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 Store sells VacciTect™ (for batch applications) in 1 litre bottles or VacciTect™ Forte (for automatic injection) in 20 litre delcans.

Recommended Dosage:

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

VacciTect™ Forte recommendation about dosing rate depends on the application.

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 Store 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 Products

Hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) and peracetic acid based products 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, varies hydrogen peroxide and peracetic acid products can be used as surface disinfectants or disinfectants for pipes flushing in barns.

All chemicals are sold in Osorno Store:

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

2. Fungicide #1 (mix of Hydrogen peroxide & Peracetic acid)  is sold in 4 l jugs.

3. HydroD (hard surface disinfectant that  kills 99.99% of bacteria, fungi and viruses, DIN 02505681) is sold in 4 l jugs.

All chemicals should be stored in a cool, dark place to maintain their efficiency.

Information about usage is provided with the product, and  depends 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.

Chemicals for chlorine dioxide generation can be purchased in Osorno Store: a) Liquid chemical sets; b) PowerOxide (ANSI60 certified) kits; c) PowerOxideMD kits.

Dosing rate of chlorine dioxide is calculated according to the application. All product use information is described in the User Manuals: User Manual PowerOxide™ ; User Manual PowerOxide™ MD.

Gaseous chlorine dioxide is a powerful disinfectant for use in hatcheries prior to incubating a new charge of eggs. Chlorine Dioxide Gas can be produced in two ways: 1) a small portion of PowerOxide™ (1 l or 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; 2) chlorine dioxide solution can be also sprayed with fumigator (fumigation equipment can be recommended by Osorno).
