Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Mycotoxins are prevalent in typical grains and legume seed meals fed to animals. Multiple mycotoxins are often present and detectable in most feeds and are hard to avoid in practical animal production environments. The duration of exposure, types of combination, and contamination level of mycotoxins can affect the nutrient metabolism and physiological status of animals. This Special Issue will include original research papers and review articles investigating the impact of mycotoxins in naturally contaminated feeds in various combinations and at different levels on the nutrient metabolism and physiological status of animals.
