Transforming Poultry Farming
with SANI-99™ for AGRI
in KZN Province, South Africa

In a groundbreaking collaboration, Scientific Sanitation Solutions (SSS) and a premier poultry group in the KZN Province of South Africa embarked on a journey to redefine standards in poultry health and farm efficiency. This ambitious project was designed to implement state-of-the-art water treatment and disinfection protocols using SANI-99™ for AGRI. The aim was to significantly enhance poultry health, optimise feed utilisation, and foster improved growth conditions for the livestock. Spanning an extensive trial involving 370,000 chickens, this initiative marked a progressive leap in poultry farming methodologies, setting a precedent for future agricultural practices.

The Challenge

The project was founded on the mission to revolutionise the efficiency of poultry farming by addressing multiple critical aspects of farm operation and animal welfare. At the heart of these efforts was the adoption of SANI-99™ for AGRI, an innovative water treatment solution designed to eradicate harmful pathogens and create a safer, more hygienic environment for poultry. A pivotal aspect of the strategy was adjusting the water's pH level to 3.8, a scientifically determined optimal condition for the health and development of poultry.

The Introduction of SANI AMANZI™

This precise calibration was aimed at not only bolstering the physical health of the chickens but also enhancing feed conversion efficiency—a cornerstone of sustainable agriculture. Moreover, the initiative strived to reduce mortality rates significantly, a move that would inherently boost productivity and profitability. Through these meticulously planned objectives, the partnership sought to establish new benchmarks in poultry farming, showcasing a deep commitment to innovation, sustainability, ethical animal treatment, and achieving outstanding economic outcomes.

Implementation & Success

The deployment of SANI-99™ for AGRI within the farm’s operational system was seamlessly executed, aligning perfectly with the farm’s pre-existing labour practices. A detailed 360° biosecurity protocol was meticulously enforced, incorporating thorough disinfection routines and ongoing monitoring of conditions within the poultry houses. This ensured the maintenance of an optimal growth environment, crucial for the health and productivity of the poultry.

The implementation of this rigorous strategy brought about remarkable outcomes, significantly enhancing various performance indicators:

Enhanced Chicken Health and Growth: The initiative led to a notable increase in the chickens’ live weight by 3.4% and improved the average cull mass by 7.3%, evidencing a marked improvement in the health and robustness of the poultry.

Improved Efficiency: Notably, the Feed Conversion Rate saw an uplift of 2.1%, indicating a leap in feed efficiency. Simultaneously, the Average Daily Gain experienced a surge by 5.39%, illustrating faster growth rates among the chickens.

Reduced Mortality: Mortality rates dipped by 0.77%, a significant reduction that contributed to increased yields and overall farm productivity.

 

Economic Benefits: The financial outcomes were equally impressive, with staggering savings and a substantial reduction in feed usage by 20,614 kg. These savings significantly reduced the operational costs, enhancing the farm’s economic
standing.

Performance Evaluation Factor: The Performance Evaluation Factor (PEF) saw an 8.6% increase, signalling a boost in operational efficiency and enhancing the farm’s competitive edge in the market. 

The success of the SANI-99™ for AGRI integration not only achieved its immediate objectives but also set a precedent for the poultry farming industry, demonstrating the tangible benefits of incorporating advanced biosecurity measures and sustainable farming practices.

Summary

The project faced some hurdles, notably in achieving the precise pH levels required in a few poultry houses, which were swiftly addressed. The overwhelming success in the vast majority of houses highlighted the robustness and potential of the protocols for wider application. This groundbreaking effort underscored the effectiveness of SANI-99™ for AGRI and the 360° biosecurity protocol as transformative elements in modern poultry farming. With plans to extend the trial to over 700,000 broilers, there's a clear path forward for further improvements in farming outcomes. Additionally, ongoing efforts in the hatchery sector aim to bolster defences against pathogens affecting egg production and quality, further solidifying SANI-99™ for AGRI's importance in advancing poultry farm biosecurity and sustainability.
