One hundred and fifty eight broiler compound feed samples were delivered from broiler flocks in Ninevah governorates. These flocks were clamed to be affected with field aflatoxicosis. All the examined samples had aflatoxin levels higher than of the permissible limit (20 ppb). The range of AF levels was 22-2263 ppb. The mean value of AF concentration was 592.7ppb. The percentage of AF concentrations from 0-500 ppb was 48.7%, and from 500-1000 ppb was 41.2%, while that from 1000-2500 was 10.2%.
