Animal & Facility Hygiene
DeLaval Teat Dips
A good udder preparation and milking routine, combined with post milking teat dipping/spraying, has a proven impact on reducing mastitis. Our range of high quality teat dips will keep teats in excellent condition.
Alkaline & Acid Detergents
High quality milk production requires regular cleaning of your milking facility. Our high quality detergents and cleaning agents are designed to compliment DeLaval equipment to ensure an efficient cleaning routine and quality milk output.
Liners & Tubing
Good cluster position during milking ensures good milking performance. DeLaval tubes, bundled with DeLaval tube holders, help the cluster to stay in the optimal position under the udder. All DeLaval tubing materials balance stiffness, elasticity, flexibility and surface character to hold their shape and bend easily.
Joe's Refrigeration offers a wide liner assortment to fit all cluster types and meet your specific production demands.
ACEPSIS™ CHLORINE DIOXIDE TECHNOLOGIES
Acepsis™, LLC is focused on the use of chlorine dioxide technologies as a primary step within a total hygiene program.
Safe for all hygiene applications:
Chlorine dioxide is considered one of the most powerful disinfectants available, but more importantly it can be used safely across the wide range of animal agriculture applications:
- Water hygiene treatment
- Facility hygiene treatment
- Animal hygiene treatment
Chlorine dioxide is a powerful oxidizing agent, and oxidizing agents are the most prominent disinfectants used in the animal agriculture hygiene processes (chlorine, sodium hypochlorite, iodophors (iodines), hydrogen peroxide, peracetic acid and ozone). Chlorine dioxide is a gas, that when created, is more soluble and much more efficient in water than chlorine / sodium hypochlorite. Chlorine dioxide does not hydrolyze (break apart) in water like hydrogen peroxide and sodium hypochlorite.
Unlike chlorine / sodium hypochlorite, chlorine dioxide does not react with naturally occurring organic materials, that form trihalomethanes (THMs) and bromates. Chlorine dioxide aids in reducing the formation of total trihalomethanes (THMs – are disinfection byproducts that form when chlorine compounds that are used to disinfect water react with other naturally occurring chemicals in the water). Acepsis chlorine dioxide formulations have been approved for use by NSF International and Organic Certifiers.
Mastitis is still the #1 herd health problem our industry faces. Facility management, pre- and post milking routines and the choice of udder health products all have an influence on your results.
The Acepsis™ NOVA™ SMART Milking Hygiene System provides a breakthrough technology combination of concentrated Precursor formulas, combined with a patented production system. The NOVA™ SMART System puts a dairy farm, and its Milk Quality Team, in complete control.
NOVA™ Prep’s quick, wide spectrum kill makes it perfect for lower concentration, pre-milking hygiene applications. The NOVA™ Post formulation has the ability to provide a low drip, post-milking formulation, with the optimal Protection.
Water is considered the most essential nutrient for livestock production, and is needed in numerous processes, such as regulation of body temperature, growth, digestion, reproduction, and physical health.
Water quality plays a critical role in the health and production of livestock operations. Water quality may be altered by contaminants such as, mineral salts, toxins, and heavy metals. Other contaminants include disease causing pathogens, that are may times harbored in the water system, or are passed from animal to animal in the water troughs and in the form of biofilm. Biofilm in the drinking water system becomes a primary disease transmission vector.
Acepsis water treatment technologies remove the biofilm throughout the water system and provide a safe and efficient water hygiene program. AquaSoar™ Activator & Base are concentrated precursors that produce chlorine dioxide-based solutions for the quick and complete removal of biofilms and disease pathogens.
Looking clean is no longer an adequate facility hygiene practice. Optimal hygiene requires the proper steps to provide the highest level of protection against the spread of disease-causing pathogens.
Developed and formulated to aid in the control of disease-causing organisms, the Acepsis HabiStat™ technologies ensure the proper facility environment, key to the health of the animals. Optimal hygiene requires the proper steps to provide the highest level of protection against the spread of disease-causing pathogens.
Let us show you how the Acepsis technologies aid in developing your best facility hygiene practices.
