Disinfecting your Chicken House and Equipment

: News & Articles : Animal Husbandry Tips : Disinfecting your Chicken House and Equipment
Posted on: 2015-12-05

Disinfectants should be applied only after the building and equipment have been thoroughly cleaned, ideally right after rinsing. Disinfectants can be applied by sprays, aerosols or fumigation. Don’t be intimidated by the thought of “fumigating” your hen house, using a garden type sprayer is the easiest method, and chances are you already have a suitable disinfectant around the house.

Follow the manufacturer’s directions for mixing and dilution of these disinfectants. A good rule of thumb is to apply at the rate of one gallon of diluted disinfectant per 150-200 square feet of surface area. For a more thorough disinfecting, soak waterers and feeders in a 200 ppm chlorine solution (1 tablespoon chlorine bleach per gallon of boiling water).

In order to reduce SE and other health risks, a complete dry cleaning, washing and disinfection of the poultry house after each flock or at minimum once each year is recommended.

Start by removing all birds from the area to be cleaned, along with all equipment that can be cleaned in another place, such as feeders and waterers.

We suggest using Stalosan F animal housing hygiene product for effective control of: bacteria, fungi, viruses, parasites, moisture, ammonia and hydrogen sulphide.

Stalosan F creates optimal sanitary conditions in animal housing in the production period, ensuring improved animal health and wellbeing and optimised feed utilisation. This requires protection of the animals’ immediate environment by regular use of Stalosan F, which offers a combination of long-term and broad-spectrum effects.

Stalosan F improves the animal housing environment without facilitating development of resistant strains.

Stalosan F consists only of active ingredients all of which are decisive for its effect. This is different from most other powder products which are composed of a tiny percentage of active ingredients and a large amount of inactive carriers.

The composition of Stalosan F focuses not only on controlling pathogenic microorganisms but also on counteracting harmful chemical and biological imbalances which always occur in high-production herds. Such herds are acutely sensitive to outbreaks of disease as the high concentration of animals strains the housing environment, both in terms of a higher risk of infection and the formation of harmful waste products which further heighten the risk of infection.

The general, basic idea of Stalosan F is thus to create a product that offers a diverse broad-spectrum effect against pathogenic microorganisms, combined with the ability to neutralise harmful chemical waste products which would otherwise heighten the risk of infection and disease.
