  1. Data presented for each weaning batch and for all weaning batches together, with the average mycotoxin concentration. Fifty-nine animals were blood sampled twice, at 7 and 10 weeks of age (4 and 7 weeks post-weaning, respectively)
  2. aA mycotoxin detoxifier was added to the feed of weaning batches 2, 3 and 6
