Abstract   

The aim of this study was to determine aflatoxin, zearalenone (ZON) and deoxynivalenol (DON) in some feed and feedstuff samples obtained from several farms and animal feed manufacturers in Turkey. A total of 106 samples (76 feedstuffs and 30 feeds) were analyzed by HPLC method. In samples of feedstuffs, ZON occurred at a high incident rate, however, AFG1 and G2 had a lower incident rate. In feed samples, although AFB2 and G2 occurred at a low incident rate, ZON had a higher incident rate. The data obtained in this study showed that toxin levels in feed and feedstuff samples were lower than maximal allowed levels.

Key words: Aflatoxin, Deoxynivalenol, Feed, Feedstuff, Zearalenone
