New solutions for controlling the hygiene in your feed

New solutions for controlling the hygiene in your feed

Livestock need to have an adequate supply of good quality feed and water, where there is cause for concern regarding contamination with pathogenic bacteria or molds, measures should be taken to minimize possible hazards.

In animal production, the quality of feed is one of the most important keys for raising healthy animals. It is a challenge to minimize the risk of contaminated feed by controlling the feed hygiene in feed facilities. The difficult zones of hygiene can be in the mixer, storage silo, the pellet cooler and the transport pipes in a feed mill.

In moist environments, when temperatures are up, germs can find excellent conditions to multiply. Regular cleaning of the feed processing installation is essential. Flushing the installation with a mixture of ProPhorce™ SA Cleaning and a carrier reduces the risk for microbial contamination.

Over the last few years, bio-security in agricultural operations has gained importance thanks to the increased focus on animal performance. A higher demand for animal health and feed safety in relation to consumer safety, but also the increase in external employees working on farms.
