Since the company was founded more than 40 years ago, Hotsy’s cleaning products have been put to work in just about every industry you can think of—and agriculture is no exception. Now, Hotsy has introduced a new product designed to help farmers keep hog enclosures clean, hygienic and profitable.
It’s called the Hog Manure Treatment Program (HMTP), and it offers farmers a number of important benefits.
HMTP works by chemically influencing the aerobic digestion of manure, slowing the process and minimizing the amount of methane, ammonia and hydrogen sulfide gasses that are released as byproducts. This can improve hog health and hygiene by preventing the buildup of gaseous ammonia and hydrogen sulfide from irritating their skin, eyes and respiratory systems.
By slowing the digestion process, HMTP also causes manure to retain more nitrogen, thereby increasing its value as a fertilizer.
In addition to reducing odors and off-gassing, HMTP also accelerates the breakdown of solid manure, increasing the volume of slurry and making it easier to clean hog enclosures. This can also reduce the amount of flies in hog enclosures by destroying their egg-laying habitat.
HMTP reduces hazardous gas buildup, eases the manure removal process and improves hog hygiene. By cleaning enclosures with HMTP, farmers can ultimately save money by preventing the spread of infectious diseases that compromise the health of their livestock. HMTP is available in both 55 gallon drums and large 275 gallon totes. To learn more about this great new product from Hotsy, you can check out the complete documentation on HMTP here.
