Since attention to animal bedding hygiene is important for the health of all animal species, we have products to support this. Below are a few examples of how our products contribute to optimum animal bedding hygiene:
Cattle: Our products help to absorb the moisture resulting from milk and urine in the animal bedding. These products also increase the pH, therefore reducing bacterial growth. The drier the animal bedding, the lower the risk of bacterial growth.
Pigs: Our products also ensure that newborn piglets dry faster, which prevents heat loss. The use of our products in piglet nests gives the newborn piglets better grip, enabling them to walk to the udder more easily to drink colostrum. At the same time, a thin layer of lime is applied to the skin and umbilical cord, making it difficult for bacteria to enter the young animal.
These products can, of course, also be used for other animal species.
Our animal bedding hygiene minerals are inorganic products. A characteristic of inorganic products is that they are not a breeding ground for bacteria such as E. Coli bacteria and Streptococcal bacteria. Rock minerals can also bind large amounts of moisture, therefore animal bedding floors are drier. This dry environment makes it difficult for bacteria to multiply.
