The San Antonio Marriott Rivercenter (Texas, USA) opened its doors last July to hold a new edition of the Poultry Science Association Annual Meeting, which brought together more than 1,000 scientists, educators, extension specialists and other professional experts to discuss and exchange the latest trends on poultry research and production.
Among this qualified audience, Olmix Group had the opportunity to deliver a scientific lecture on one of the trendiest matters affecting the poultry sector not only in America, but all round the world: how to manage contamination by fumonisins, most occurring mycotoxin.
“Fumonisins are very frequently found in South America and their occurrence in the US has been increasing in the last years. A recent survey highlighted that, in South America, 94.4% of the feeding stuff samples analyzed between 2013 and 2016 were contaminated with fumonisins, making it the most occurring mycotoxin in the area. This represents a significant threat for animal performance. After these results, Olmix Group conducted a study in order to evaluate the capacity of an algae-clay based product (MT.X+) to manage fumonisin risk in poultry production”, Mrs Marie Gallissot, Olmix Group’s For Feed Product Specialist, explained during the conference.
