Cover crops are tools to keep the soil in place, bolster soil health, improve water quality and reduce pollution from agricultural activities.

  • They include cereals, brassicas, legumes and other broadleaf species, and can be annual or perennial plants. Cover crops can be adapted to fit almost any production system.
  • Popular cover crops include cereal rye, crimson clover and oilseed radish. Familiar small grain crops, like winter wheat and barley, can also be adapted for use as cover crops.

What is a Cover Crop?

A cover crop is a plant that is used primarily to slow erosion, improve soil health, enhance water availability, smother weeds, help control pests and diseases, increase biodiversity and bring a host of other benefits to your farm.

Cover crops have also been shown to increase crop yields, break through a plow pan, add organic matter to the soil, improve crop diversity on farms and attract pollinators. There is an increasing body of evidence that growing cover crops increases resilience in the face of erratic and increasingly intensive rainfall, as well as under drought conditions. Cover crops help when it doesn’t rain, they help when it rains, and they help when it pours!

Importance of Water-Dairy Calves

Following is an excellent and timely article from Progressive Dairyman magazine –

The award-winning magazine’s editors and contributors provide compelling features, helpful articles, insightful news analysis, and entertaining commentary about the people, practices and topics related to a dairy lifestyle.

Why high-quality water matters for calf success

Contributed by Ellan Dufour Published on 30 May 2018

Often overlooked, water is the most important nutrient for dairy calves. It is required for all of life’s processes including the transport, digestion and metabolism of nutrients, the elimination of waste materials and excess heat from the body, and the maintenance of a proper fluid-ion balance in the body.

The role of water in young calves

Offering calves free-choice water is critical for stimulating rumen development, improving grain fermentation and promoting starter intake. The quality of water offered can play a major role in calf health and nutrient utilization.

Rumen development: Unlike milk and milk replacer, water consumed by young calves is transported to the rumen rather than the abomasum. Water in the rumen provides a medium for ruminal bacteria to ferment starter feed, grain and hay. Rumen development is slowed in the absence of water.

Improved growth: Calves offered free-choice water in addition to their liquid diet are shown to gain weight faster and consume dry feed quicker than calves only receiving water through their milk or milk replacer.

Calf health: Calves are about 70 to 75 percent water by bodyweight and need to consume fresh water in order to maintain normal cellular functions. Dehydration can lead to weakness, severe weight loss and even death. Signs of dehydration include sunken eyes, dry mouth and nose, tacky gums, depressed demeanor, irregular pulse and cold legs and ears.

How much and when?

  • Pre-weaning: On average, calves consume 1 quart of water per pound of dry matter intake.
  • Post-weaning: Calves should consume 2 quarts of water per pound of dry matter intake. This ratio should extend through the heifer growing period.
  • Hot weather: Expect water consumption to increase by 33 percent or more as temperatures reach the high 70s, and anticipate it may double as temperatures pass 90ºF.

Factors affecting water quality

Offering poor-quality water to the young calf may impact water consumption and starter intake, calf health, rumen development and the value of milk replacer and electrolytes. There are many criteria involved in assessing water quality. These include organoleptic properties (odor and taste), physiochemical properties (pH, total dissolved solids [TDS], total soluble salts and hardness), presence of toxic compounds, presence of excess minerals or compounds (see Table 1), and presence of bacteria.

Hardness: Calves are very sensitive to sodium and struggle to tolerate excess sodium levels. Soft water or hard water that has passed through a water softener can have very high concentrations of sodium and should not be used to mix milk replacer or be offered as drinking water unless tested. High sodium levels can lead to neurological diseases and central nervous system derangement in young calves.

Osmolarity: In situations where total solids are high in milk or milk replacer (over 15 percent), offering high-quality water can sustain the osmotic equilibrium in a calf. High total solids can force water out of cells in an effort to find osmotic balance within the gut and can result in diarrhea and severe dehydration. Water provision is especially important for calves fed an accelerated milk replacer program to ensure proper hydration.

Bacteria: Coliform bacteria like E. Coli and salmonella may be present in poor-quality water or water contaminated by feces and can quickly and exponentially increase to dangerous levels in a calf if consumed. In both cases, calves may suffer from severe dehydration and diarrhea. Salmonella may also result in pneumonia and septicemia in infected animals. Water with high iron content is at an increased risk of salmonella contamination.

Minerals: Calves are more sensitive to elevated mineral levels than adult cattle, making excessive mineral concentrations in drinking water a particular concern. Upper concentrations and maximum tolerable concentrations of minerals for dairy cattle are shown in Table 1 (below). Minerals of particular concern when in high concentrations include cobalt, copper, iron, hydrogen sulfide, manganese and sulfur.

Take-home messages

  • Ensure calves are consistently provided with clean, fresh, and readily available water.
  • Keep water buckets clean and free of contamination from starter feed and feces.
  • Know the least expensive and most efficient method available to modify mineral and microbial concentration of water offered to calves.
  • Check your water quality frequently. At minimum, water fed to calves should be tested annually.

A Tribute to Dairy Farmers

Comments Off on A Tribute to Dairy Farmers
April 23  |  Dairy, Editorial, Farm, farmers, farms, Opinion  |   Webmaster

This page is dedicated to Dairy Farmers as a tribute and acknowledgement for their hard work, dedication, and care.  We admire and respect all farm operators, especially family operations which take pride in providing us all with safe, nutritional food.

While Puroxi Pure Water Global has expanded its reach with new products, systems, throughout international markets, we will always have a special fondness for farm operators, particularly dairy farmers.  This hardy savvy group was the first to see the benefits of our product and appreciate the results.

Dairy farmers work hard every day to bring you and your family fresh, great tasting, wholesome milk products.  Almost all dairies are family-owned, and as active members of their communities, farm families take pride in feeding our country and maintaining natural resources.  That means preserving the land where they live and work, protecting the air and water they share with neighbors, and providing the best care for their cows—the lifeblood of their business.

Climate Change | Water Shortage | Agriculture

Comments Off on Climate Change | Water Shortage | Agriculture
December 29  |  climate change, crops, Editorial, Farm, global warming, News, Opinion, Research, safe drinking water, water conservation, water preservation  |   Webmaster

While the pundits and partisan experts continue to argue over the validity of global warming, there is little doubt that climate change is a reality.  The rapidly increasing changes in our climate are impacting our water supply.

Scientists at the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK) have calculated how much of this essential resource the world risks losing to the effects of climate change.  Droughts will become more widespread and wildfires are expected to get bigger, longer and smokier by 2050. The growing world population and its increase in water consumption are also straining fresh water resources.  Water sources are melting and drying out.   

37 nations already make do with the bare minimum in water resources, according to experts at the World Resources Institute (WRI), a co-author of the Aqueduct Water Risk Atlas.  Massive investments in efficient water management are necessary to counter the effects of water scarcity.

 Agriculture is the world’s largest consumer of water

In times of rising food prices, the agricultural sector has become more interesting for investors. Asian companies, particularly in China, as well as their European counterparts are buying up large swaths of land in Africa to grow food products. They, too, have a vested interest in good harvests and are keen on investment in any aspect of agriculture that offers a significant opportunity to reduce its demand for water. However, technical solutions to save water in agriculture will play only a small role due to the high costs.

Changes in the world’s agriculture and eating habits need to be re-examined

Hunger follows on the heels of water scarcity

Agriculture must change in order to counter dwindling water resources. Climate researchers warn of an increased risk of hunger, in particular in poorer countries, with farmers trying to adapt to cycles of recurring drought and extreme, torrential rains.  One way to counter these extremes is through organic farming, which strengthens the capacity of the soil to absorb water, to enrich it and later deliver it again to the plants.

Organic farming could also limit the spread of diseases and pests without farmers having to resort to pesticides.  Crop rotation and diversity would make it more difficult for diseases and crop destroyers to infest cultivated areas.  This was common practice for many generations before industrial farming began.

In addition, consumers will have to alter their habits in ways that include eating less meat and seeking out crops more attuned to local conditions.  In dry regions of the world, farmers could plant the cereal crop millet, which needs significantly less water than corn.

Another climate-friendly measure: growers and consumers should be located closer to one another to decrease theamount of shipments and transports.

Such changes would help feed a constantly growing global population.  Even today, the world produces enough food for 14 billion people.

We don’t need to produce more foodwhat we need is better quality and more diversity.

Water – “Nature’s Medicine”

Comments Off on Water – “Nature’s Medicine”
November 3  |  climate change, crops, Editorial, Farm, Latest News, Opinion, safe drinking water, water conservation, water preservation, water stewardship  |   Webmaster

Safe drinking water is essential to humans and other lifeforms even though it provides no calories or organic nutrients.

80% of all illness in the developing world comes from waterborne diseases.

So, the most valuable medicine we could provide is a simple, clean glass of water.

Our SolarBag can help. It offers households anywhere in the world, the world’s best detoxification and disinfection solution for pennies a day.

 Access to safe drinking water has improved over the last decades in almost every part of the world, but approximately one billion people still lack access to safe water and over 2.5 billion lack access to adequate sanitation.[1]

Imprtance of Water

There is a clear correlation between access to safe water and GDP per capita.[2] However, some observers have estimated that by 2025 more than half of the world population will be facing water-based vulnerability.[3] A report, issued in November 2009, suggests that by 2030, in some developing regions of the world, water demand will exceed supply by 50%.[4] Approximately 70% of the fresh water used by humans goes to agriculture.[5]

Letter to the Dairy Industry

Comments Off on Letter to the Dairy Industry
August 27  |  Dairy, Editorial, Latest News, Newsletters, Nutrition, safe drinking water  |   Webmaster

Dairy farms are always busy overcoming challenges in their operations.  This year’s severe drought has dramatically emphasized the value and necessity of clean, safe water.

Our company’s focus is the quality of water and how it can contribute to better health in all animals and humans in agriculture, residential and municipal applications. Our product has been on the market for 15 years and thousands of farms now use our product on an ongoing basis with major success.

Over the past few years I have watched the Dairy Industry go through some trying times. Expenses of all kinds keep increasing, while milk prices are not. A fair margin of profit on a consistent basis for dairy farms doesn’t seem to matter to legislators and consumers.

In light of this and other ongoing challenges, what we do is help dairymen with their water. There are many reasons that water is very important to them. When you think of the fact that milk is 85% to 90% water and a milking dairy cow drinks an average of 25-30 gallons a day, how important is the water?  In fact, dairy cows actually drink more water than eat food.  It is only fair to note that many parts of the dairy play an important role to the success for those hard working owners:  feed/THM’s  (with micro toxins taken into consideration), the environment, bedding, ventilation, hoof health, fly control, stray voltage, mastitis, SCC,  just to name a few.  All of these play a big part in a dairy cow’s health and the profit & survival of the dairy operation. The list is more comprehensive than mentioned here, however, you get the point.  The belief we have, is that water is the most important for a dairy cow; without water there is just no farm. Water is the largest consumed item on a farm. Bacteria and organic matter build up and multiply very quickly.  Bacteria build slime which coats the plumbing and attaches and multiply very fast. Parasites feed on this slime and when ingested they can become a hindrance in the health of your cow.  We like to remind people that bacteria never take vacations!  They are always ready to take advantage of a suitable, vulnerable environment.

Our system is very simple.  We always start with a water analysis, and we do this by using an independent lab.  This process gives the Dairy Farmer peace of mind about the validity of an unbiased report.  Our Dealers come to the location, take the sample and either drop it off or send it to the lab.  The water report analysis is usually ready in 5 business days. Water reports are a critical first step. The evaluation of the report is then analysed at no charge to the Dairy.  After analysis, we review the specific issues may be affecting the quality and safety of their water. This is a critical time, since we are honest with the Dairy Owner and they need to be honest with us.  I personally have signed a non- disclosure agreement with customers; their business is their business and no one else’s.  We take our responsibility and trusting relationships very seriously.

With all the knowledge shared by both of us, we can do a more effective job for the dairy. We like to be considered as part of their team. Every dairy has a Veterinarian and a Nutritionist; these two professionals are very important to their success. We like to be considered as their water professional; the person taking care of another important component on their farm.   In fact, I am a certified water technician. 

We then develop a customized protocol for the farmer with a firm quotation.  This is based on the volume of water they use, the type of issues they have, and the amount of equipment that they need.

We also like to help in 3 ways:

  1. To clean your water and help with the process of having clean, clear and nutritional water.
  2. To clean and protect your plumbing.
  3. To help with the overall health of your animals.

With professionals like a Veterinarian, Water Physiologist, Nutritionist, Filtration Experts and Farmers as part of our team, there is a lot more to Oxy Blast than meets the eye. We do know that our customers see great results and we actually have a guarantee system that protects the customer from failing if we did not do our job. There is a protocol they have to follow after the water report in order to stay on track. 

You can just clean your water with the many different products available, however, when you clean it with the additional intention of addressing health concerns, it changes the value of what you are buying. Oxy Blast has a base of high quality Hydrogen Peroxide along with some stabilizing and proprietary ingredients, so it is not Hydrogen Peroxide as it is sometimes called, it’s Oxy Blast.  The base product has improved over the years, to address new technology as it comes along. This keeps the product at the forefront of industry dynamics and its effectiveness and ahead of our competition.   

Farms are also always looking for ways to solve their calve problems.  Many farmers add Oxy Blast to the milk replacer as it helps with scours and the immune system. One thing I would like to mention is that we cannot promise a milk increase to every farm, because it depends on many factors, as you know.  If one factor is not right, the other factor can be simply a band-aid solution against the negative results of that factor. However, we have seen a milk increase after a period of time on many farms. The average has been anywhere from 2 to 5 lbs.  We would like to guarantee a milk increase or even elimination of all the farmer’s problems including better milk prices. However, all we can focus on is the principle of cleaner, safer water, and better water for consumption and hopefully all of the rest falls into place.  We invite you all to watch our short 3 minute movie, which explains who we are and what we do. Please go to http://www.oxyblast.org/movie and give us a call if we can help.

Thanks for your interest.

It’s all about the Drought!

Comments Off on It’s all about the Drought!
August 26  |  crops, Dairy, Editorial, Farm, Latest News, Livestock, Newsletters, Opinion  |   Webmaster

Unless we’ve been in a cave or in outer space for the past few weeks, we are all aware of the severe drought that has been plaguing the Midwest.  Actually, you can see its effects from space:

 http://www.treehugger.com/sustainable-agriculture/us-drought-so-bad-nasa-can-see-it-space.html

This is the worst drought since 1988 and may go on record for causing the worst economic and social effects since the infamous 1930s “Dustbowl”.  It may take years to recover as a nation, but many small & medium size farms may not survive it.

The USDA is issuing weekly updates …

http://blogs.usda.gov/2012/08/24/agricultural-weather-and-drought-update-%e2%80%93-82412/

http://www.usda.gov/wps/portal/usda/usdahome?navid=DISASTER_ASSISTANCE

http://droughtmonitor.unl.edu/

It’s estimated that this current drought is affecting over 68% of farmland and over 80% of essential crops in those areas, especially corn, hay, soya beans, etc.  And the effects will be felt across the nation with rising food prices and a strained federal budget to try and offset some of the losses.  Thank God for crop insurance!  Payouts from this year’s drought are expected to set record levels.  Unfortunately, livestock producers and dairy farmers have no such safety net.  Various government levels have tried to open up reserve land for grazing, water-sharing programs, meat buying programs, etc. but it is a drop in the bucket.  Clean water and grazing lands are becoming scarce and feed corn and hay have doubled in price since 2010.

While the debate rages on about whether global warming is the cause or whether this is just one of earth’s cycles of change and the while the policy makers on Capitol Hill bicker about their partisan lobby interests, farmers and ranchers struggle to survive, waiting for the much anticipated Farm Bill to finally become law.  It may be too late or not enough for some.   These dedicated, hearty individuals are used to struggle and adversity and being dependent on Mother Nature.   But they don’t like to depend on any level government.  Emergency drought legislation would surely help right now.

Meanwhile, more and more farmers and ranchers are taking to the internet and social media to stay connected, updated, and to network with others, sharing stories, ideas, and recommendations.  In fact, they have their own hashtag on Twitter: #drought12.

http://www.npr.org/blogs/thesalt/2012/08/24/159999270/farmers-waiting-out-the-drought-tune-into-twitter

Yes, this has been and will continue to be a very tough year for those dear folks.  Next to oxygen and water, they are responsible for the most important ingredient for our life – FOOD!  We are grateful for their dedication, hard work and pioneer spirit and are proud to be a part of their operations.

Let’s all offer them whatever support we can and pray for them.

Water Poultry and Oxy Blast

Comments Off on Water Poultry and Oxy Blast

Water, Poultry, and Oxy Blast

 

Water is a critical nutrient that receives little attention until a problem arises. Not only should producers make an effort to provide water in adequate quantity, they should also know what is in the water that will be flowing through the water lines to be used in evaporative cooling systems and consumed by the birds.

 

Water Functions

Water is needed for bird consumption, reducing air temperature (including evaporative cooling pad and fogging systems) and facility sanitation. Broilers consume approximately 1.6 to 2.0 times as much water as feed on a weight basis. Water is a critical nutrient in bird metabolism and nutrition. From a physiology perspective, water consumed by the bird is used for nutrient transportation, enzymatic and chemical reactions in the body, body temperature regulation and lubrication of joints and organs.

There is a strong relationship between feed and water consumption, therefore, water can be used to monitor flock performance.

Environmental temperature/heat stress: Birds consume more water as temperature increases. One of the main ways birds regulate body temperature is by evaporating water through the respiratory system during panting. As birds pant, water is lost and needs to be replaced in order to maintain body-water balance. Water consumption can double and even triple during periods of heat stress. Water consumption in broilers increases approximately seven per cent for each degree Fahrenheit increase in temperature.

The correlation of water consumption with feed intake and many environmental factors indicate its importance in bird metabolism and body function. Efforts should be made in all poultry operations to ensure that adequate and unlimited access to water is provided. Failure to do so will result in reduced feed intake, poor egg production, reduced growth and reduced feed efficiency.

Water quality should be of concern to all poultry operations. Poor water quality may interfere with digestion and subsequent bird performance. The effectiveness of vaccines and medications administered through the water lines could be reduced when water quality is poor. Water contaminants could create equipment problems that would either restrict the amount of water available for consumption or the effectiveness of the evaporative cooling and fogging systems. Reduced water consumption or cooling capacity may have detrimental effects on both growth and reproduction. Poor water quality could also result in leaky water nipples inside the house, which will wet litter and lead to increased ammonia production. Poor litter quality and high ammonia can result in reduced performance and livability.


How can Oxy Blast help?

Please read on …

While our focus here is on poultry, remember that using a custom developed Oxy Blast protocol will deliver similar results with ALL species of livestock.  Many of you have seen very satisfying results already.

Using Oxy Blast products along with a customized protocol will result in:

 cleaner water, nipples not plugging up, lower death loss, better feed conversion, better weight gains, less leg and tendon problems, drier litter, increased water consumption, lowered medication cost, lower antibiotic use, improved daily gains, and a natural de-worming effect.

 And it all begins with an independent water report and analysis by our panel of experts!

The poultry industry in India, broiler chickens in particular, is experiencing a very stressful time.

We are getting reports of 50-60% mortality rates on some major farms due to the severity of hot weather!  The birds are getting over-heated, dehydrated, distressed, unable to feed efficiently, and are more prone to disease and infection.  Soaring temperatures, increase in disease & infestation, lack of adequate fresh water, higher costs for power & feed, all combine to create the “PERFECT STORM” for lower production and increased costs. Despite this, demand continues to increase 10-20% annually

As you will read in the attached news article, overall production is down by almost 50% and is still increasing, despite increased costs.  The farm operators cannot keep up and many are facing collapse.  It may take 4 months or more to recover. 

We have shared our success story with you already, but here are the latest details documented by our Dealer.

                                                     Industry average               Oxy Blast farm

  • average broiler weight                       0.7 kg                1.7 kg
  • mortality rate                                     50% +                 0. 5%
  • medication                                          $45/day             $15/day (OB)
  • increase in production                        -50%                +100%

Healthier birds, more than double the weight gain = double the sales & profits, with almost zero death loss, and still saving $30/day on antibiotics.  FANTASTIC!

If we can do it here, we can do it anywhere.  If we can do it with poultry, we can do it with dairy cows, beef cattle, sheep, goats, horses, etc., etc.

– Get the water report & analysis – Follow the recommended protocol

– Gaining happy, life-long customers, one at a time

Oxy Blast works!
