Abstract


The hepatogenic role of mycotoxins is well-known, but their action on some biochemical and haematological parameters in the dairy cows is yet to be completely clarified. The investigation monitored the modification of blood test values and of some biochemical parameters from the serum and urine of dairy cows reared in small family farms and which consumed feeds contaminated with mycotoxins. Ten blood samples and 10 urine samples were collected and subsequently analysed. The samples were collected from 5 family farms, one in each of the following countied: Dolj, Giurgiu. Ilfov, Călăraşi and Galaţi. The blood and urine samples were analysed for their biochemical parameters. The results of the biochemical analyses of the blood and urine samples were correlated with the results of the mycotoxicological analysis of 105 samples of forages collected from the surveyed family dairy farms. The results showed that some biochemical parameters exceeded the normal physiological level, which may be the result of a defence reaction of the organism to the aggressive action of the mycotoxins identified in the forages given to the dairy cows.
