Vancouver, British Columbia, Canadian Zeolite Corp. (the “Company”) (TSX.V: CNZ) (OTCQB: CNZCF) (FSE: ZEON) is pleased to report the Company’s Bromley Creek natural zeolite has been shipped to Piller Poultry Ltd. in Southern Ontario and is being implemented as a poultry bedding material. To determine the benefits of Canadian Zeolite’s natural zeolite it is being used in 2 of 3 of Piller Poultry Ltd.’s chicken broiler barns which house 30,000 chickens per barn.
In one barn the bedding material will contain 100% natural zeolite mixed with wheat straw bedding. The second barn will be using Activated Poultry Sense (a new natural zeolite and citric acid formula) mixed with wheat straw bedding. The addition of citric acid reduces the ammonia being released. The third barn will continue to use standard bedding with no zeolite. Piller Poultry Ltd. is monitoring for a reduction in odour and mites, stability in PH levels (which will help control e-coli outbreaks), improved air quality and for an overall improvement of manure quality.
Tony Piller, of Piller Poultry Ltd. says, “the zeolite has now been in the barns for 15 days. We do notice a positive difference in the barns that have it. As the birds get older we are expecting good results.”
Ray Paquette CEO stated, “Piller Poultry Ltd., a large poultry producer will be a valuable source in determining the real benefits of using our 100% natural zeolite as well as the new value-added Activated Poultry Sense product when compared to using standard bedding for poultry health and hygiene. The animal bedding market represents a substantial opportunity for Canadian Zeolite to establish new customers in markets including dairy and beef farming, hogs, poultry growers, exotic livestock, horses and pets.”
