Swine (Pigs/Hogs)


  1. If your facility has a misting/fogging system in place for cooling, Activated EM•1® can be added into the water at a ratio of 1 part AEM•1® per 1,000 gallons of water. For best results, run the solution on a timer that cycles for 10 seconds every hour when the building is open (summer) and 10 seconds every 30 minutes when the building is closed (winter).
  2. Prior to running the AEM•1®, flush the lines to clean out any gunk as nozzles may plug.

EM•1® Microbial Inoculant is a concentrate that can be used directly from the container or multiplied in volume through a fermentation process we call "activation." Activated EM•1® application rates are the same as EM•1®–there is no difference in efficiancy. However, once EM•1® is activated, there is a dramatic reduction in shelf life of the product. (It should be used up within 30-45 days after the drop in pH for optimal microbial activity.)
