How to Reduce the Threat of Salmonella In Poultry Houses

Posted by FarmLab Innovations on Sep 25, 2019

Salmonella is a huge concern right now in the poultry farming world.

Typically, poultry breeder and layer operations have a 6 - 10 month flock, followed by a 4 - 5 week down time. During that down time when the flock is gone, the farms have to go through the cleaning process, and a lot of cleaning has to be done.

Here are some crucial tips for growers to keep in mind as we head into the last few months of the year:

SWASHHOUSE™ vs. SWASHDUST-REPEL™: Which Option Is Right For You?

Posted by FarmLab Innovations on Jun 11, 2019

Both SWASHDUST-REPEL and SWASHHOUSE are products designed to make sanitation routines more effective, efficient, and eco-friendly in poultry and swine facilities.

Since both products save both time and water as you wash fans, nest boxes, breeder ramps, farrowing rooms, nurseries and related equipment, the two can be mistaken to serve the same purpose — however, each individual product offers distinct benefits depending on your needs and goals.

Make Light Trap Sanitation Easy and Ensure Optimal Bird Health

Posted by FarmLab Innovations on May 29, 2019

To manage poultry’s energy levels, regulate hormones, and improve immune function, integrators should closely control the number of hours of light that their animals receive each day. When they’re less than 20 weeks old, birds need between eight and 10 hours of light daily, and after 20 weeks they can receive roughly 15 hours of light each day.

Looking Back on an Innovative, Exciting 2018

Posted by FarmLab Innovations on Dec 13, 2018

It’s hard to believe that 2018 is drawing to a close. It’s been a productive, enlightening year at FarmLab Innovations, and we extend our thanks and gratitude to all of our clients and partners. At the beginning of this year, we were focused on offering a litter amendment product to make growers’ lives easier. However our mission has always been to bring our lab to your farm, and in one of our conversations with a grower, we realized that dust buildup on fans was a continual problem. “We can fix this,” we said to ourselves. After hours spent refining our products, SWASHDUST-REPELTM and SWASHHOUSETM were born. SWASHDUST-REPELTM is now successfully used to control dust buildup on fans in poultry houses, while SWASHHOUSETM has found an important place in farrowing rooms in order to stop the development of organic matter.
