Sodium bisulfate (SBS), commonly used in the dairy industry to reduce bacterial counts in bedding and ammonia emissions, was shown to be effective in the mitigation of ammonia and alcohol emissions from fresh dairy slurry as well as other areas.
Acidifying amendments have been shown to be effective in reducing ammonia emissions from poultry operations. This study set out to evaluate what levels of PLT were needed to maintain ammonia levels at or below 25 ppm during the grow-out period.
Researchers at Colorado State University evaluated the affects of ammonia and bronchitis vaccinations on bird performance and quality. One finding was significant increases in condemnations. Learn more about the study now.
Researchers studied the influence of various levels ammonia on bird. Results showed a variety of significant impacts including reductions in respiratory rates, food consumption and growth. Read the full study to learn more.
The use of sodium bisulfate (SBS) for ammonia reduction is well documented. The profitable economics of its use is laid out in this study. Read the full report to learn about all the implications of SBS use.
When the concept of water acidification was first introduced to the poultry industry, its validity quickly became favorable. Producers began to view lowering water pH below 4 as a necessary component to a salmonella control program.
