Mitigating the effects of a mycotoxin challenge on dairy performance

Problems with mycotoxins in dairy cows are more common than often thought

The incidence of problems with mycotoxins in dairy cattle is increasing. Trouw Nutrition runs an annual global monitoring program in which feed samples and ingredients from across the world are being analysed. Of the 1240 ruminant feed samples tested, more than 90% were contaminated with at least one mycotoxin.

Mycotoxin risk management in dairy cattle requires a comprehensive programme

A mycotoxin management programme should include:

  • Avoiding ingredients that are contaminated through early identification
  • Proper crop management to reduce growth of molds on the field or in storage
  • Adding mold inhibitors and silage inoculants while making the silage and spraying mold inhibitors to the face of the silage after cutting
  • Adding mycotoxin mitigation products into TMR directly or through concentrate portion

Selko TOXO and Selko TOXO-XL

Selko TOXO

Selko TOXO® is a mycotoxin mitigation product that contains bentonite, which has strong binding capacity for aflatoxins, ergot toxines and LPS, in combination with glucose biopolymers which maintain gut tight junctions to reduce the translocation of mycotoxins into blood stream.

Selko TOXO-XL

Selko TOXO®-XL also contains bentonite and glucose biopolymers, but in combination with purified β-glucans that improve the immune function of dairy cows.

Administration

Both products are in the form of a dry powder. The recommended dose is based on the level of mycotoxins in the ration and is 15 to 45 g per head per day for both products:

  • in case of low toxicity: 15 g
  • In case of medium toxicity: 30 g
  • In case of high toxicity: 45 g

Trial 1, Efficacy of TOXO in reducing the negative impact of suspected mycotoxin contaminated TMR of dairy cows

The objective of the study was to determine the efficacy of TOXO in reducing the negative impact of feeding suspected mycotoxin contaminated TMR to dairy cows. The addition of TOXO to the TMR of high performing dairy cattle resulted in improved fertility. This was observed by the farmer, but also reflected in the cow management data, with a significantly (P=0.04) reduced number of inseminations per cow.
(see figure 1).

Trial 2, Efficacy of TOXO in alleviating the negative effects of suspected mycotoxin contaminated TMR, on the reproductive performance of dairy cows.

Figure 2. Compared to a competitor product, TOXO resulted in an improvement of heat detection, fertility and pregnancy rate and the reduction of the percentage of abortions.

The objective of this study is to determine the efficacy of TOXO in alleviating the negative effects of feeding suspected mycotoxin contaminated TMR, on the reproductive performance of dairy cows. During a 10 month trial period, 5 months of treatment with TOXO was compared to 5 months of treatment with a competitor product. The addition of TOXO resulted in a positive effect on heat detection, fertility, pregnancy rate and abortions (see figure 2).
