Mycotoxins have always been a hassle to swine producers, especially with high concentration in the feed for the last few years.

In today’s talk, Dr. Don Giesting and Dr. Chris Parks from Cargill discuss how to best mitigate the negative consequences from mycotoxins and what mycotoxin levels to expect in the coming year.
