A major portion of feedstuffs is naturally contaminated with multiple mycotoxins at various levels. Ingestion of feeds contaminated with mycotoxins can affect the growth and health of animals depending on the combination of mycotoxins, their contamination levels, and duration of exposure. Feed producers and animal producers manage mycotoxin contamination by following governmental restrictions or guidelines for certain mycotoxins. However, chronic exposure to multiple mycotoxins can still affect the growth and health of animals even at low levels below the regulatory or guidance levels. This Special Issue will include original research papers investigating the impact of naturally contaminated mycotoxins in feedstuffs and feeds at various levels and combinations on growth of health of animals. The collective efforts on this topic would deepen our understanding of how to handle mycotoxins at practical levels.
