Organic Dairy Farming

The first major step in developing organic capabilities in dairy farming is the use of Activated Electrolyzed Aqua-Solutions which eliminate the need for chlorine, toxic chemicals, reagents and other harmful compounds in dairy farming. 

The required Water Electrolysis Equipment is manufactured by Envirolyte Industries International Ltd who is the industry leader in Electro-Activated Solutions Technology. The Activated Electrolyzed Aqua-Solutions that are produced by the Envirolyte system only uses Electricity, Salt and Water.  No man-made chemicals or other synthetic compounds are used in the process.

Envirolyte Electrolyzers produce a 100% Bio-Degradable, Non-Toxic Activated Solution that provides total disinfection, completely eliminating the use of harsh chemical formulations.  The Envirolyte system is unique in that there are no undesirable side-effects or harmful end products, since everything returns to its natural state of water, other compounds and elements.

Effective, Safe, Non-Toxic Disinfection, Sterilization and Water Purification Units

Envirolyte Electrolyzers provide for On-Site Generation of Activated Aqua Solutions that are:

Ø     Non-Irritant.

Ø     Non-Toxic

Ø     100% biodegradable as Truly Natural “Green” Products that revert to their original state as water, compounds and elements.

Ø     Rapid Acting

Ø     Broad Spectrum

Ø     Highly Effective Anti-Microbial Agents

Ø     Virtually Odorless and Environmentally Friendly

Ø     Eliminate the use of costly reagents and toxic chemicals.

Ø     Reduces the number and duration of technological operations.

Ø     Decreases the labor intensity.

There is a wide range of potential applications of Envirolyte units.

The problems associated with handling and storage of chemical based systems are eliminated. 

The Envirolyte units can largely overcome Health and Safety measures as well as Environmental Pollution Problems associated with traditional chemical systems.

Envirolyte Electrolyzers are used to alter water in producing a powerful Micro-Biocide, a Catalyst, a Detergent, a Redox Agent and many other types of Activated Water with diverse applications.

Activated Water is produced by passing a Diluted Saline Solution through an Electrolytic Reactor which changes the water’s molecular structure and transfers electrical energy to the created solutions of Anolyte [Acidic Oxidant] and Catholyte [Alkaline Anti-Oxidant]. 

Since no man-made chemical compounds are introduced, both solutions are safe for man and environment, with the Activated Solutions reverting back to ordinary water.

When Direct Current [DC] electricity flows through water a chemical reaction takes place on the electrodes, with a change in the chemical composition of the water near the Anode and Cathode.  The water activation that occurs at the Anode and Cathode terminals results in the creation of solutions whose properties including pH, Oxidation Reduction Potential [ORP] and physical form lie outside the range that can be achieved by conventional chemical means.

The electrochemical activation causes water to transform into a metastable (activated) state characterized by unusual values of Chemical and Physical Properties – including the Oxidation Reduction Potential [ORP] connected with the activity of electrons in water, Electrical Conductivity, pH, Other Parameters and Properties.

Acidic Anolyte can be used wherever there is a need to disinfect or sterilize, in applications where the pH is unimportant and where there is no danger of corrosion.

Anolyte is a very powerful disinfectant against all bacteria, viruses and algae -- even when it is diluted in water or sprayed in the air.

Alkaline Catholyte has a pH between 11 and 13 and can be used for flocculation, coagulation, washing and extraction. 

Instead of iodine or other caustic treatment, Catholyte can be used to wash wounds and wherever there is a need to increase pH level of the water to be treated.

Neutral Anolyte is used wherever pH is important in the prevention of corrosion, and where exposure to active chlorine vapors must be avoided.  

Neutral Anolyte is very effective against bacteria and viruses and is mostly used to disinfect Drinking Water and for Other Water Disinfection needs. 

Neutral Anolyte is widely used to disinfect/sterilize Floors, Walls, Ceilings, Tools, Foodstuff etc.

Technology developed 2 decades ago by Russian researchers and offered by Envirolyte has the potential to revolutionize the American livestock industry at a lower production cost than today’s conventional methods of livestock farming.

Use of Alkaline Ionized Drinking Water on Dairy Farms in Japan

Through their awareness of the positive health benefits that are acquired through human consumption of Alkaline Ionized Water [AIW], 26 dairy farmers in Japan used AIW as the sole source of drinking water for their dairy cows, with the results outlined in the report herein. 

The test results were obtained from the dairy farmers, along with reports from a group of veterinarians.  The source of each report is identified at the beginning of the report.

In general, the following measurable conditions were noted:

  1. An increase in milk output by 18% - 28%.
  1. A notable improvement in the quality of milk.
  1. Elimination of strong feces and urine odors.
  1. Healthier skin condition.
  1. Minimized injury to the udder.
  1. Decrease in diarrhea cases.
  1. Strengthening of the legs.
  1. Increased appetite.
  1. Able to reduce mineral supplements normally added to the feed.
  1. Due to an improved health condition coupled with stronger legs, extended the productive life span of the cows.
  1.  Improved the fertility rate and reduced still births in new-born calves.

Aside from the above, the following opinions were noted by the veterinarians:

  1. A noticeably increased appetite.  No new supplements were added to their diet.  Increase in appetite noted in older cows also.
  1. Well digested foods.
  1. A beautiful sheen on the cow’s hair.
  1. Higher fertility rate; higher pregnancy rate.
  1. A new-born calf exposed to alkali water matures quicker.

While the Japanese electrolyzers used by the Hokkaido dairy farmers produced amazing results, Envirolyte Electrolyzers are of better design and efficiency.

The longevity of the electrodes used in the Envirolyte system do not require replacement for up to 10 years -- versus more frequent replacement of electrodes in the Japanese electrolyzers after as little production as 500,000 gallons of electrolyzed water. 

In addition, Envirolyte Electrolyzers can generate multiple Anolyte [Acidic] & Catholyte [Alkaline] Activated Ionized Solutions with a single electrolyzer unit by use of either a single Water Electrolyzer Cell or multiple cells.

Envirolyte Activated Ionized Solutions are more stable, with Anolyte Biocide retaining its effectiveness for up to 12 months and with over 500 ppm Free Available Chlorine [FAC] generated in the Envirolyte system, versus only 50 ppm of FAC with the Japanese electrolyzers
