Hands down – this is the best way to get your poultry house back up on top of the payout scale!
Chemicals are losing effectiveness in controlling poultry diseases such as Avian flu, LT, salmonella, E. coli, and coliform. Research on the effectiveness of the poultry house sanitizer conducted by Dr. Susan Watkins at the University of Arkansas showed that exposure to heat dramatically reduced pathogens. The results of this research confirm that heat is a consistent pathogen killer, as these microorganisms cannot build up a resistance to its cell-rupturing effects.
Windrowing is one currently accepted way to handle persistent disease problems in poultry houses. That means 8-10 days until you can start your next flock of birds, and a lot of extra labor. The typical temperature ranges from about 135F, up to a maximum of about 170F, depending on moisture content and the amount of time the pile is left standing. These temperatures are not usually adequate throughout the piles to kill pathogens and pests. Meanwhile, ammonia levels in your house increase as does the need for additional ventilation and chemicals like PLT or A7. Darkling beetles also tend to increase, necessitating the use of even more chemicals. Growers are tired of the extra work and less than optimum results from windrowing and are ready for safe, quick, effective flaming!
"It is our recommended practice for growers to use flame sanitation to rid poultry houses of any pinfeathers, dust or other residue capable of carrying disease"
- Carla Everett, Director of Public Information for the Texas Animal Health Commission.
I’ve seen it- improved performance in your poultry house with only a few hours work. What are you waiting for?
Most notably, the growers are seeing increased livability in the third and fourth week, when they most need it. The 30-35 day livability rate is important because high mortality at that age has a direct negative effect on feed-conversion rate and the grower’s bottom line.
The poultry house sanitizer also flames off the ammonia vapors in the litter, allowing for the first three weeks of production to be virtually ammonia-free.
Think about it
Before: walking into your poultry house and needing to hold your breath on the way to turn on the ventilation fans.
After: Breathe comfortably with the fans off and the doors shut.
All without costly chemicals.
Your birds will appreciate it, too.
