Greg,

It was on the corn being used.

Very interesting Darkthirty II.

Amount would have had to be very low for chickens. Birds are the most sucseptible to a-tox.

I would worry a little about standing corn, but considering it hasn't matured and dried until the cooler drier air of fall, the risk is reduced considerably. A-tox is at its worst in hot, wet and/or humid weather.

Should we be concerned with corn planted as a food plot and left standing?

It can be a concern (and has been found in standing corn), but generally the cooler, drier weather of fall reduces the growth of the toxin-producing mold.

89montero,... I see your point. It is tradition,.. not only with you,.. but several folks. Everyone here knows how much actual baiting goes on in there area. Out of season and in season.Some folks are just gonna do it. BUT,.. do it safely. Use only corn that is cleaned ,.. even better triple cleaned. If you use protein pellets,.. keep it dry.And for sure,.. don't put 500 lbs of feed out and let it sit for 2 months in a feeder. If feeding is done correctly,... most folks don't get bothered by it as much. I highly recommend record rack products also.

BSK,

What about the aflatoxin risk of some of these supplental feed products other than corn? At least some of them are higher in protein than carbs?

That was my next question,what about protein feed? I really do appreciate the info, ya'll have really opened my eyes to feeding. I am not saying I'll quit completely, but now I see the other side. The majority of my feeding is protein feed anyway,as a matter of fact I haven't fed any corn yet this year and after reading BSK's explanation I dont know that I will.

Well, I guess on a somewhat "good news front," the price of corn has gotten so high in Texas, that you can feed a like amount of 20% protein for about the same cost...so more people than ever have probably gotten away from feeding corn. :-)

I have seen no information suggesting protein feeds carry an aflatoxin risk. Not that it doesn't, I just haven't seen it mentioned in any research.

The primary reported problems associated with protein feeding are: 1) high risk of transmitting any contagious disease that is present in the area; 2) acclimating deer to rely too heavily on feeders; 3) habitat damage in the vicinity of the feeder; 4) seriously altering natural travel patterns to be focused solely around the feeders; and 5) increasing herd reproductive success to the point over-population becomes a major problem.
