Did you know Bionetix® animal feeds have more than one use? While their main purpose is to boost livestock digestion and promote a healthy immune system, some of these biologicals have recently been purchased for use in poultry bedding. Here is a closer look at how and why they work.
Probiotics for Livestock
Bionetix® animal feeds could also be called “probiotics” for livestock. As with human probiotics, these animal feed additives contain beneficial bacteria and other biologicals and nutrients that support better digestion and promote a healthy immune system. An exciting feature is that similar mechanisms at work inside the gut of cows, chickens, and pigs can help with animal bedding and manure management!
Accelerated Waste Digestion
Some of the benefits of these biologicals is simply passed on in animal waste from livestock consuming POULTRY-FEED™, SWINE-FEED™, or DAIRY-FEED™. However, these same products can also be added directly to livestock bedding to improve waste digestion there. The biological mechanisms break up solids and decrease organic content, thus reducing odor and bedding maintenance costs.
Better Compost, Manure, and Biogas Production
After the bedding ends up in the compost heap or the manure pit, the biological action continues, speeding up the biodegradation process to create more valuable fertilizer/compost and reduce manure pit maintenance costs. It can also help with hydrolysis for bedding or manure that is converted into biogas.
