BETA Mycotoxin Working Group

Whilst knowledge of the adverse effects of moulds on horses has long been documented, the issue of mycotoxins in equine diets has come to the fore more recently.

The working group provides information and guidance on mycotoxins to BETA feed members. This is achieved by the production of scientific and lay publications on the risk of mycotoxins in equines and equine feeding stuffs and disseminating the latest scientific and expert opinion regarding acceptable levels of mycotoxins in equine diets.
