Brookside Agra Establishes Product Protocol for Safe, Odor-free Composting of Animal Carcasses

With increasing concerns over ground water contamination, aesthetics and expenses associated with traditional burying, burning and pick-up of animal carcasses, today’s animal farmers are turning to a more acceptable, cost-effective method of carcass disposal — composting.

Turning the carcasses of poultry, swine, horses, cattle and other animals into a rich humus that can be used/sold as a fertilizer or soil amendment has become a profitable solution for many animal farmers; the downside is the strong odors, insects and varmints that can accompany carcass composting.

Brookside Agra has formulated an all-natural solution with its Advanced Bio Pro Concentrate™ and composting protocol. Advanced Bio Pro Concentrate is an innovative, all-natural proprietary liquid blend of stable, highly active microorganisms, enzymes and bio-stimulants  that degrade  ammonia ions, amines, hydrogen sulfide and mercaptans. When mixed with water and applied to animal carcasses, Advanced Bio Pro Concentrate works to increase the activity rate of both naturally occurring and bio augmented microbes to:

  • Remove 95% of odor within three days
  • Absorb odors until bacteria can digest organics
  • Reduce composting time by 30-50%
  • Reduce ammonia emission by 50% within minutes
  • Control hazardous gases
  • Help meet discharge parameters
  • Eliminate fruit fly and mosquito larvae

Advanced Bio Pro Concentrate is also safe and effective for eliminating odors and controlling insects and varmint in swine buildings, poultry houses, manure piles, pet runs, food processing areas, garbage holding areas, processing plants, barns, trailers and more.  Advanced Bio Pro Concentrate is recognized on the GRAS (Generally Recognized As Safe) list which is approved by the FDA and AAFCO.

Brookside Agra has developed an effective, simple protocol for using Advanced Bio Pro Concentrate to compost animal carcasses. A video explaining the process can be viewed online at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d2_bysyZoXY.
