Vulkamin® is a naturally antiseptic bedding powder and is rapidly becoming the preferred cubicle bedding powder used in animal husbandry. In both cubicles and loose housing systems, the beneficial properties of Vulkamin® are quickly noticed.

  • Fast-drying capacity
  • Disinfectant to prevent cross-contamination and infection
  • Improves and maintains the hygiene of the bedding
  • Kill time less than 15 minutes
  • pH rises by 2 points in 10 minutes
  • Minimal loss of nitrogen
  • Increases mineral content in forage
  • Vulkamin® is silky soft and kind to cows’ teats through its non-abrasive structure.
  • Kind to human eyes and hands, it can be applied throughout the year

Microbes cannot tolerate fast changes in pH, giving Vulkamin its disinfectant effect.

The benefits of Vulkamin® go far further in enriching the soil with nutrients, trace elements, and other useful elements in a well-balanced proportion which is fundamental to soil fertility and healthy balanced plant nutrition. Contributing to farm sustainability by reducing fertiliser costs.

It provides a rich source of soluble silicic acid, which is directly absorbable for plants and strengthens their resistance to fungal disease and other harmful organisms – the use of chemical-synthetic fungicides can thus be reduced.

  • Activates available reserves of phosphates in the soil by adding silicic acid
  • Balances the loss of calcium and stabilises a favourable pH level
  • Increases the quantity of available sodium, which has the same regulating effect as potassium in the water balance of plants and activation of enzymes – the quantity of potassium needed by plants will thus be reduced and crop yields will be increased
  • Potassium also contributes to giving grazing animals a healthy diet
  • Dissolves gradually, providing nutrients and trace elements evenly over a long period of time – the result is a mild effect and a long-lasting improvement of available nutritive elements in the soil
  • Erosion is reduced to a minimum
  • Improves conditions for micro-organisms living in the soil, especially for nitrogen-binding bacteria
  • Using Vulkamin® is the best way of producing fertile soils over a long period of time

Benefits

  • Antiseptic bedding powder.
  • Naturally antiseptic.
  • Quickly raises pH Absorbant.

  • Vulkamin® is also available as granules to be spread as a fertiliser

Application

Vulkamin is usually sprinkled by hand in combination with sawdust or straw.
  • Cubicles: Spread a thin layer daily (50-100g) where the bedding comes into contact with the udders and on damp areas.
  • Critical care areas: Calving boxes and calf pens, lambing sheds, and pens: spread all over the floor daily at approximately 50g per m2.
  • Stables: Spread all over the stable floor daily at approximately 50g per m2.
