Warren,
RI, March 18, 2010 – An increasing number of dairies are using sand as bedding
for their cows as it provides a clean, healthy environment. Reusing the sand is
not only cost effective but environmentally sound. However, sand must be
cleaned properly to avoid spreading disease and infection amongst the herd. Two
companies that supply environmental treatment solutions have joined
technologies to develop a new solution: SandSmartTMBTR.

Pro-Act
Biotech
provides biological products and systems while EcoSolutions has the
engineering expertise. Together, their technologies deliver a complete manure
treatment system from design to implementation that results in clean, reusable
sand.   

SandSmartTMBTR
is a biological product designed specifically for sand-bedded dairy farms and
is best used in a flush or flush flume manure system. The key to cleaner sand
is cleaner flush water. SandSmartTMBTR provides the dairy with flush
water that cleans the sand with ease. Cleaner sand provides a healthier
environment for the cows. 

“SandSmartTMBTR
is not only the key to healthier and comfortable cows, but it’s essential to
keep the farmers in compliance with CAFO regulations,” explains Bill Campion,
president of Pro-Act Biotech.

The
system treats and stabilizes animal wastes, making them farmer and
environmentally friendly by reducing TSS, BOD, viscosity and odor.

The
use of SandSmartTMBTR can also help meet with possible future regulations.
Independent tests confirm a substantial reduction in hydrogen sulfide emissions
when using SandSmartTMBTR. This reduction could be important in the years to
come.

Often
times, a dairy farm undertakes repeated attempts to make the manure system
functional.

As
part of their service, SandSmartTMBTR program strives to avoid such redundancy
by providing free evaluations of existing manure treatment systems.
