Improve feed conversion and reduce mortality by targeting the most overlooked aspect of the biosecurity chain – your water supply.
A recent trial in a UK Pig herd where Scotmas ClO2 was compared to Chlorine resulted in an average weight increase of 4% and a feed conversion ratio of 3%
Access to clean water is vital for profitable animal rearing and milk production. Poor quality water leads to prevalence of disease in the herd, and is proven to have a negative effect on milk and meat yields.
Regardless of the source of your water, bacterial infection can build up in water tanks pipework and drinking troughs, leading to poor water quality and associated animal husbandry problems.
Scotmas offer a range of flexible water treatments designed for animal rearing – from Cidox ClO2 tablets, designed for one-off disinfection of tanks and troughs, through to our fully automatic Alpha continuous dosing system which is able to disinfect poor quality bore hole water on a continuous basis to remove pathogens such as Pseudomonas, E.coli and other Coliforms and Enterococci.
The low dose rates of chlorine dioxide required, and our automatic dosing equipment ensure that our disinfection systems are entirely compatible with other veterinary treatments such as vaccines and vitamins that may be periodically dosed through the water system.
Scotmas have specific programs available for all types of intensively reared livestock, and our experience in the sector is second to none. Contact us today to speak with one of our animal husbandry specialists.
