(O’Fallon, IL, Oct. 4, 2017) – Brookside Agra introduces new ABSORB PLUS™, an all-natural, multi-purpose drying agent that provides sustained suppression and elimination of ammonia, moisture and odors in animal production and housing facilities.

ABSORB PLUS is composed of 80% hydrated sodium calcium aluminosilicate and a 20% mineral mix of iron, zinc and copper. ABSORB PLUS also contains no phosphorus, which eliminates concerns regarding manure management and application, and it poses no health threats to animals or humans. All of ABSORB PLUS’s separate components are on the GRAS (Generally Recognized As Safe) and FDA lists.

“Brookside Agra uses private and university testing facilities to ensure a superior final product, making ABSORB PLUS a safe, high-quality and cost-effective multi-purpose drying agent,” said Tim Nelson, Brookside Agra Vice President – Animal Health & Nutrition Sales.

ABSORB PLUS offers the following benefits:

  • Improves air quality for animals and humans through excellent ammonia control
  • Promotes healthier animal environments, resulting in reduced death loss and increased profits
  • Won’t harm humans, animals or the environment
  • Contains all-natural and antibiotic-free ingredients and no phosphorus

ABSORB PLUS is ideal for use in the following areas: swine and poultry housing, calf units, dairy loafing houses, animal bedding, dog kennels, livestock trucks and trailers and horse stables. ABSORB PLUS may also be used for dry foot baths, as a drying agent for piglets, in whole grain storage bins, at livestock exhibitions, and more.

ABSORB PLUS can be sprayed or blown on any surface, including the animals. Application should be repeated weekly to refresh the thin coating, suppress moisture and eliminate odors.
