  1. For each weaning batch, three pooled feed samples were collected. The results of the three individual samples (A) are shown as well as the mean of the three pooled samples (B). The last column shows the total average per mycotoxin
  2. aEU reference value in feed for pigs and piglets for deoxynivalenol is 900 µg/kg, and for zearalenone 100 µg/kg, respectively
  3. bA mycotoxin detoxifier was added to the feed of weaning batches 2, 3 and 6
