The role of roughage provision on the absorption and disposition of the mycotoxin deoxynivalenol and its acetylated derivatives in calves : from field observations to toxicokinetics Universiteit Gent
A clinical case in Belgium demonstrated that feeding a feed concentrate containing considerable levels of deoxynivalenol (DON, 1.13mg/kg feed) induced severe liver failure in 2- to 3-month-old beef calves. Symptoms disappeared by replacing the highly contaminated corn and by stimulating ruminal development via roughage administration. A multi-mycotoxin contamination was demonstrated in feed samples collected at 15 different veal farms in ...

Randomized field trial on the effects of body weight and short transport on stress and immune variables in 2U+2010 to 4U+2010weekU+2010old dairy calves Universiteit Gent
BACKGROUND: Whether underweight calves respond differently to transport stress, enhancing their disease risk, is currently unknown.OBJECTIVE: To determine the effects of low body weight and transport stress on immune variables.ANIMALS: Twenty-one 2- to 4-week-old male Holstein calves, housed on a commercial farm.METHODS: Randomized clinical trial. Full factorial design with 4 treatment groups: low body weight (U+226446U+2009kg)/no transport ...
Risk factors for antimicrobial use in veal calves and the association with mortality Universiteit Gent
The intensive use of antimicrobials in the veal industry is heavily criticized, but drivers for antimicrobial usage (AMU) are still poorly understood. The industry fears that a drastic reduction in AMU would increase mortality, creating an unacceptable welfare issue. The objectives of the present study were to identify risk factors for AMU and to explore the relationship between AMU and mortality. A retrospective cohort study was performed on ...
