Sal CURB® - The Antimicrobial Solution for Livestock and Poultry Feeds
Sal CURB® Liquid Antimicrobial is a blend of aqueous formaldehyde 37 percent solution and propionic acid. Sal CURB maintains Salmonella-negative status of complete feeds and feed ingredients for up to 21 days and controls mold in feeds or feed ingredients.
When considering antibiotic alternatives for livestock and poultry feed, pathogen control within the feed is essential. Producers and feed manufacturers responsible for the production of meat, milk and eggs play an important role in reducing biosecurity risks. Breaches in biosecurity can impact food safety, consumer trust and can lead to lost revenue and production.
Keeping pathogens out is the first step to an on-farm biosecurity program. An often-overlooked aspect in biosecurity plans is the role of feed and feed ingredients, which may carry certain pathogens which are detrimental to animal health or welfare. Proper HACCP-based controls should be implemented to reduce the risk of disease transmission through feed. Sal CURB is a key component of a feed biosecurity and comprehensive pathogen control platform.
