Benefits on Livestock
Wood Vinegar is an all natural livestock deodorant derived from plant extracts. The skin friendly plant chemicals bind themselves to odour causing agents on the animals body and waste, effectively breaking down, absorbing and transforming them into a natural acidic state and destroying and suppressing bacteria, viruses and other odour causing pathogens. The result is a non-stimulating deodorisation that is non-toxic and leaves no residue, creating a good bacteria forming environment that is healthy and fresh for your livestock.
Also studies showed that when charcoal and wood vinegar were used as feed supplements in poultry, salmonella bacteria which are responsible for gastrointestinal diseases of chickens were eliminated. In chicken egg production, farmers claimed that their hens improved their egg laying production, had better rearing characteristics and improved their hatching efficiency. It is also improved the quality of eggs such as better taste, reduces cholesterol content and had harder egg shells.
Studies on swine production showed that sows improved their performance. They became healthier, their fertility rate improved and piglet size became uniform. The fatteners, also improved their feeding efficiency and meat quality. The foul odour from the manure of the pigs was also reduced. Furthermore, reports from farmers indicated that their sows increased their milk production and diarreha among piglets were prevented and cured.
In cattle it is reported by farmers that wood vinegar also improved meat quality, fertility rate, milk production and feed efficiency.
