Brookside Agra's FloBond protects against mycotoxins

During wet years, the possibility of mycotoxins from mold and fungi growth in grain products and storage bins is even greater.

Mycotoxins can have a devastating effect on swine, livestock and poultry production. During wet years, like the one we are having this year, the possibility of mycotoxins from mold and fungi growth in grain products and storage bins is even greater. The solution to protecting animals from the threat of mycotoxins is using all-natural FloBond from Brookside Agra.

FloBond is a 100% organic-certified binder and anti-caking agent that is proven in multiple laboratory studies and field trials to bind with the mycotoxin to form a larger particle that is unable to pass through an animal's gut wall. Instead, the larger particle is safely secreted from the animal's body through its feces. FloBond does not affect the feed's vitamins, minerals, nutrients or flavors.

Mycotoxins, toxic substances produced by mold and fungi, occur in most feed grains including corn, wheat, oats, soybeans, sorghum, cottonseed, rye and rice. When consumed by poultry, livestock, fish and pets, mycotoxins can cause cancer, liver and kidney problems, infertility, growth rate reduction and other problems that affect animal performance and profitability.

"Feed grains and storage bins exposed to moisture are more susceptible to growing mold and fungus. Adding cost-effective FloBond to animal feeds provides insurance to farmers that their animals will be protected from mycotoxins, no matter what quality of feed grains they may be working with. If your livelihood depends on your animals' health, why would you want to leave that to chance when you have an affordable protection option with FloBond?" says Tim Nelson, vice president of Animal Health and Nutrition Sales at Brookside Agra.

FloBond comes in easy-to-use powdered and granulated formulas that work with standard mixing equipment to blend with regular feed. FloBond is approved by the USDA and contains no dioxins, chemicals or additives and is allowed in European Economic Community countries. Sold in 92 countries and on every continent, FloBond is available in 50-pound bags and 2,000-pound bulk bags. FloBond is made in the United States.
