Mycoflora and mycotoxins contamination of different cattle feed samples of north Telangana region was analysed both quantitatively and qualitatively. The feed samples were highly infested by A. flavus, A. terreus and Penicillium species. The incidence of the rest of the fungi varied with the type of sample and the place of collection. The toxigenic potential of different mycotoxigenic fungi varied with substratum. The strains of A. flavus, A. terreus and Penicillium citrinum elaborated aflatoxin, patulin, terreic acid and citrinin respectively. The significance of occurrence of mycotoxigenic fungi in different fungi in different cattle feed is discussed.

Keywords: Mycoflora, Cattle feeds, Aspergillus, Penicillium, Fusarium, Mycotoxins and Mycotoxigenic fungi
