A Serious Challenge Facing You and Your Cows.
Livestock feeds and moisture are two opposing forces that continually challenge feed manufacturers and dairy producers like.
Not All Binders Are Created Equal.
Feed grains are ideally stored with moisture concentrations of less than 13% to help “compensate for non-uniform moisture concentrations throughout the grain mass.”* But if feed is stored at a high moisture level, it is more susceptible to mold contamination. Mold growth may lead to mycotoxin formation during manufacturing, storage, delivery and feeding of the animals.

Successfully Manage Your Feed Hygiene.
AB20® nutritional specialty product is a bentonite adsorbent containing hydrated sodium and calcium aluminosilicates that reduces caking and flowability issues by binding moisture present in feed. Binders lower moisture in feed, reducing the potential for mold growth — and lowering mold growth in feed improves its quality. This is important when you consider that some molds can produce a wide range of harmful mycotoxins.
