Table 1 Herd size, farming system (Free stall: FS; Cubicle with earthen paddocks: CEP), average daily milk yield per cow, dry matter intake (DMI), contaminated feeds in the ration, inclusion rate of clinoptilolite (% dry matter; % DM) and grouping according to the particle size of clinoptilolite (SC: <0.15 mm, LC: <0.8 mm) in the 15 farms (F1 to F15) included in the study

From: In-field evaluation of clinoptilolite feeding efficacy on the reduction of milk aflatoxin M1 concentration in dairy cattle
