Scott Matheson has found a way to help keep his pigs cleaner and healthier. He has installed commercially available technology that produces a safe, environmentally friendly soap and disinfectant for the family’s hog farm. The unit uses salt and water to produce Anolyte which kills unwanted bacteria in the water and in the pigs’ environment. The technology is used in the U.S. oil/gas industry, hospitals, food processing plants and schools. Since installing the unit, the farm has seen improved health in their animals and cost savings from a reduced need for medications. Neighbouring farms have tested some of the solution, including a dairy farm that has used Anolyte in the drinking water and noticed its water bowls remain clean and free of algae.
