Studies show that grain (barley, wheat, rye and maize) and straw from the 2020 harvest contain more mycotoxins than normal.

Before it reaches that stage, problems often start to appear in herds. Lately we have heard of symptoms similar to the ones listed below from many of our customers. That would seem to indicate that the immune system of their cows is under pressure.
