Livestock and Fisheries Applications

(Charcoal/Wood Vinegar)

Charcoal for mixed feed for poultry and pig farming.
1-2% compounds result in amazing eggs and great tasting meat!

When agricultural and livestock charcoal is added to feed,

  • Because agricultural and livestock charcoal is a weak alkaline with a pH around 8, it makes the acidity of livestock into alkaline, reducing the adhesion of unnecessary fat. It also makes eggs alkaline, improving freshness and hardening the yolk.
  • Because agriculture and livestock charcoal contains a few percent of inorganic components, particularly a lot of calcium, eggshells are hardened and there are fewer cracks.
  • Because agriculture and livestock charcoal has a porous microstructure, it has a large internal surface area of 300-400 m2/g. Thus ammonia, a major malodorous substance, is adsorbed into the pores, reducing the odor of excreta.

Uses

Fisheries Applications

  • Reduction of water pollution in aquaculture ponds.
  • Improved health and decreased fish disease and infections, maintaining a high survival rate.
  • Improved fish meat quality and maintenance of freshness.

Livestock Applications

  • Conception rates improve due to improved nutrition.
  • Meat freshness characterized as longer lasting.
  • Improved environment — Significant decrease in odor-generating ammonia in buildings.

Examples of Use

  • To reduce fat, normally apply 1%, or 1.5-2% for short periods, to the general feed.
  • For improved egg freshness and to prevent cracks in eggshells, add 1-2% to general feed.
  • To deodorize manure, add 2-3% to general feed.

Add charcoal/wood vinegar to feed!

Chickens: Eggs – significantly reduce odors, increase egg-laying rates, prevent soft-broken eggs and improve egg quality;
Broiler – enhance feed efficiency, reduce floor drying/excess fat

Dairy cattle: Improve milk fat percentage and milk flavor

Pigs: Significant reduction of odors, improved feed efficiency, improved milk acidity (when raising piglets), improved fat and meat quality

Fisheries: Improved meat quality (firm flesh), conservation of water quality, enhanced nutrition and promotion of energy metabolization
