Livestock and Fisheries Applications
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.
- 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.
- Conception rates improve due to improved nutrition.
- Meat freshness characterized as longer lasting.
- Improved environment — Significant decrease in odor-generating ammonia in buildings.
Carbon for Livestock & Fisheries
pH: around 8
Carbonized Material: Conifers and hardwoods
Features: Light specific gravity
Specifications: 50 L bag
Content: 10 kg
Particle size: 0.5-2 mm
- 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
