The presence of mycotoxins in feed is associated with lower performance, health complications, reproductive issues and increased medical costs. Despite the fact that solutions are available to prevent mycotoxin formation or counteract the effects when animals digest the toxins, the prevalence of mycotoxins across the globe remains a problem. This is due to several factors, of which climate change is one. Prof Felicia Wu of Michigan State University in the United States notes that climate change patterns (more rain for instance) in the decades to come will affect mycotoxin levels in crops and consequently the costs for grain growers and feed mills.
