Animal Husbandry

Based on requests from several of our clients, Osorno has formulated products for animal husbandry applications. Osorno serves clients with their poultry, turkey, hog, cattle, and aquaculture operations, and provides products for distribution cleaning and disinfection, water disinfection, surface disinfection and air disinfection in the barns, plus special products for animal health and vaccination.

Antioxidants for Vaccine Distribution

VacciTect™

VacciTect™ is an enhanced anti-oxidant which eliminates disinfectants in water (chlorine, chlorine dioxide, hydrogen peroxide). This avoids interference between the water disinfectant and medications, vaccines, or vitamins injected into the drinking water line. Osorno’s VacciTect™ is a solution that temporarily destroys the disinfectant, and is safe for use with animals.

Osorno sells VacciTect™ in 1 litre bottles.

Recommended dosage: 100 – 200 ml of VacciTect™ per 1 m3 of water, or 440 – 880 ml of VacciTect™ per 1,000 imperial gallons of water.

Stabilized Sulphur Dioxide

Stabilized Sulphur Dioxide (also referred to as bisulfite bleach, sodium hydrogen sulfite or sodium bifulfite) is one of the few reducing disinfectants, that also can be used for neutralisation of hydrogen peroxide (concentrations above 5 ppm) and residual chlorine (concentrations above 2 ppm) in drinking water before, during and after vaccination.

Osorno sells Stabilized Sulphur Dioxide in 1 litre bottles and 20 l delcans.

Recommended dosage is calculated by Osorno prior to the application.

Hydrogen Peroxide & Peracetic Acid

Hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) and peracetic acid are the disinfectants of choice in hatcheries for egg shell washing. Both oxidize the organic layer on the surface of egg shells destroying bacteria and fungus spores. Also, hydrogen peroxide with peracetic acid can be used as surface disinfectant and disinfectant for pipes flushing in barns.

Recommended dosage for 12% H2O2 solution: 0.5% concentration (40 – 45 ml per 1 litre of water).

This product has also been successfully used in aquacultural operations to reduce mortality of trout fingerlings.

Hydrogen peroxide (12%) is sold in 4 litre jugs and 20 litre delcans.

Fungicide #1 (mix of Hydrogen peroxide & Peracetic acid)  is sold in 4 l jugs. They should be stored in a cool, dark place to maintain their efficacy.

Usage information is provided with the product, and is dependant on the application.

Chlorine Dioxide and PowerOxide™

Chlorine dioxide is an effective water disinfectant with high persistence and disinfection power. Osorno can advise clients on whether a chlorine dioxide generator or the use of PowerOxide™ is the more economical solution for their particular situation. Chlorine dioxide solution can be used for water disinfection, and preventative flushing of distribution.

Dosing rate of chlorine dioxide is calculated according to the application.

Gaseous chlorine dioxide is a powerful disinfectant for use in hatcheries prior to incubating a new charge of eggs.

Preparation as Gaseous Chlorine Dioxide: A small portion of PowerOxide™ (4 litre) can be prepared and left open inside the hatchery for 1 day. For better transfer of chlorine dioxide gas, bubble air through the solution. Chlorine dioxide solution can be also sprayed with fumigator (fumigation equipment can be recommended by Osorno).

Chlorine dioxide solution can also be used as a powerful area disinfectant.

Preparation as Area Disinfectant:  Dilute 10 ml of concentrated PowerOxide™ solution in 1 litre of water.

DisOx™ Surface Cleaner and Disinfectant

DisOx™ is a powerful multi-purpose disinfectant powder that contains KMPS (potassium monopersulphate) with a wide spectrum of activity against viruses, fungi and bacteria.  It is effective for use in hatcheries and barns for superior pathogen control.

DisOx™ is sold in 1 kg jars and 5 kg pails. Download DisOx™ User Manual
