ChampionPig© , the world’s first complete program from day 1 to end of nursery focused on economic performance

Full program for farrowing and nursery periods, with measurable impact on the performance of the whole life. Despite having one of the most restrictive legislations in the world on the use of antibiotic growth promoters and on animal welfare, European pig farms are the most productive in the world. Nowadays many farms reach 35 alive […]

Safe levels of mycotoxins in swine feed

Understanding the contamination by mycotoxins is key to prevent their negative effects Mycotoxins are secondary metabolites produced by fungi when they grow on agricultural products before or after harvest, during transportation or storage. Mycotoxins pose a severe threat to humans and as well as causing huge economic losses in the feed and food industries. These […]

Why mycotoxins make you lose the money invested in feed?

Mycotoxins are toxic secondary metabolites produced by molds mainly belonging to the genera Aspergillus, Penicillium and Fusarium. Although the best known consequences of mycotoxins are their clinical (diseases) and subclinical (productivity losses) effects on farm animals, the reduction of the value of crops and complete feeds is a lesser known but very important repercussion. It […]

6 main causes of erosions in gizzard and proventriculus

6 main causes of erosions in gizzard and proventriculus

To read an updated version of this article follow this link. It is estimated that between 15 and 25% of the birds routinely necropsied in broiler, breeder or layer farms suffer from proventriculus or gizzard erosions. The consequences of such erosions should not be underestimated, as proventriculus and gizzard are very important digestive organs. Lesions […]

3 ways binders based on silicates improve productivity of layers and breeders

3 ways binders based on silicates improve productivity of layers and breeders

Binders based on silicates are widely used in poultry farming nowadays. In recent years, silicate-based products have evolved from focusing solely on the binding of aflatoxins to become complex materials with high binding capacities for all mycotoxins. The latest generation of silicates shows binding rates for difficult-to-bind mycotoxins equal or better than products based on […]

Spring is coming in the Northern Hemisphere and soon the weather will be warm and humid. Spring and Summer are the times at which farmers are more concerned by the presence of molds and their best known metabolites: mycotoxins. But, as we shall see later, neither mycotoxin contamination is particularly linked to the warm and […]

Mycotoxin contamination in crops affected by 2012 drought

Mycotoxin contamination in crops affected by 2012 drought

In 2012, the worst drought in more than half a century has affected USA and Mexico, as a result of the La Niña phenomenon and probably also linked to global warming. Other countries have suffered periods of abnormally high temperatures this summer, such as North Korea, UK, South Europe, Germany and some African countries. Such […]
