GEMPLER’S Farm Digestant eliminates warm weather odors and liquefies manure naturally

Manure pits and lagoons vary in design and construction, but they all have one thing in common—they’re designed to hold large volumes of manure until it’s removed. Unfortunately, in time, the manure will emit foul, and sometimes toxic gases and will form an ugly crust. As time continues, solid material settles to the bottom of the pit and forms a hard mass that requires costly special handling for removal.

The solution
GEMPLER’S Farm Digestant is a bacteria that can clean up a manure pit or lagoon by eating large amounts of waste and reproducing very quickly. By introducing large numbers of these select bacteria into your manure pit on a regular basis, the bacteria will multiply and slowly convert the entire pit into a gigantic culture of “good” bacteria.

How much FARM DIGESTANT should you use?
First determine pit volume: (length of pit x width of pit x depth of pit = volume in cubic feet.) Then multiply this volume by the factor of 7.5 gallons/cubic foot to determine gallonage. Treatment is based on gallonage as illustrated below. NOTE: Neglected pits with large quantities of accumulated solids and/or pits that have chlorine bleach or other disinfectants regularly flushed into them will require heavier treatment programs. Most detergents and cleaners, though, will not affect GEMPLER’S Farm Digestant.

Unlike liquid digestants, ours is in spore form. This means more power per pound, lower shipping costs and longer shelf life as long as it is kept dry. Before being introduced to the pit, the spores must be activated by mixing in a bucket of warm water and let it sit for 20 minutes.

GEMPLER’S Farm Digestant is 100% Salmonella free, and, it’s accepted by the USDA for use in federally inspected meat and poultry plants. Like all GEMPLER’S® products, we guarantee your satisfaction with our Digestant. USA made.
