Description

Mycotoxins in corn and other grains can reduce performance in both ruminants (cattle, sheep, goats) and non-ruminants (swine, poultry) and can have detrimental effects on both finishing animals and reproducing males and females. For reproducing animals, the mycotoxin zearalenone (ZEA) is of the greatest concern. This document discusses zearalenone's actions on reproductive systems and the reproductive consequences of feeding swine and cattle grain that is contaminated with the mycotoxin zearalenone.
