Product reduces odor associated with carcass composting
Brookside Agra, O’Fallon, Ill., has formulated an all-natural solution with its Advanced Bio Pro Concentrate and composting protocol with an all-natural liquid blend of stable, active microorganisms, enzymes and bio-stimulants that degrade ammonia ions, amines, hydrogen sulfide and mercaptans.
With increasing concerns over ground water contamination, aesthetics and expenses associated with traditional burying, burning and pick-up of animal carcasses, farmers are turning to a more acceptable, cost-effective method of carcass disposal—composting. Turning the carcasses of poultry, swine and cattle into a rich humus that can be used or sold as a fertilizer or soil amendment has become a profitable solution for many farmers; the downside is the strong odor, insects and varmints that usually accompany carcass composting.
When mixed with water and applied to animal carcasses, Advanced Bio Pro Concentrate works to increase the activity rate of naturally occurring and bio augmented microbes to: remove 95 percent of odor within three days; absorb odors until bacteria can digest organics; reduce composting time by 30 percent to 50 percent; reduce ammonia emission by 50 percent within minutes; control hazardous gases; help meet discharge parameters; and eliminate fruit fly and mosquito larvae.
Advanced Bio Pro Concentrate is effective for eliminating odors and controlling insects and varmints in swine buildings, poultry houses, manure piles, pet runs, food processing areas, garbage holding areas, processing plants, barns and trailers.

Company unveils precision hay preservative application system
Hay preservative application is easier and more precise than ever with the new 600 series automatic applicator system for Case IH large square balers. The new system integrates seamlessly with the Case IH AFS Pro 700 control center for highly efficient and precise application of hay preservative, without the need for a separate monitor in the cab.
The application system uses sensors that directly interface with the baler and tractor to determine hay moisture content, speed of baling in terms of tonnage, how much preservative is being applied, and total tons baled. The system can also store up to 300 job records by field, including the date and time of baling, number of tons baled, product used, and overall moisture levels. Within those job records, the system also can store up to 33,000 individual bale records. Records can be downloaded via a USB port for easy and efficient access to crucial bale data.
Case IH developed the new system in collaboration with Harvest Tec, an industry leader in hay preservative and the exclusive supplier of ThirtyPlus hay preservative. Producers use ThirtyPlus hay preservative to bale hay with moisture content up to 30 percent without worrying about dangerous heat levels or toxic mold damage. ThirtyPlus is created from acetic acid and buffered propionic acid, which is also found naturally in the digestive system of horses, making it safe for livestock and also non-corrosive to baling equipment.
The 600 series automatic applicator system also has the capacity for add-on features such as ProID bale taggers, dye sprayers, bale weight information and GPS yield mapping.
