Toxicity by “anti-birds” sorghum

To prevent wild birds from ruining sorghum fields, it is common to use a type of this cereal called "anti-birds" that contains high concentrations of tannins and causes rejection by these wild birds. In the image this type of sorghum can be observed in the gizzard, which has a high content of antinutritional factors and tannins, and produces intestinal and liver toxicity, in addition to reducing digestibility. Furthermore, it can lead to disorders in the digestive tract.
