Farm animals are at risk of exposure to zearalenone (ZEA) in feedstuffs, which may lead to aberrations in their reproductive development, thereby adversely affecting production outcomes. The objective of this study was to determine the effect of long-term (48 days), per os administration of low ZEA doses (50% [20 μg ZEA/kg body weight (bw)] and 100% [40 μg ZEA/kg bw] NOAEL values) on anatomopathological changes in the ovaries of sexually immature gilts. The experiment involved 12 clinically… CONTINUE READING
