BRZ FOR RUMINANTS

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Size:    8 x 40,14 x 40, 30 x 60, -40 mesh

APPLICATIONS

  • FEED

This is the most effective point of addition. Many farms have eliminated most of their odor by feeding between ˝ to 2% BRZ™ of the total ration on a weight basis. A 14 x 40 or 40 mesh product should be fed in mash, or a 40 mesh or 60 cycle should be used to pelletize supplements.

  • BEDDING AREA

A thin layer should be applied to the bedding area or to the area that receives the manure each time it is cleaned out.

  • COMPOST OR DRY STACKED MANURE

The compost or dry stacked manure should be “top dressed” with a thin layer of BRZ™ after it is turned or after the addition of a new layer of manure is added. Alternatively, a layer of BRZ™ should be placed in the area of the barn receiving the fresh manure. Composting is an important process that (1) converts organically bound nitrogen that is not plant accessible to ammonium hydroxide, ammonium nitrate, and ammonia that are plant accessible, (2) kills the pathogens, (3) reduces or eliminates the odor, (4) dries the manure, (5) reduces the flies, and (6) kills weed seeds. Composting should be more durable pellet.
 

BENEFITS

  • INCREASED NITROGEN CONTENT OF MANURE AND COMPOST

BRZ™ increases and fixes the nitrogen in the manure and compost so that it is plant accessible but not water-soluble. Many of the fields that have been repeatedly fertilized with cow manure now have phosphate problems. This is a result of not enough nitrogen to balance the plant uptake of the phosphate. The problem can be solved by increasing the nitrogen content of the manure, compost, or lagoon water.

  • BRZ™ ADDS VALUE TO MANURE AND COMPOST

The introduction of BRZ™ with the manure, compost, or lagoon water to the soil has the added benefit of increasing water retention, holding the nitrogen and other micro-nutrients in the growth zone, providing a medium for the future capture of nitrogen, increasing the ion exchange capacity of the soil, provides potassium and calcium, and enhancing infiltration and aeration of the soil. BRZ™ is a value added soil amendment that should be advertised

  • GROUNDWATER POLLUTION CONTROL

Fixing the nitrogen and various heavy metals reduces the pollution of the groundwater.

  • ODOR CONTROL

Increasing legislation is mandating the control of odor. The most effective way to control odor is to feed BRZ™ in quantities of ˝% to 2% of the total ration. The BRZ™ exchanges the ammonium cation in the alimentary track before it gases to ammonia and creates odor.

  • FLOW AGENT/ANTI CAKING AGENT

BRZ™ is a flow agent and anti-caking agent in urea and other oil feed ingredients.

  • INCREASED PELLET DURABILITY FOR FEED PELLETS

BRZ™ allows the operation of pellet mills at higher temperatures that reduces friction and increases production. The higher temperature results in better gelatinization and a more durable pellet.

  • INCREASED NITROGEN CONTENT OF MANURE AND COMPOST

BRZ™ increases and fixes the nitrogen in the manure and compost so that it is plant accessible but not water-soluble. Many of the fields that have been repeatedly fertilized with cow manure now have phosphate problems. This is a result of not enough nitrogen to balance the plant uptake of the phosphate. The problem can be solved by increasing the nitrogen content of the manure, compost, or lagoon water.
