How to Control Mineral & Algae Build-Up In Evaporative Cooling Systems

Posted by FarmLab Innovations on Jun 26, 2019

Whether you work in the poultry or swine industry, chances are that you use an evaporative cooling system to keep your animals comfortable and healthy as temperatures climb during the warmer months. 

And as you may know, despite the fact that these cooling systems can be incredibly beneficial to those in the agriculture industry, they can also experience issues like mineral and algae build-up, scaling, and uneven water distribution — which ultimately results in unsanitary equipment and reduced system functionality.

That’s why we designed SWASHCOOL-CELL.

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.

Committing to biosecurity is essential for producers who are committed to protecting animal health and preserving resources for the next generation. Without a focus on proper biosecurity, animals are at greater risk for infection and disease. These issues pose a serious threat to animals’ longevity, and can impede a grower’s ability to successfully pass down his or her assets to future generations.

Boosting Wean Weights at the End of the Farrowing Period

Posted by FarmLab Innovations on Apr 10, 2019

A number of factors play a crucial role in the delicate first days of a piglet’s life. Proper farrowing room conditions are critical, as piglets emerge with highly fragile immune systems and struggle with body temperature regulation. This makes them susceptible to illness. Pig scours are another common issue, and can quickly spread bacteria (such as E. coli and Clostridium perfringens Type C), while posing a serious threat to a piglet’s well-being.

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.
