Mycotoxicosis are a serious economic problem in cattle, with considerable repercussions not only above animal health but sometimes even above human health. This problem is very often undervalued and underestimated in case of not specific symptomatology or apparently unexplainable compromising of productive and reproductive performances. A lot of mycotoxins are dangerous for cattle and in addition to a specific symptomatology connected to the type of mold, they are able to modify the rumen functionality worsening the general health status due to digestion's alteration. Food and feed contamination is a world wide problem and the concentration of mycotoxins in these products is connected with several factors. Apply appropriate and specific operative protocols during producing, collecting and storage phases is the only way to limit mycotoxicosis because are not available enough guarantee about the efficacy of the products able to adsorb the mycotoxins, in order to reduce their specific and not-specific toxicity. Indeed, mycotoxicosis are rarely caused by only one type of mycotoxin, very often the real mycotoxin feed concentration is not known and furthermore, the contamination level is underestimated because of the possible presence of "masked" mycotoxins. In the end, the effects of multiple mycotoxin interactions, or possible low doses chronic effects are not completely explained.
