Disadvantages of feeding contaminated feed to animals

Rainwater can make the feed, straw or silage wet and it may lead to fungal growth. 

  • If the animals are fed with this contaminated feed/silage, it can cause cancer in animals.
  • This fungal infection can lead to toxicity in milk, which is harmful for the person consuming this milk. 
  • Therefore, store the animal feed and straw in a dry place and arrangements should be made to prevent water from entering in the silage.
