Mode Of Action For Crystal Creek’s® Mycotex
Enzymatic: Results in the degradation of fungal metabolites or the modification of their molecular structure to produce harmless compounds that can be safely metabolized.
Adsorptive: Highly selective bio-active sugars and polarized ions in Mycotex bind a wide range of fungal secondary metabolites/mycotoxins. Binding and immobilizing mycotoxins on ions or into a complex with the bio-active sugars is a precursor to their subsequent inactivation and degradation by microbial or enzymatic action.
Microbial: Modulation of the beneficial intestinal microflora helps to maximize the degradation and metabolism of fungal metabolites and enhance the metabolic processes responsible for nutrient uptake and conversion.
Mycotex is designed to be added to the ‘total mixed ration’ (TMR) at the time the feed is being mixed. Mycotex begins to neutralize mycotoxins immediately when added to the feedstuffs and continues to actively neutralize mycotoxins within the rumen. Research suggests that ingredients found in Crystal Creek’s® Mycotex function well against mycotoxins such as Vomatoxin (DON), T-2, Zearalenone, and Aflatoxin. As animals recover, feeding rates of Mycotex can be reduced. Mycotex should be fed in conjunction with Fuse 207™ in severe cases.
Add to the TMR/ration at time of mixing/feeding fresh each day
First Two Weeks: Mix 2 to 3 lb. per ton of TMR (as fed weight) per day for the first two weeks or until cows show response.
Weeks 3 and 4: Gradually reduce to 1 to 2 lb. per ton of TMR (as fed weight) according to animal performance.
After Week 4: If the cows continue to show positive results, then continue to reduce Mycotex in the TMR to a point where results can be maintained using the least amount of Mycotex. In many herds the on-going maintenance level may be as low as 1/2 lb. per ton of TMR, depending on the level of mycotoxin in the feedstuffs.
Note: In some situations, it may be beneficial to feed Fuse 207™ as a basic preventative and use Mycotex as a targeted strategy.
