Zorbifresh™ Active has been tested using the industry standard laboratory efficacy evaluation test.
- Zorbifresh™ Active is 100% effective against Staph aureus and E. coli after 1 hour exposure.
- Organic soiling of the bedding reduced the efficacy of Zorbifresh™ Active after 1 hour exposure but 100% kill was achieved after 24 hours exposure.
Zorbifresh™ Active kills bacteria such as Staph aureus and E. coli and other gram negative and gram positive bacteria. Not only does Zorbifresh™ Active absorb up to 100% of its weight in moisture, the porosity of it also allows the bedding to dry out.
The two major diseases leading to calf mortality are scours and pneumonia. Pneumonia is a respiratory disease, so reducing ammonia in the air surrounding calves is a part of lessening the risk associated with calf housing.
