It is often difficult to know exactly what type and strain of pathogen will affect your farm next, how severe the infection will be and whether the pathogen will be resistant to the chemical treatment. Thus, pathogens have a negative economic impact during all stages of animal production. This keeps producers on their toes in terms of managing and implementing biosecurity programs, a key component of which is disinfectants.

  1. Pathogenic microbes are becoming increasingly more resistant to chemical disinfectants, either via the spores or coatings providing more resistant to the active compound in the disinfectant, or due mutations in the genetic elements of the microbes (Russell, 1999).
  2. Bacteria within the same genus and species vary in susceptibility to commonly used disinfectants, therefore what works for one will not necessarily work for the other (Moustafa Gehan et al., 2009).
  3. Disinfectants with similar but not identical chemical formula will have different degrees of efficacy against bacteria, fungi and viruses (Moustafa Gehan et al., 2009).
  4. Different disinfectants have different efficacies when in contact with organic matter, such as bedding, soil, feces and urine (Payne et al., 2005; McLaren et al., 2011).
  5. Lime, a common drying agent for wet areas in animal housing, can be caustic and corrosive resulting in respiratory problems for the animals and damage to equipment (Ritz, 2003).


Stalosan F works in 3 ways:


  1. Kills (not only inhibits) harmful pathogens such as viruses, bacteria and fungi
  2. Binds ammonia very effectively due to low pH value of 3.5
  3. Dries up moisture in bedding and environment
