Reducing ammonia levels and pathogens

BCxS is a natural product derived from marine algae using a unique scientific process. When applied to the bedding or to animal housing as a fogging spray, BCxS helps reduce ammonia in the sheds and faeces which in turn improves the environment of the house.

FAQs

The resulting faeces have greatly reduced levels of ammonia giving further improvements in health from an improved environment. In treated broiler flocks farmers have seen greatly lowered levels of hock burn and pododermatitis. Using the method of competitive exclusion the BCxS reduces pathogen levels resulting in cleaner sheds and healthier birds.

Reduced volatile ammonia in the exhaust air has further implications;
The Environment Agency, Natural Resources Wales, and Scottish Environment Protection Agency are all tasked with lowering ammonia emissions from intensive agriculture and have closed down some existing farms sites and refused planning for others on the basis of airborne ammonia.
Concern with ammonia levels from stored and spread litter. BCxS treated litter has a lower environmental impact, with reduced levels of volatile ammonia when stored and spread, and reduced leaching, assisting EA, NRW, and SEPA compliance.
Total nitrogen within the bedding remains the same, however plant available nitrogen increases providing greater value as a fertiliser or as a feedstock for anaerobic digestors.
