Airflow in Swine Facilities Crucial in Reducing Heat Stress

Posted by Jones-Hamilton Co. on Apr 8, 2020

Increasing temperatures in spring and summer cause sow body temperatures to rise along with them. Prior to farrowing, ideal ambient temperature for sows is 65-68°F. At the time of farrowing, the target is 72°F. Excess heat can cause stress, which can cause costly problems, including a drop in feed intake, particularly during lactation. When sows lose body weight, it can impact pig weaning weight, farrowing rate and litter size.

Posted by Jones-Hamilton Co. on Mar 10, 2020

The Importance of Cleaner, Drier Hatch Trays

Posted by Jones-Hamilton Co. on Feb 11, 2020

The ideal environment for hatching chicks is the same environment which can allow for the growth of bacteria and molds. Therefore, cleaning and disinfection programs must be a vital part of each hatchery’s standard operating procedures.  This is necessary to prevent the build-up of organic materials, decreasing the threat of microbiological contamination.  The application of a registered disinfectant is effective only after proper cleaning and preparation of surfaces has been completed.

Effective Treatments Designed to Optimize the Lifespan of Your Cool-Cell Pads

Posted by Jones-Hamilton Co. on Aug 20, 2019

What is your challenge in keeping your cool-cell pads clean?

That’s the question we asked our Facebook audience last month. “Dust and dirt” was the leading response, followed by “algae stains,” “hard water,” “iron,” and “all of the above.”

We were surprised to learn, however, that growers on many farms don’t differentiate between algae stains, mineral build-up, or dust and dirt — all they know is that they’re struggling to keep their cool-cell pads clean, and they’ll do whatever it takes to resolve those challenges.

Too often, this leads people to utilize treatment options that are ultimately ineffective at attacking the true issue at hand.
