Healthy livestock that reaches it genetic potential for example for growth, FCR, fertility or milk yield is the ultimate goal for any modern farm enterprise worldwide. Hygiene Solutions play an important role in achieving this goal by ensuring a clean and pathogen free environment to produce and house livestock.
The efficiency and success rate of cleaning and disinfection products on farm-level do not only depend on the product quality but at least as much on following the farm specific hygiene program in which these products should be implemented.
The use of hygiene programs also leads to a higher biosecurity status of the farm. Biosecurity is the combination of all measures taken to avoid disease pathogens to enter into the farm from outside (external biosecurity) and all measures taken to prevent pathogens to spread inside the farm between animal groups (internal biosecurity).
This shows that a complete hygiene program for the whole farm is crucial and for each part or section of the farm a certain specific protocol from the hygiene program applies.
A hygiene product therefore should be especially designed so it works in a specific area. Different materials for surfaces (plastic, coated iron, concrete etc.) in animal houses will determine the best product of choice for that area. Cleaning and disinfection the inside of drinking water lines in pig & poultry houses or the milking lines of a dairy milking parlour requires specific hygiene products.
Our Hygiene Solutions, VITAFOR offers a full range of high quality hygiene products for poultry, pig and dairy farms.
