Try the Alltech Mycotoxin Hotline

Agriculture.com Staff 11/02/2012 @ 10:04am

As livestock producers begin to examine this year’s harvest and prepare to feed the less than up-to-par crop to their animals, many questions are starting to come up in the field. Is this mold? Should I be worried about aflatoxins, DON or other toxins? What steps should I take to protect my herd?

Alltech, an Animal health and nutrition company, has devised an Alltech Mycotoxin Hotline to help answer these questions. The toll free hotline is open and ready to discuss any concerns about this year’s harvest. Besides answering questions from the field, the hotline also provides a centralized point of access to references and industry experts on the topic.

“Alltech’s Mycotoxin Hotline has already received numerous phone calls from producers across the United States this year,” said Dr. Swamy Haladi, Alltech Mycotoxin Management Team. “Not only have we been able to assist with their individual challenges, we have also been able to share some surprising results on this year’s crop from our 37+ Program analysis.”

Alltech’s 37+ Program uses a mass spectrometry technique, LC-MS2, that can investigate over 38 different mycotoxins quantitatively in less than 15 minutes per sample analyzed, with limits of detection in the parts per trillion range. Results from the 37+ analysis should be released soon, according to Haladi.

Call the Mycotoxin Hotline at 866-322-3484.
