Brookside Agra introduces advanced Bio Pro Concentrate
Brookside Agra has developed an innovative, all-natural proprietary liquid blend of stable, highly active microbial cultures, enhancers and nutrients, specifically selected to biologically degrade a variety of odors associated with agricultural and environmental conditions.

In addition to eliminating odors, the product also eradicates fats, oils, greases and other organic materials. It is recognized on the Generally Recognized as Safe (GRAS) list, which is both FDA and AAFCO approved.



By increasing the rate of activity of both naturally occurring and bio- augmented microbes, test results of the product have been shown to:

• Remove 95 percent of odor within three days

• Absorb odors until bacteria can digest organics

• Reduce composting time by 30 to 50 percent

• Reduce ammonia emission by 50 percent within minutes


• Control hazardous gases and improve animal health and life expectancy

• Help meet discharge parameters

• Eliminate fruit fly and mosquito larvae

• Prevent growth of algae in fountains, ponds and lakes

Easy to use, it is diluted with water, with recommended mixing rates based on specific application areas including manure piles, manure-handling equipment, lagoons and pits, sale barns, animal trailers and compost piles for dead animals.

Lallemand Animal Nutrition releases new Sil-All formulation
Since the purchase of the Sil-All (SA) range of forage inoculants in 2011, Lallemand Animal Nutrition’s team of forage experts have developed a new product formulation in the U.S. to best meet the needs of today’s producers.

In the U.S., SA has undergone continuous product evolution to improve efficacy as more has been discovered about forage microbiology.

A faster, more efficient fermentation means a greater preservation of nutrients in your forages and therefore greater production potential.

The addition of SA has expanded the company’s range of proven inoculants, according to the company, delivering an efficient fermentation to maximize nutrient preservation.
