Water Quality - Platypus Range
This uniquely Australian range of products contains naturally occurring microbes which benefit the aquatic environment. The microbes have been shown to be free of virulence genes, do not undergo any form of genetic manipulation and contain no chemicals, ensuring a natural approach to every situation - safe, non-toxic and residue free. Each of the microbes used in the Platypus range are grown by fermentation to GMP (Good Manufacturing Practice) Standard. All of the microbes have been selected on the basis they can be clearly defined by genus, species and genetic fingerprint. Each of the microbes selected fulfills an important role in improving water quality.
The Platypus range results from more than ten years research and development into selection of microbial strains, determination of effectiveness of strains, formulation of products, stability testing and field trials. Platypus offers a range of live microbial products designed for incorporation into a program of water management to promote a healthy aquatic environment. With other benefits applicable to waste water, such as reduction in odour, Platypus can also be used in fresh, brackish, or sea water to lower or degrade sludge and solids, reduce ammonia levels, stabilise plankton and improve water quality.
Further information on the Platypus range can be obtained by downloading the appropriate datasheet. Alternatively you can contact us via email and have a technical representative answer your enquiry.
Bacteria can enter the body by one or more of several routes. These include ingestion, inhalation, via the reproductive tract, for example at coitus or artificial insemination, from the mother to the offspring, or via skin penetration, for example due to biting insects.
Different disease-causing bacteria affect different parts of the body and this can correlate with the route of entry. For example, Pasteurella Spp, that cause pneumonia, are often inhaled, whereas Salmonella Spp. are ingested.
Let me share with you a human example to explain this concept in relation to non-immune defence mechanisms. Some years ago there was an outbreak of salmonellosis food poisoning caused by Salmonella napoli in soft, continental chocolate. The levels of S. napoli in the chocolate were such that anyone eating it would surely die of chocolate poisoning before they ever succumbed to S. napoli food poisoning!
However, on further investigation, it was found that the S. napoli were being encapsulated in very small fat globules and these protected the S. napoli from acids in the upper digestive tract. When these globules reached the small intestine they were attacked by lipases and the salmonella organisms were then released. That is, 100% of the salmonella were avoiding the effects of the stomach acid which normally killed off a large percentage of the organisms – an effect which had not been taken into account when determining the original infective dose!
Optimum bacterial growth temperature All bacteria have an optimum growth temperature, which is the temperature at which they grow and multiply the fastest. Most disease-causing (pathogenic) bacteria have evolved so that this temperature is very close to the animal’s body temperature, thereby optimising their efficiency at causing disease, so be sure to keep your animals healthy and happy!
Greetings one and all,
Both these yearlings; Ausbred Rose & Ausbred Silk (and the one for each of Premier and Easter) have all been raised on Livamol Feed Optimiser Pellet and finished on Livamol.
The Ausbred Rose filly is by Choisir and the Ausbred Silk colt is by Dalakhani.
I cannot think of another company that can provide its customers with a better example of proof!
If you would like information on the products used to raise these immaculate Yearlings visit our website @ www.iahp.com.au, you can also feel free to give us a call on (02) 9672 7944 or for our New Zealand customers call 0200 424 999.
