Effects of Moldy Feed andMycotoxins on Cattle
Dr.Kedar Karki
Effects of Mold
- Moldy feeds are less palatable and may reducedry matter intake. This in turn leads to areduction of nutrient intake, reducing weightgains or milk production. Performance losses of 5 - 10% are typical with moldy feeds even in theabsence of mycotoxins. Mycotoxincontamination increases production losses, evenwhen mold is not readily visible.
Effects of Mold
- Moldy feed may have reduced digestibility and energycontent may need to be adjusted down by 5%. Moldsgrow and propagate deriving energy from the feed'sprotein, fat and carbohydrate. Dietary fat in particular isreduced in mold infected feeds. Suggested that bookvalues for energy be multiplied by 0.95 in the presenceof substantial amounts of mold (ie 95% of energy value).Some researchers suggest reducing energy by as muchas 10% (ie 90% of energy value).
