  • An effective hygienic powder for all livestock environments
  • Dry Disinfectant pH-neutral
  • Non Toxic Skin friendly
  • Environmentally Safe Binds ammonia

  • Effective against fungi

Selko – BE+

How to check on yeast development

  • Store a sample of your wet feed in a closed plastice bottle @ room temperature.
  • If yeasts are present gas production can be seen within 4 hours – See picture.

Importance of Good Feed Hygiene

When feed hygiene is not under control problems are caused by large amounts of yeast in by-products and liquid feeding. Yeast consumes the sugars and starch in the liquid feed and produces carbon dioxide and water. This results in the following:

  • Nutritional value of the feed decreases
  • Feed intake can decrease by 10-20%
  • Causes upset stomachs and disease
  • Lower growth rate.

Selko – BE+ achieving Good Feed Hygiene

  • Works selectively against yeasts and gram negative bacteria
  • Growth of the useful lactic acid bacteria is not affected.
  • Reduces pH-value of the by-product & gives no deviations in taste and smell
  • Is a liquid product which can easily be dosed automatically

For results see table below

Selko-pH

The acid concept as drinking water additive against bacteria, yeast and moulds.

Moulds, yeasts and bacteria, like E – Coli, Salmonella and Campylobacter, can develop very quickly in the water. Polluted drinking water is not only consumed reluctantly but it is also a continual contamination source and can cause diseases and decrease performance of the animals.

Selko -pH: What it can do for you?

  • Selective direct and indirect effect against E.Coli, Salmonella, yeasts and moulds
  • Stabilizes water quality
  • Increases the performance of the animals (daily gain, feed utilization)
  • Diminishes the risk of blocked drinking nipples
  • Leads to more healthy animals (e.g. improved skin colour).
  • Improves Feed Conversion Ratio (FCR)
  • Less dependency on antibiotics
  • Recommended for feed to reduce diarrhoea and stress during moving.
