SlurryBugsTM Shift-It is a powerful formulation of freeze-dried bacteria and specific enzymes to keep slurry liquid. Ongoing usage of SlurryBugs Shift-It means narrow channels and channels with minimal fall will work significantly better at delivering slurry into the lagoon.
Crust build up in channels causes major handling problems and is a potential breeding site for flies. Keeping the slurry liquid and homogeneous on a day to day basis is vital for efficient slurry handling, nutrient preservation and controlling odour.
How many pots do I need:
For initial application for each 450,000 litres of stored slurry 1 pot is required, following that every 100 cows housed indoors requires 1 scoop of SlurryBugs a week (200 cows – 2 scoops, 300 cows – 3 scoops and so on). Each pot contains enough SlurryBugs for 10 scoops. For example, if you have 900,000 litres of slurry stored and 300 cows housed indoors you will need a total of 4 pots of SlurryBugs to see you through a month. 2 x pots for the initial treatment and 2 pots for the ongoing treatment which requires 12 scoops (1.2 pots) over 4 weeks.
Why use SlurryBugs® Shift-It:
Crust build up and blockages in channels cause major handling problems for slurry and becomes a potential breeding site for flies and pathogenic bacteria. Keeping the slurry homogenous on a day-to-day basis is vital for efficient slurry handling, getting the maximum nutrient value into your soil, and controlling odour.
SlurryBugs® Shift-It is a powerful formulation of bacteria and extra concentrated enzymes to keep even the most problematic of slurry systems flowing. Ongoing usage of SlurryBugs® Shift-It means even narrow channels with minimal fall will continue to deliver slurry into your stores and ensure maximum recovery from your stores for spreading.
Treating slurry with SlurryBugs® Shift-It helps to:
• Keep problematic slurry systems flowing
• Reduce the risk of blockages in narrow channels with minimal fall
• Improve the slurry’s fertiliser quality and value
• Mobilise Nitrogen (N), Phosphorous (P) and Potassium (K)
• Reduce bought-in fertiliser costs
