ABF ACTIVATED BARN FRESH POULTRY LITTER AMMONIA CONTROL

Safe, cost effective poultry litter management.

WHAT IS ABF ACTIVATED BARN FRESH POULTRY LITTER AMMONIA CONTROL?

Activated Barn Fresh is an Organic-appropriate poultry litter acidifier that works just as well in conventional broiler barns. 

Activated Barn Fresh uses a patent-pending formula of Citric Acid and Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth to reduce pH and
Ammonia. While other acidifiers are hard on equipment and burn off quickly,

            Activated Barn Fresh: 

·        can be applied up to five days prior to chick placement

·        is easier on skin, clothing, and equipment than traditional acidifiers

·        improves litter condition as diatomaceous earth accumulates

·     works even better when litter is windrowed

·      can be applied with birds in the barn

·      is listed with OMRI, so is effective for both organic and conventional broiler flocks
