Gain Time by Cleaning, Says CID Lines

01 October 2013

BELGIUM - Organic dirt must be cleaned away for disinfection to be effective, according to CID Lines.

After the animals are moved out of their pens, it is time to start the cleaning protocol. The sooner you start the better! Manure is easier to remove when it is still moist and the longer a clean and disinfected pen is left to dry before new animals enter it, the better.

Very few bacteria and viruses can survive a long period of drought without the presence of organic matter (manure, biofilm, etc.).

Within the presence of organic dirt, however, some micro-organisms can survive up to 60 days in a dry environment. Therefore cleaning is an absolute must! Organic dirt cannot be disinfected.

Kenosan - the new standard in cleaning

Kenosan combines ultra-strong adhesion power and deep dirt-penetrating capacity at very low dilutions.

The high-level formulation guarantees a unique cleaning result in heavy-duty circumstances on the pig farm, where even the most dense and dried-up dirt (manure, litter, etc.) stands no chance against the dissolving power of Kenosan.

Kenosan delivers this high level cleaning result at 1.5 per cent, which makes it very cost-effective per square metre cleaned.

Average consumption:

  • farrowing house: one litre of concentrate per 20 farrowing crates
  • growers-finishers: 300ml solution per square metre.

Kenosan is safe for materials and environment.
