Natural probiotic product helps horses

Keeping horses healthy is the key to all ranches and barns, and at Escalon, California-based WRT, officials understand horses are cared for as extensions of the immediate family on the farm.

To ensure that livestock and horses are in good health and peak performance shape, WRT recommends the addition of all-natural probiotic formulas to routine nutritional programs.

Jackpot Probiotics bring beneficial soil-borne microbes (bacteria), created in nature, to the animals. The microbes in Jackpot help to naturally maintain the animals’ digestive systems for optimum digestion of food.

Benefits of using Jackpot Probiotics include alleviated anxiety, healthier coats, improved weight gain, happier animals and less food and water is required as nutrient extraction becomes maximized.

The Jackpot formulas are concentrated. Users should apply 1 to 2 ounches per 50 gallons of water or one to two drops directly on top of feed.

Technology to boost ethanol production

ICM Inc., Colwich, Kansas, has announced that Patriot Holdings, LLC of Annawan, Illinois, has entered into a letter of intent for ICM’s patent-pending fiber separation technology and ICM’s patent-pending Generation 1.5 grain fiber to cellulosic ethanol technology (Gen 1.5) for its ethanol plant.

Fiber separation technology (FST) is a value-added platform that increases ethanol yield and throughput, as well as increases oil recovery for its customers. FST separates the fiber that will be used as the feedstock for the Gen 1.5 process to produce cellulosic ethanol. Removing the fiber from the standard ethanol process with the FST process allows the plant to produce each gallon more efficiently as well as creates the option of diversified co-products with high protein feeds and fiber.

ICM Inc., provides innovative technologies, solutions and services to sustain agriculture and advance renewable energy, including food and feed technologies that will increase the supply of world protein.

By providing proprietary process technology to 102 facilities with a combined production capacity of approximately 6.8 billion gallons of annual ethanol production, ICM has become a leader in biorefining technology.

Firm releases corn herbicide brand signature

As Acuron corn herbicide (SYN-A197) from Greensboro, North Carolina-based Syngenta moves toward expected Environmental Protectoin Agency registration for the 2015 growing season. The unveiling of the brand signature is the latest milestone in the herbicide’s development.

Within the Acuron signature, four inverted triangles adjoin to create a star. Each triangle represents the herbicide’s four active ingredients, including new bicyclopyrone. Syngenta developed the star icon to communicate the high-performance control Acuron has delivered in more than 600 trials across the United States.

Syngenta developed Acuron, which contains three modes of action, in response to the expanding problem of weed resistance and the resulting increase in demand for residual herbicide products with multiple modes of action. Acuron will be labeled to control more than 70 broadleaf weeds and annual grasses, including giant ragweed, common ragweed, marestail, kochia, Palmer amaranth, waterhemp, cocklebur, Russian thistle, sunflower and morning glory.
