From Veterinaire Sector
The (intensive) livestock farmer uses a lot of so-called fodder concentrate. This fodder concentrate comes partly from the third world. Since the mineral present in the organic part is not re-exported, it is then left to the countries (in particular the Netherlands) to deal with an excessive surplus of minerals. The minerals can lead to an odour nuisance as ammonia gas (NH3), hydrogen sulphide gas (H2S) and various other substances, such as mercaptans, mainly originate due to an imbalance in the dung. Adding BioStable restores the balance and in so doing, reduces the pungent odour considerably. Furthermore, the bacteria are stimulated ensuring a better conversion. The dung thus remains structurally much more homogeneous.
How BioStable works:
BioStable is a stable product that reinforces the natural balance in stables. No microorganisms are added. The microorganism present is stimulated to multiply. The breaking up of the fouling is thus accelerated, particularly the urea part. Ammonia develops partly due to the urease enzyme in urine. The nitrification and the denitrification of bacteria are, among others, in an optimal eco-system in the stable, in balance.
Scientific research has shown that, by using BioStable, the ammonia emission is quickly reduced. This has a positive influence on the animals that live in these sheds. They are less stressed and suffer fewer disorders of the airways.
This leads to a more favourable feed conversion.
BioStable consists of fermented plant- and algae extracts whereby trace elements, vitamins and enzymes can completely be absorbed by the microorganisms present. With this intake, the whole eco-system in the dung becomes:
- More stable, more active,
- more homogeneous hence
- less ammonia emission
BioStable is a very concentrated fluid and is sprayed on the floor of the shed. Use 1 litre per 1000 m2 of floor area.
- It is sprayed once a week in pigsties.
- In chick coops it is sprayed only once after 4 days on the litter layer.
It works like a Biocatalyst and BioStable ensures that the eco-system in the stable reaches a higher level.
Research results 1:
A test was conducted at a pigsty with slaughter pigs in which the Animal Health Service and the Van Hall/Larenstein Institute were involved.
Situation at start:
- Two identical pigsties each with 54 piglets, mixed as far as possible to ensure no age differences.
- The dung heaps were separated in such a way that no dung exchange could take place.
- The flow of NH3 was, during the test period, measured at the ventilation openings in each pigsty, both with a handheld (Dräger) as with digital ammonia measuring metres, linked to a pc.
- One pigsty was during the test period treated with BioStable that (once a week with a ¼ litre BioStable dissolved into 10 litres of water) was sprayed on the grids; the other pigsty was sprayed with water.
After 24 weeks when (the animals were transported to the slaughterhouse) it appeared that: the ammonia emission in the treated pigsty during the test period was on average about 70% lower than in the untreated pigsty. in the treated pigsty the mortality rate was 0; in the untreated pigsty 4 had died. there was less one-sided pneumonia in the treated stable, as was lameness too.
Research results 2:
A broiler farm in the province of Groningen with 2 identical coops each with 22.000 chickens. The coops were supplied with one-day chicks; after 6 weeks they left the coop with an average weight of 2 kilos.
Situation at start:
- 2 identical coops each of 1000 m2
- 22.000 one-day chicks in each stable
- Same conditions in each stable (temperature, feed, water etc.)
- The litter layer of one stable was treated with a 1 litre solution of BioStable in 10 litres of water with a hand spray when the chicks were 4 days old (they then run away from the spray)
- The test was carried out for a period of 1½ year, alternating then in the one then in the other coop. In total 12 tests were conducted.
The chicks in the coop treated with BioStable were livelier than the chicks in the untreated coop. There was over a period of 6 weeks in the treated coop some 4 to 6% less mortality rate when compared to the untreated coop. The chicks in the coop treated with BioStable had a higher carcass weight than in the untreated coop, between 50 and 80 grams (2,5% more weight). There was in the coop treated with BioStable less ammonia present (measured daily in the ventilation channels with a Dräger) than in the untreated one. The average ammonia emission level during the 12 cycles in the untreated coop was 80 ppm NH3 and the average ammonia emission level in the BioStable treated coop 20 ppm NH3, a reduction of about 75% ammonia emission.
- no micro-organisms are added, whereby
- a stable, more homogeneous and more active eco-system develops
- odour reduction (in particular NH3) in the environment
- better feed conversion
- less mortality and less veterinary expenses
- Good price/quality relationship
- BioStable is safe for human, animal, plant and environment.
In other words:
- BioStable is an excellent product for the well-being of your animals and commercially attractive for you as entrepreneur
