Products of the dairy industry under unhygienic or unsuitable conditions have increased microbial contamination. With proper sanitation procedures, the rate of bacterial colony formation (colony forming units, CFUs) greatly reduces along with effective sanitization.
Sanitation greatly reduces the quantity of contamination, ergo enhancing the quality of milk reaching the consumer. The fundamental disinfectants of the two concerned businesses are examined in the relationship to the cleaning and disinfection strategies.
Dairy Disinfectant decimates all pathogens, and cleans the same. A greater range of sterilization includes use of pesticides for killing pathogenic vectors, thereby purifying and sanitizing the tainted surfaces. The decline of microorganisms in the adjacent surroundings must be diminished to lessen microbial pollution and in this way pathogen related dairy animals’ sicknesses.
All sheet materials and tools must be expelled before sprinkling and cleaning. Unclean surfaces affect the disinfecting ability. Also, permeable surfaces are harder to disinfect than the smooth ones ergo likely to contain heavier soiling.
The disinfection procedure in dairies is mainly divided into four heads
- Housing: The reduction of microbial colonies in the immediate surroundings diminishes the opportunity for microscopic organisms to cause infections in the cows as it becomes harder to access the cows.
All beddings and tools before soaking and cleaning must be removed. The way of the surfaces will impact the adequacy of disinfection.
- The milking parlour, a high density place harbours a lot of microorganisms needing disinfection twice daily. Surfaces must be cleaned regularly with a suitable dairy disinfectant to avoid pathogen multiplication. Similarly to the milking parlour, the milking machine also needs regular disinfection.
- Calf pneumonia and calf scours cost these business huge immense losses. The greatest losses occur when calves are kept in close confinement, increasing the transmission of the causative agents of Neonatal Calf Diarhoea that builds up in the immediate environment. The runs can be infections (Rota infection, Crown infection), microscopic organisms ( coli, Salmonella) or parasites. All these require a broad spectrum disinfectant.
- People: Dairy farmers straightforwardly come in contact with cows and other equipments, and can be vectors for pathogen transmission. Quick action, broad spectrum and nontoxic and gentle for the skin are prerequisites.
- Milking Area: The milking machine harbours perfect microbial growing conditions making it essential for a strict disinfection protocol to be followed.
- Animals: The contagious/ infectious diseases are crucial and important to control as they form a chain of hosts. Broad spectrum disinfectants are crucial for the control of these illnesses and thusly for farmhouse productivity.
Silver Hydrogen Peroxide marketed under the trade name of Alstasan Silvox by Chemtex Speciality Limited is a universal broad spectrum biocide which acts as a dairy disinfectant for sterilization of milk and equipment.
