In the quest for safer and more sustainable animal farming practices, innovative technologies are being explored. Mysoter® 222nm far-UVC disinfection devices can be used, which shows promise in enhancing animal farming safety and reducing the reliance on antibiotics.
Improved Microbial Control:
222nm far-UVC light has been found to effectively inactivate bacteria and viruses, including antibiotic-resistant strains. By implementing 222nm far-UVC disinfection in animal farming environments, the spread of harmful microorganisms can be curbed, reducing the risk of infectious diseases among livestock.
Reduction in Antibiotic Usage:
Excessive antibiotic use in animal farming contributes to the global concern of antibiotic resistance. By incorporating 222nm far-UVC disinfection, farmers can potentially decrease the reliance on antibiotics for disease prevention and treatment. The targeted inactivation of pathogens through far-UVC light can help mitigate the need for antibiotics, promoting responsible and sustainable farming practices.
Enhanced Food Safety:
Contaminated animal products pose risks to human health. 222nm far-UVC disinfection can play a crucial role in reducing microbial contamination levels in meat and other animal-derived food products. By implementing far-UVC technology in processing areas and packaging lines, potential foodborne pathogens can be effectively targeted, ensuring safer and higher quality food for consumers.
Reducing antibiotic usage in animal farming has positive environmental implications. Widespread adoption of 222nm far-UVC disinfection may contribute to the reduction of antibiotic residues in animal waste, minimizing their impact on ecosystems and water sources.
Worker Safety and Animal Welfare:
222nm far-UVC disinfection technology offers a safer working environment for farm personnel. Compared to traditional UV disinfection methods, far-UVC light at 222nm is less harmful to human skin and eyes, allowing for its safe use in animal farming settings. Additionally, by reducing the incidence of diseases among livestock, animal welfare can be enhanced, promoting healthier and more ethically sound farming practices.
