Recent wet conditions may have caused mold and mycotoxin problems in corn fields. SDSU Extension Swine Specialist Dr. Bob Thaler says the two most concerning ones showing up are Vomitoxin and Zellaranown He says pork producers need to be cautious and make sure they don’t get into hog rations.
Thaler says Vomitoxin can also cause problems.
He advises producers to take samples and send them into the lab for testing.
Thaler says there shouldn’t be any problems with the corn that’s already harvested and in the bin.
