Litmus Ammonia Indicators

Litmus FQI, LLC, announces the introduction of revolutionary indicators to measure average levels of ammonia in concentrated animal feeding operations (CAFOs). Litmus Ammonia Monitors (LAMS) function in a time-flexible format from 1-24 hours and provide average ammonia readings from 1-100 ppm. Each LAM has a colorimetric indicator which changes color from yellow to blue at specific rates to indicate the presence of ammonia. Use of the indicators requires no special training or expensive equipment to operate, and animals grown in lower ammonia environments are larger and healthier.

Microbial Distribution Applicator

Life Products, a division of The Vit-E-Men Co. Inc., developer and manufacturer of microbial feed additives since 1971, has received a U.S. patent for applying freeze-dried microorganisms to all livestock, poultry and aquatic feeds. Life Products’ research and development team continues perfecting the new patent-pending, microbial stabilization media and newly patented delivery technology. “These new methodologies will change the way the microbial industry conducts business with the livestock industry,” says company president Scott Watson. The patented technology uses state-of-the art communication, ensuring the customer has superior product delivery accountability. The growing recognition of profitability in using probiotics has farmers large and small highly motivated to include probiotics in their feeding programs. The new applicator and media allow the company to apply live, viable microbes in all diets.

Ag Water Management

Trimble has introduced the new AG GCS200 system for agricultural water management. The system is specifically designed for land leveling and drainage applications. It works in conjunction with a laser transmitter to provide automatic machine control of implements such as scrapers and drainage machines, helping farmers to manage water on their fields regardless of crop type or water requirements. The system works with implements with PT valves and can use either dual rigid mast control or single electric mast control. The LP410 laser receiver and the new CB60 control box provide a digital elevation display that can be used in both survey and control modes.
