Statistical Estimation of the Degree of Contamination with Mycotoxins in Feed for Cattle

Adriana Amfim

Abstract


The research aimed toxicological monitoring of feed produced in a unit type CFF of an intensive type ruminant farm during january-june 2013. To fulfill that  purpose were collected and analyzed a total of 10 forage samples represented by CF T2-0-3 steers, soybean grist, corn, CF ruminants, CF muttons, CF 01-0-3 muttons, CF 21-2 for  determining mycotoxin load, pursuing the following parameters: concentration of AFB1, concentration of ZEA, concentration of OTA. Quantitative determination of residues of aflatoxin B1, ZEA and OTA in cereals and animal food was performed by ELISA immunoassay. Following the research it was established that 80% of the total samples were contaminated with both OTA and AFB1 AND ZEA; 3 of the 8 contaminated samples (37.5%) showed high levels of concentration for the three mycotoxins.
