Interests: mycotoxins; animal nutrition; reproduction; intestinal health; domestic animals; wild animals; in vitro; poultry; swine; cattle; animal reproduction
Interests: dairy animal nutrition; feed evaluation; feed safety; digestion; silages; mathematical modeling; system dynamic modelling; multivariate statistics; decision support system
Interests: physiopathology of periparturient ruminants (dairy cattle in particular); strategies to attenuate nutritional and immune dysregulation (mainly inflammation) in transition period; implementation of tools of precision livestock farming; assessment of dairy cow welfare; strategies to reduce antibiotics treatments (mainly at dry off); relationship between animal welfare, health status, nutrition and milk properties (included cheesemaking traits); interaction between nutrition, forestomachs and gut functions; environmental sustainability of dairy production
Climate change will intensify the competition between humans and livestock for grains and plant proteins. Changes in temperature and CO2 levels will not only affect composition of feedstuffs, but also will increase the incidence of mycotoxins. Although cattle is considered less susceptible to mycotoxicosis due to their degradation in the rumen, exposure to a mixture of mycotoxins or when dairy is experiencing sub-acute ruminal acidosis (SARA) will enhance the negative impact of mycotoxins on dairy production and reproduction. The aim of this Research Topic in Dairy is to gather the most recent advances related to the effects of mycotoxins on dairy production and fertility. For this, both in vivo and in vitro research is welcome. Review articles, research papers and technical notes giving an update on the risks, prevention, and treatments of mycotoxicosis are encouraged.
