Scanning cows reveals severe health problems in a dairy herd

On a farm visit in Co. Derry. I noted a dramatic improvement in body condition score and reproductive health, from a previous visit 8 weeks ago. An investigation after the last visit revealed mycotoxin contamination of forages fed to the cows. Unfortunately insufficient consideration is given to this issue and its impact on human health with milk being consumed.
