EM-1 an excellent product! January 29, 2016
Reviewer: Steven Johnson from Anchor Point, AK United States  
This is my 2nd winter using EM-1 on my live beds, in the chicken coop and hog pens. It sustains an Ecco- friendly composting, providing an odor free, bio- security for my livestock. Here in Alaska most people do not sustain there herds and flocks through the winter, due primarily to Mother Nature. With proper lighting and EM-1 hi farm year round with early litters and eggs 365 days a year. The 18 inch live beds provide a healthy blanket of safe warm bedding for my hogs, I no longer have nest in my layer coops opting for the hens to build their own nesting mounds.. I have raised livestock without EM-1 but never again! It pays for itself, over and over, the garden ready compost , wow, I have a waiting list.

Thank you Teraganix
