Staldren helps control diseases

Staldren is the latest disinfection product to hit the Northern Ireland market place, although it has been around for over 20 years.

Genesis Bedding have secured an agreement to import, what is considered to be one of the best and most animal friendly products on the European marketplace.

Staldren is a Danish disinfection product that is composed of Calcium Carbonate (Lime), Iron Oxide, Sodium Chloride (Salt), Chlormaine T and Pine Oil. It is fresh smelling and is unique among it’s competitors in that it is pH Neutral.

In fact, if ingested by the animal, it will actually help improve the animal’s digestive functions, particularly scarring and diarrhoea.

It is effective in the following bacteria: E-Coli, Aspergillus niger, Clostridium perfingens, Streptococcus uberis, Salmonella, Staphylococcus aureus, Streptolococcus suis, Campylobacter, Klebsiella Pneumoniae

Dosage would be in around 50 - 100 grams per square metre. At the start when treating infection it should be used every day, however, once under control twice to three times per week is all that’s needed.

Staldren will also reduce smell in the animal housing as it binds ammonia and absorbs damp and moisture. Staldren will also help with dermatitis in feet by using it as dry foot bath.

On young stock such as calves, lambs and piglets, sprinkle it all through the pen to keep on top of disease control and help eliminate the above infections. Again, as it’s totally pH neutral, unlike many of it’s competitors, it will actually benefit the animal if it’s ingested.

It is phosphate free and pH neutral which means it will not dry out the animal’s skin which would lead to more abrasions and cuts and more infections and can be handled by humans on their hands with out fear of skin irritations which means no gloves!

Staldren will be available for customers to come and see for themselves at the Winter Fair, Kings Hall Belfast on the Genesis Distribution stand on Thursday 11th December. Stop and say hello.

Staldren is available in 25KG bags with 40 bags per pallet and can be purchased at Genesis Bedding. For pricing or any further information please contact Stephen 07876 452058 or Andrew (North West) 07712 638715.
