Upcoming webinar on December 2, 2021

The impact of mycotoxins on health and productivity of dairy cows

Adverse health effects associated with mycotoxin exposure are often underdiagnosed

To reduce the risk of mycotoxin exposure in dairy cows, an integrated approach should be in place while procuring raw materials, producing feed and silages and feeding dairy cows. Mycotoxin levels in feeds for ruminants are not easy to predict and monitor at the farm level and clinical symptoms in cows can vary greatly. As a result, adverse health effects associated with mycotoxin exposure are often underdiagnosed.

Professor Dr. Fink-Gremmels will discuss the possible impact moulds and mycotoxins can have on the health, welfare and performance of dairy cows and address concerns regarding milk quality and safety.

Next to that Dr. Swamy Haladi will talk about strategies to mitigate the risks associated with mycotoxin contamination. Mitigation strategies to prevent problems associated with mycotoxins should include avoiding contamination of feed stuff, identifying feed that carries risks, and preventing growth of moulds in feed. Recent developments in the field of mycotoxin management inside the animal will also be discussed.

"Mycotoxin exposure of dairy cattle: animal health, welfare and food safety"

Professor Dr. Fink-Gremmels,

Johanna Fink-Gremmels (DVM, PhD) graduated as a veterinarian in Hannover, Germany, and qualified as a specialist in veterinary pharmacology and toxicology (Dip. ECVPT).

In 1991 she was appointed in The Netherlands by Utrecht University as professor and head of the Division Veterinary Pharmacology, Pharmacotherapy and Clinical Toxicology. A position she held for almost 25 years.

During her entire professional career, she remained fascinated by fungal metabolites, ranging from beneficial antibiotic substances and their application in health care and food preservation, and including the wide range of mycotoxins and their detrimental effects on human and animal health.

"Strategies to mitigate the risks associated with mycotoxin contamination"

Dr. Swamy Haladi

Dr. Haladi is Trouw Nutrition’s Global Programme Manager for the Mycotoxin Risk Management programme. He obtained his Bachelor and Master degrees in veterinary science in India, and then moved to Canada to obtain his PhD in animal and poultry science. During studies and career, he continued to gain more interest and knowledge in the area of mycotoxins, especially the global challenges around this topic.

He published various articles in both peer-reviewed journals as well as industry magazines and he truly understands the global challenge of mycotoxins. He also developed practical limits for mycotoxins in various species.

The webinar is closed.

We will soon share the video.
