In order to address the ingestion of feed contaminated with mycotoxins, Biomin in August 2009 launched the Mycotoxin Channel on YouTube . The channel has since garnered more than 14,000 visits despite its niche subject by meeting the need for information on mycotoxin issues.
The Mycotoxin Channel currently features more than 70 videos on a range of mycotoxin-related issues. Biomin plans to continue to add a new video each week.
