SPECIAL REPORT: What’s in your corn? What about your DDGs?

Molds and mycotoxins can have a negative impact on your pigs. In this episode of Feedstuffs Precision Pork, we dig into what to watch out for as well as possible solutions.

Harvest is here, and that means it’s time to be on the lookout for molds and mycotoxins, and to be aware of how they might impact your pigs. 

Depending on the strain and prevalence, mold and mycotoxins can mean minor productivity setbacks or major health concerns. 

In this Feedstuffs Precision Pork Special Report, Feedstuffs editor Sarah Muirhead talks with Chris Parks, swine nutritionist with Cargill, and Don Geesting, micro nutrition innovation lead with Cargill. They discuss the negative impact of mycotoxins on pigs, and what can be done to minimize the risk of mycotoxin contamination.

Plan today for tomorrow’s success. These are uncertain times, and it will pay dividends to be well-prepared. Hog nutrition experts at Cargill are available to assist you with your questions.
