Some deer corn not tested, labeled for toxin
John McCoy of the Charleston (WV) Gazette has been keeping an eye on newly emerging news about a naturally occurring toxin caused by corn mold that may prove injurious?or even fatal?to deer, quail or other wildlife.

While USDA guidelines require bagged corn sold for deer feed to test less than 20 ppb for alfatoxin content, most of the corn McCoy found being sold at local stores in his area for that purpose did not carry testing information on the packaging. Read McCoy?s full article here.
