Veal Calves Produce Less Antibodies against C. Perfringens Alpha Toxin Compared to Beef Calves.

of antibodies against these toxins in 528 calves on 4 beef and 15 veal farms. The second study aimed to determine the effect of solid feed intake on the production of antibodies against alpha toxin and ...

Human biomonitoring of multiple mycotoxins in the Belgian population: Results of the BIOMYCO study.

compared between subgroups and urinary mycotoxin concentrations differed significantly among age and gender. Based on the urinary levels, the daily intake of DON and OTA was estimated and evaluated whereby, ...

Potential impact of fertilization practices on human dietary intake of dioxins in Belgium.

scenario. Increases in human dietary intake of dioxin are estimated to be lower than 1% for conventional rearing methods (i.e. grazing animals are reared outdoor while pigs and poultry are reared indoor). ...

Effect of coated and non-coated fatty acid supplementation on broiler chickens experimentally infected with Campylobacter jejuni.

lower in chickens fed coated MCFA than in those fed non-coated MCFA. No effect of MCFA on feed intake or growth of chickens was observed. In conclusion, (i) MCFA are active against C. jejuni and (ii) the ...

The impact of naturally-occurring, trans-placental bluetongue virus serotype-8 infection on reproductive performance in sheep.

(4) the presence of antibody at birth in viable lambs prior to the intake of colostrum (n=9). The evidence provided by this investigation strongly suggests that trans-placental BTV-8 infection occurs in ...

Transfer of soil contaminants to home-produced eggs and preventive measures to reduce contamination.

lead in eggs, i.e. the soil, was identified by transfer calculations of the pollutants from the feed and soil towards eggs. Preventive measures to reduce soil intake or geophagy and hence egg ...

Intake of ochratoxin A and deoxynivalenol through beer consumption in Belgium.

levels in conventionally and organically produced beers in 2003-05. For the consumers of organic beers, the daily intake of OTA was 0.86 (in 2003), 1.76 (in 2004) and 0.72 (in 2005) ng kg(-1) body weight ...

Contaminants in organically and conventionally produced winter wheat (Triticum aestivum) in Belgium.

conservative intakes are estimated for the consumers of cereal-based products such as flour, bread, breakfast cereals, dough and pastry. The results show that for the consumer of organic foodstuffs, estimated ...

Experimental infection of slaughter pigs with classical swine fever virus: transmission of the virus, course of the disease and antibody response.

pighouse. The first clinical signs observed after the virus was introduced into a pen were decreased feed intake, increased mean rectal temperature and apathy. Neither the clinical course of the infection, ...
