Toxicity, metabolism, and impact of mycotoxins on humans and animals.
TLDR
Mycotoxins have various acute and chronic effects on humans and animals depending on species and susceptibility of an animal within a species, and ruminants have, however, generally been more resistant to the adverse effects of mycotoxin.

TLDR
The results indicated the prevalence of a large number of pathogenic STEC in beef and beef cattle at high rates and emphasized the critical need for control measures to assure beef safety.
Prevalence of shiga toxin-producing Escherichia coli in dairy cattle and their products.
TLDR
Dairy cattle are considered reservoirs of STEC and can impose a significant health risk to humans, and the global nature of food supply suggests that safety concerns with beef and dairy foods will continue and the challenges facing the dairy industry will increase at the production and processing levels.
Prevalence of Shiga toxin-producing Escherichia coli in beef cattle.
A large number of Shiga toxin-producing Escherichia coli (STEC) strains have caused major outbreaks and sporadic cases of human illnesses, including mild diarrhea, bloody diarrhea, hemorrhagic
Invited Review: Prevalence of Shiga Toxin-Producing Escherichia coli in Dairy Cattle and Their Products
TLDR
Dairy cattle are considered reservoirs of STEC and can impose a significant health risk to humans, and the global nature of food supply suggests that safety concerns with beef and dairy foods will continue and the challenges facing the dairy industry will increase at the production and processing levels.
Nutrient digestibilities, microbial populations, and protein catabolites as affected by fructan supplementation of dog diets.
TLDR
It seems that low levels of supplemental fructans have divergent effects on nutrient digestibility and fermentative endproducts, but do not adversely affect nutrient Digestibility or fecal characteristics and may improve colonic microbial ecology in dogs.
In vitro fermentation of cellulose, beet pulp, citrus pulp, and citrus pectin using fecal inoculum from cats, dogs, horses, humans, and pigs and ruminal fluid from cattle.
TLDR
The fermentability of different fibrous substrates by fecal or ruminal microflora from various species seems to be dependent not only on the fermentative activity of the microbial population but on other factors as well, perhaps lag time and rate of digesta passage.
Prevalence of Shiga toxin-producing Escherichia coli in beef.
TLDR
Of the 155 STEC serotypes found in beef, 31 and 25 are known to cause HUS and/or other illnesses, respectively, and global testing of beef showed wide ranges of prevalence rates of O157 and non-O157 STEC.
Soybean hulls as a dietary fiber source for dogs.
TLDR
Results indicate that soybean hulls can be an effective dietary fiber source in dog diets and cause a negative linear effect on calculated ME, in addition to lowering ME when compared with the 0% fiber control diet.
Effects of cereal grain supplementation on apparent digestibility of nutrients and concentrations of fermentation end-products in the feces and serum of horses consuming alfalfa cubes.
TLDR
Results suggest that horses consuming alfalfa cubes could be supplemented with rolled barley, corn, naked oats, or oats at levels not exceeding 0.2% of BW as TNC without affecting nutrient digestion or overall health negatively.
