Dairy Farming Applications
Humic acidscan be successfully used as an additive in animal feed. Various research trials conducted worldwide have all showed positive results concerning the use of humic acids as an organic feed ingredient. Increases in liveweight of animals, improved growth rates, increased feed intakes and food conversion ratios and a stronger resistance against diseases are the common results of these trials. By improving immune function of animals, especially of young animals, humic acids also reduce the incidence of enteric disease and diarrhoea.

Because of its superior disinfection ability, many applications of chlorine dioxide have been found to be extremely beneficial in the dairy industry. Dosing the drinking water lines has led to the reduction in bacteria in the water and thus decreased the somatic cell count in the milk. Replacing iodine with chlorine dioxide as the active ingredient in teat dips has led to reduced mastitis cases. Using chlorine dioxide as a CIP agent in the milk line disinfection has brought a decrease in the E-coli count found in the milk, thus increasing milk quality. Using chlorine dioxide in cow washes has led to reduction in mastitis, decreased hairy hoof wart cases and overall improved herd health.

In the dairy industry, the composition of the effluent stream varies according to the type of product. The water may, for instance, contain emulsions or have an extreme pH value or high temperature. Therefore, the treatment method required depends on the produced dairy product. AQUA Industrial Watertreatment offers various systems to treat the wastewater efficiently. With the help of a large Dutch dairy producer, a specific treatment process LOCO® has been developed, which has been adapted for use in the general production process.
