ABF ACTIVATED BARN FRESH POULTRY LITTER AMMONIA CONTROL

Safe, cost effective poultry litter management.

WHAT IS ABF ACTIVATED BARN FRESH POULTRY LITTER AMMONIA CONTROL?

ABF Activated Barn Fresh Poultry Litter Ammonia Control is an effective poultry litter management tool. It is made from a naturally occurring blend of food grade diatomaceous earth with calcium montmorillonite which absorbs liquid and suppresses odor found in liquid. This unique blend of materials contains many minerals with powerful adsorption capabilities. This adsorption power is due to the material’s ability to attract and bind positive and negative charged ions (cationic exchange capacity). ABF Activated Barn Fresh Poultry Litter Ammonia Control also contains natural citric acid for added protection against ammonia.

ABF can be used in all types of poultry operations.
