CONCERNED ABOUT AVIAN INFLUENZA?
AVI-FOAMGUARD allows quick, safe mass depopulation of infected poultry while minimizing human contact with diseased animals.
Existing methods for mass depopulation—including whole-house CO2, in-house poly-tenting, and live cage-haul—are time-consuming, cumbersome, even dangerous to personnel. Commercial producers have faced an almost insurmountable challenge in safely and quickly destroying infected broiler populations in the event of disease or natural disaster, such as in the case of an infection by avian influenza. Until now.
Kifco's AVI-FOAMGUARD is the first system developed specifically to allow safe, effective, mass depopulation of broiler houses in the event of a high-path infection such as H5N1.
Field-tested and developed with input from the poultry industry, the AVI-FOAMGUARD has been proven 100% effective in depopulating poultry houses, and can effect complete whole-house depopulation in less than 30 minutes. Better yet, only one operator needs to enter the facility.
Kifco's equipment can help you:
- CONTROL BIOSECURITY RISK: Effect depopulation quickly and effectively—INSIDE the broiler house
- HELP PROTECT PERSONNEL: Reduce the number of personnel involved in depopulation efforts
- MAXIMIZE EFFECTIVENESS: Whole-house depopulation requires little more than 30 minutes
- REDUCE COSTS: Significantly reduce labor, time, and expenses compared with CO2 gas or other methods
Kifco's AVI-FOAMGUARD system represents a tremendous step forward over existing methods for mass depopulation. Using readily available, non-toxic firefighting foam, the AVI-FOAMGUARD allows its operator to quickly dispense an enormous amount of medium-expansion water-based foam directly into a broiler house.
