Mycotoxins alert

What you need to know now

Broad spectrum of activity offers the best protection

Your feed deserves better

The best strategy here is to go for a multifunctional mycotoxin binder that is efficient against a wide range of mycotoxins. Dr. Eckel’s mycotoxin binder Anta®Ferm is the solution of choice here. It protects livestock from both polar and apolar mycotoxins and reduces the associated negative effects on animal health and by that helps optimise productivity and resource use. As trial results demonstrate, Anta®Ferm is considerably more effective than other products. In a trial with broilers, Anta®Ferm was tested against Product 1 (yeast-based, dosage: 1 kg/t) and Product 2 (clay-mineral–based, dosage: 2 kg/t) over a period of 36 days. As opposed to these products, Anta®Ferm is an activated, multifunctional complex of organic and inorganic binding components. The feed for the negative control (NC) contained no mycotoxin binders. The feed for all the experimental groups was contaminated naturally with all problematic mycotoxins (Table 1).

Table 1: Mycotoxin levels in naturally contaminated feed

Mycotoxin Feed contamination [ppb] [ppb]
T-2 170,0
Deoxynivalenol 270,0
Aflatoxin 5,0
Zearalenone 27,0
Ochratoxin A 23,0
Fumonisin 1.700,0

The results showed that broilers fed Anta®Ferm achieved by far the best gain and feed conversion (Figure 1). These were even significantly better results than those for Product 2, despite the fact that a double dosage of the latter was applied.

The increase was greater in the Anta®Ferm group than in all three comparison groups (NC: +8.0%; Product 1: +5.4%; Product 2: +2.4%). Similarly, feed conversion (FCR) was visibly improved by 9%, 3% and 2% in the Anta®Ferm group as compared to the NC, Product 1 and Product 2 groups respectively.

Why Anta®Ferm is the better choice

The ingenious advantage of Anta®Ferm is its unique composition. It consists of inorganic and organic mycotoxin binders that are chemically activated. As a result, it works in a particularly wide pH range and is highly effective against most mycotoxins. This characterises Anta®Ferm as a premium mycotoxin binder Anta®Ferm is therefore the right choice to effectively counter the increasing mycotoxin pressure and the current challenges on the feed market.
