Lime disinfection is so efficient and safe

In order to purify the environment and eliminate pathogenic microorganisms, pig farms need to regularly disinfect livestock houses, sites, utensils, etc. Disinfection with lime is a relatively common method, which is low in price, easy to purchase, and strong in disinfection.

It can also prevent a variety of infectious and parasitic diseases. As a disinfection method commonly used in pig farms, there are still many farms that cannot be used correctly. Not only can they not effectively disinfect, but they may also have some side effects.

How to use lime

First of all, it needs to be clear that the quicklime has no disinfection effect. It is necessary to add hydrated lime to produce slaked lime. Generally, it can be configured according to 1:1.

After dissociating the hydroxide ions, it can be disinfected. Moreover, it must be used now, otherwise the slaked lime will be used. It absorbs carbon dioxide from the air and turns into calcium carbonate, which loses its disinfection effect.

Lime can't be bought too much at one time to prevent it from failing after a long time.

After the configuration, wait until the pigs are out of the empty circle, brush the walls, floors, corners and other dead corners of the pig house with 20% lime milk to be applied in place, and use 1 liter 10% lime milk brush per square meter of the wall of the house. - 3 times is appropriate.

Some farmers directly scatter the slaked lime powder on the ground in the enclosure. This method is wrong. It is easy to burn the skin and hoof of the pig. Moreover, after the pig eats the food falling on the ground, it is easy to burn and digest. Road and mouth.

In addition, 20% of the milk can be used to soak the straw bag, etc., and it can be placed at the entrance of the pig farm. The person entering and exiting can step on the sole to prevent the disease and bacteria from causing disease.

It should also be noted that do not directly sprinkle the lime or slaked lime directly on the door and the road. It is not only ineffective, but also easily causes the lime powder to fly and induce inflammation of the respiratory tract.
