Treatment and Nutrition Program Dramatically Improves Health and
Mike Plager is a
successful dairyman and row crop farmer with typical well-sourced
water. Mike hadn’t used any water sanitation products on his farm
because he felt his water was adequate. Like most farmers, Mike
thought seeing bio-film in the tanks and water troughs seemed normal
considering the cows were drinking the water. However, like most
dairymen, Mike continued to have persistent issues with sick calves
Mike first tried using a Chlorine
Dioxide water sanitizer to see if that would improve his drinking
water. He started to see some improvement, but not as much as he
anticipated. Additionally, he didn’t like having to mix product and
inhaling hazardous fumes, so he stopped using it. On the
recommendation of Andy Thompson at Assist NPS, he switched to the
Assist NPS cleaner. He used AWS 1200 to clean his water lines and
then started to use AWS 5000 for better tasting water. He
immediately noticed a change in the taste of the water in the milk
house. The water tasted so good he piped the same water to his
Mike was so pleased with the Assist
NPS water products he decided to look at the next step in the Assist
NPS program — Nutrition. He began adding Assist NPS Quickstart Plus
to the milk replacer wit h each feeding of his calves at 1/4 oz. per
feeding per calf per day. The results have been astonishing. The
scours in the calve s are gone. Mike has not given his calves a shot
in 6 months, resulting in markedly improved health and milk
“My cows and calves are healthier and
producing more milk. In fact, I haven’t had to give a calf a shot in
Wins with Assist NPS's Pit Perfect
With over 20 years
in the livestock industry, Ron Meyer is skeptical of new products,
having seen so many come and go. Ron has been treating swine pits
and dairy lagoons for 15 years using his own pro ducts and bacteria.
Ron was comfortable with his program when he met Andy from Assist
NPS at a tradeshow and Andy explained the critical differences
between Ron’s products and Assist NPS’s Pit Perfect.
A few months later
Ron decided to use the Assist NPS Pit Perfect on a particularly
difficult pit. Ron was amazed — In his 15 years of treating pits he
had never seen anything work as quickly to control odor .
Additionally, Ron began to see more biological activity and methane
bubbles rising to the surface immediately.
Ron is so pleased
to now have a product that breaks down solids, reduces fly issues,
eliminates odor and improves the air quality in the barn.
Additionally, the pit is now easier to pump and the nutrients in the
manure have been stabilized by lowering the pH to improve the soil
quality for next year’s crops.
