Poultry Litter Gobbler
Chemical-free non corrosive poultry litter treatment for incredible ammonia, pathogen and odour control. Increases poultry health by forming a continuously working protective biological barrier.
Ammonia is a serious and continued challenge for poultry and the farmer. It’s corrosive to equipment and damaging to the environment. Conventional wisdom is to change the acidity of the litter to limit ammonia. Ammonia is a volatile compound and above 7.2 PH it acts as a gas with adverse effects. Below 7.2 PH it’s converted into ammonium. This process fluctuates continually, and as ammonia levels increase costly ventilation must be used, which is not a carbon green solution. Harsh and expensive corrosive chemicals are needed to increase PH in an increasing and difficult cycle.
Mode Of Action:
Poultry Litter Gobbler™ takes novel approach to ammonia by:
Eco bio-enzymes are safe and good probiotics which naturally occur in nature, and are not genetically modified in any way. In every few drops of Eco product, there are tens of millions to billions of good bacteria. When they are applied they quickly go in search of food and space, and rapidly outcompete the bad bacteria for their food source. Quickly Eco bacteria keep on reproducing at an exponential rate and completely colonize the area or system. Soon the bad pathogens starve off and die. An incredible fact is that where conventional disinfectants usually stop working after application, the Ecozyme process can continue for hours, days and more after application, so the effect of a healthy flock environment is long and lasting.
Corrosion of expensive equipment is a serious problem that ruins the profit of poultry operations. Corrosion can happen anywhere in a poultry operation, and current practices in broiler operations only increase the opportunity for corrosion. Corrosion is simply the deterioration of materials through a chemical reaction with the environmental condition. Perhaps the most noted corrosion occurs with the rusting of iron or other such metals. Corrosion is not confined to just metal as it affects plastics, concrete, wood and other materials. The single most deconstructive chemical created by a poultry operation is ammonia. Ammonia will always be produced in a poultry house as it is a reaction between manure, moisture, and microbiology. Typically the higher the humidity of a poultry house the greater ammonia levels become. Ammonia is well noted for its detriments to the welfare of the birds, but we rarely hear about this deterioration of metal components in a poultry house. This deterioration includes valuable fasteners, heaters, walls, ceilings and any other metal object. Many poultry farmers combat ammonia by applying an acid product for poultry litter treatment. The purpose of acid products is to lower the Ph value of the litter. The ends of the spectrum on the Ph scale are ammonia and acid. A very rudimentary thought would be "where there is ammonia let’s apply acid to make it neutral." This solution has not been thought out. It would take as much acid as ammonia to make a fair play and truly offset the ammonia. That would be extremely expensive not to mention dangerous. Use such products lead to elevated acid levels that in turn create an even more corrosive poultry house environment. Products that convert into acid materials lead to groundwater contamination. Poultry Litter Gobbler™ is completely safe and is not corrosive. It’s made up of entirely organic constituents and poses no problem when contacted with skin or animals. By implementing a complete poultry management system with Poultry Litter Gobbler™ a farmer is extending the life of his equipment among other things and is improving his return on investment.
For long term ammonia control, conventional wisdom has been to spread powerful acid products into the poultry house. The logic is that by making the pH level of the litter low enough, if it’s more acidic, then the ammonium can’t in turn convert into ammonia gas. The flawed rationale in this instance is that the ammonium is still there. The acid doesn’t do away with it. It just traps the ammonium and delays the inevitable problem. Eventually, the poultry manure itself will raise the pH, and the ammonia problem will return. Poultry Litter Gobbler™ works completely differently to acid treatments. Eco beneficial bacteria give the natural process a head start which break the ammonium down faster than it normally would. A specific strain of bacteria is present to bind the ammonium with nitrogen to make ammonium nitrate which is conventional plant fertilizer. Once bound up as fertilizer, it can’t change back and ammonia is permanently eliminated. Competitive exclusion takes time for a colony to establish, and after a few days ammonia levels begin to plummet and one will continue to see low ammonia levels. When dealing with a poultry house that has been previously treated with Poultry Litter Gobbler™ ammonia levels will be much lower than a house treated with acid, and adding a fresh application Poultry Litter Gobbler™ drastically improves the situation. With repeated use of Poultry Litter Gobbler™, ammonia problems are nearly entirely eliminated.
