Cleaning and disinfecting calf accommodation in six steps
A hygienic work approach prevents problems and eventually saves time. Time the livestock farmer spends cleaning and disinfecting pens and equipment is repaid with problem-free rearing. All-round the best outcome!
remove all loose parts such as drinking buckets and feed basins
clean the pen as far as possible, removing straw and any manure
apply foam cleaner to the individual pen or igloo. Follow the instructions for the standing time and concentration
clean the pen with a high-pressure cleaner. The foam will help remove any stubborn dirt
leave the pens and equipment to dry before disinfecting
disinfect the equipment with a product effective on viruses and bacteria (such as cryptosporidiosis and coccidiosis). Following disinfection, rinse out buckets and feed basins.
