    Pro-Act Microbial, Inc founder and president Bill Campion recently announced the availability of the company’s products in the Midwestern US. Campion, whose years of work in microbe technology resulted in this microbial system for livestock manure treatment, says that Pro-Act Microbial products excel in results and ease of use.

    “We have developed a system for livestock producers, especially dairy farms, to solve the problems that arise when manure is stored in lagoons and slurry storage tanks,” says Campion. “Our microbes help producers comply with the new CAFO (Concentrated Animal Feed Operations) and Nutrient Management Regulations that call for implementation by the end of 2006. We have successfully treated millions of gallons of troublesome manure for our customers, reducing odor and liquefying solids while building a gentle, fast-acting fertilizer. Reducing solids allows the nutrients to stratify giving the dairyman flexibility in application; a valuable tool to comply with the new regulations.”

    Wisconsin dairy producer Tom Wagner of Middleton agrees. “Since we started using the Pro-Act System in May, we could see a difference,” says Wagner. “The floors of our free-stall barn haven’t been this dry since we started using recycled flush water several years ago,” he says. “After the application of Pro-Act Microbial microbes to our lagoon, we could see that the water we use for flushing wasn’t slimy any more.” Wagner adds that he has seen far fewer of his 1,500-head herd slipping and falling because his walkways dry quickly after the flush.

One of the many benefits of the Pro-Act system is that the microbes feed on the solids that collect in the lagoon. “We were able to pump our lagoon right down to the clay lining,” says Wagner. “The solids were gone. Our Total Suspended Solids (TSS) runs 80 lbs per 1,000 gal., our Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) test 74 lbs per 1,000 gallons. The odor is way down too,” he says.
