The mycotoxin and endotoxin challenge in the GIT of swine

In our last episodes, we have learned a lot about the development and effects of different toxins in livestock production. In this episode we will have a deeper look in the mode of action between mycotoxins and endotoxins.

Find out what happens in the grastro intestinal tract (GIT) if there is a co-occurrence of myco- and endotoxins! Are there any vaccine reactions? Which production stage is most at risk and what management solutions do exist?

We will talk about this topic with an expert in animal health - Dr. Simone Schaumberger. As a group leader for Research & Development she planned and implemented feeding experiments as well as laboratory tests to find new feed additives and to make basic research in the field of endotoxins and mycotoxins. Additionally she was author and co-author of numerous peer review papers. Currently as a veterinarian she advises and assists farmers who are interested in organic farming.

Our next episode will be released on the 17th of February.
Stay tuned!
