Cobiotex is a multi-strain bacterial bedding additive which forms protective biofilms over
bedding and surfaces. These biofilms outcompete the growth of pathogenic bacteria,
including those linked to mastitis (E. coli, Staphylococcus, Streptococcus) and digital
dermatitis (Treponema, Dicholeobacter) reducing the risk of these diseases spreading.
The biologically controlled bedding environment created by Cobiotex means there is no
need for irritating bedding additives (such as lime) or invasive treatments,
and could help to reduce antibiotic use for mastitis and DD.
The bacteria in Cobiotex are commonly found on farm environments, meaning their
introduction to animal housing causes no adverse health risks to humans, animals or
downstream processes. The filler agent used is also highly absorbent, resulting in dryer beds
and less bedding usage.
It is a weekly application and positive results can be seen in as little as three weeks with cell count reductions.
Cobiotex is available in 25kg bags from EnviroSystems.
