE HIDDEN MENACE
Mycotoxins are toxins produced by some species of mold (myco means fungal). These mycotoxins are some of the most toxic substances in existence.
The acute intake of high concentrations of mycotoxins causes profound reductions in animal performance and increased mortality.
Toxins are found in a wide variety of feed (Hay, Haylage, Chaﬀ, Grains), pastures and soils. NZ’s pastures and our climate means we are grass and pasture are subjected to a high risk of exposure to these toxins.
Veterinarian and researchers are increasingly concerned about the eﬀects of chronic low-level ingestion of these toxins given the amount of feed that is potentially contaminated . Low-levels of mycotoxins result in arrange of symptoms of under performance that have no obvious causative agent.
Management to decrease fungal and mould infections (mycotoxin) involves treating grains at source with fungicides, adequate storage, and screening of food/ feed for toxins to assign usages depending on level of toxin. Although eﬀective in reducing high-level ingestion and acute toxicity, low levels of these toxins are in grains, especially those designated for feed.
The Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) estimate that 25% of the World’s grains supplies are contaminated with fungi and mould (hence mycotoxins) at source.
Mould and fungi thrive in warm, moist conditions when there is a food source available. Most, if not all, will produce mycotoxins, especially when stressed.
NZ’s pastures and our climate means we are grass and pasture are subjected to a high risk of exposure to these toxins.
IS YOUR HORSE EFFECTED?
The symptoms associated with mycotoxin poisoning are general and include, but are not limited to;
- Trembling, unsteadiness or poor muscle co-ordination
- Erratic, Anxious, Spooky behavior
- Unexplained changes in feed intake
- Nervousness, eﬀecting the brain
- High incidence of digestive problems including an abnormal amount of mucus in the faeces
- Increased incidence of disease linked to a depressed immune system General ﬂuid retention in tissues (oedema)
- Reduced fertility- including fetal reabsorption and abortions without obvious infectious cause
- A general un-thriftiness and malaise
- Animals unresponsive to treatment for disease
None of the above is conclusive for mycotoxin poisoning, but in the absence of more typical causes, e.g. infection or poor management, then the most likely cause is a low- grade mycotoxicosis.
25% of all grains produced may be aﬀected and that premium grains are reserved for food grade the chances of mycotoxin contamination of feed are signiﬁcantly greater.
THE BEST OPTION IS A MULTI-FACTOR APPROACH INCLUDING;
- Providing the best quality feed available
- Storing feed in optimal conditions to reduce the risk of fungal growth
- Including antifungal agents in the diet formulations
- Maintaining best husbandry practices
- Providing your animals with a diet that reduces the risk of mycotoxin absorption and their metabolic eﬀects
- Binders to reduce the eﬀective concentration of mycotoxins
- Gut conditioners to increase the beneﬁcial bacteria, hence potential to detoxify toxins in the diet
- Providing dietary components that can help protect the animal by maintaining a strong natural defense system
e.g. a good source of β-glucans
