Alquerfeed Antitox is mycotoxin binder of Biovet S.A. which added in feed reduces the negative effects on the animals and productive parameters increase.
This essay was presented by Dr. Kolapo Aujwon, University of Purdue, at the XXX International Biovet Symposium held from October 27 to 31, 2017 in Cordoba. The essay explores the effect of a mycotoxin binder protector on growth and health of pigs.
