This transfer model can be used to estimate the concentration of dioxins (total TEQ) in body fat of the pig based on oral exposure to feed contaminated with dioxins. General information on how to use the transfer models on this website can be found under “How to use”. The specific manual for the dioxins (total TEQ) – pig can be found here.
