NATURAL FORMULATION:

Stall Sorb is a naturally reprecipitated product derived from hot water springs which reach temperatures of 138 degrees. The hot water springs give unique characteristics such as which color, soft composition, and a fast reaction time.

Generally, most bacteria, protozoa, virus' and parasites grow in the range of 5-8 pH. They are dependent on this pH level in their environment because each pathogen exhibits optimum growth in neutral pH levels. Higher pH levels are detrimental to pathogen survival. Stall Sorb has a pH of 9 and when it is added to the environment, the survival rate of the pathogens decreases because they may not survive or grow in such a basic environment. 

DRY APPLICATION:

For use in stalls or pens designated for horses, sheep, goats, lamas, rabbits, or poultry. For best results, clean area and apply StallSorb to the ground before adding new bedding. May also be applied to existing bedding. Apply 1 lb per 9 square feet. Use heavier on wet or urinated areas.

WET MIXING RATE AND APPLICATION:

Mix 40 lbs of Stall Sorb fine powder in 4-6 gallons of water. The mixture should have a paint-like consistency. The mixing rate may change slightly depending on the type of applicator used. For example, when using a backpack sprayer, the mixing rate should be 40 lbs of Stall Sorb to 9 gallons of water. The thicker the mixture is, the better the coverage will be. If the coverage is too thin, another coat may been need to be applied. 

When applying Stall Sorb fine powder to plastic, good coverage is necessary, but a very thick coat may cause the product to flake off. When applying to wood or cement, it is okay to apply a thick, heavy coat. On a stall with the following dimensions, 5 ft wide x 4 ft tall x 12 ft long, approximately 7-10 lbs of Stall Sorb will be used. A residue of Stall Sorb will remain from a previous application so there is no need to disinfect or power wash the stall before a second application. Therefore the Stall Sorb usage will drop to 4-6 lbs for the second application.
