A new water line cleaner has been launched by Citadel Environmental Solutions. The product, Biocat+ OSAA L, removes calcium carbonate build up and biofilms from water lines.
OSAA L is organic and replaces the need to use hydrogen peroxide in the water line.
“Many livestock farms are looking for an alternative to caustic or acidic water line cleaning products. OSAA L solves that problem for poultry operations,” said Henry Madders, managing director at Citadel Environmental Solutions.
In an on-farm trial conducted in Suffolk, UK, a 16,000-bird free-range farm using OSAA L saw an 8% reduction in feed costs, a 4% increase in total eggs produced, a 95% reduction in antibiotic treatment, a 35% decrease in egg seconds and a noticeable increase in brown egg size and quality.
