FAQ

Ask SOP staff for information

Yes.

The combination of SOP Bio-resilience and Bio-hygienization means that the animals are stronger and living in a more controlled environment. It is therefore possible, in most cases, to obtain a good reduction in mastitis and dermatitis of an environmental origin (not contagious or chronic), if the SOP products are used, at least, in the critical areas.

Although using only the product for bio-hygienization will bring excellent results, they will not be as complete as those which can be obtained by using SOP STAR COW.

Regarding the somatic cells, before making any kind of calculation of the reduction, it is necessary to consider the initial situation, the possible presence of contagious microorganisms (such as Staph. aureus, Strep. agalactiae, Prototheca,...) and, more importantly, the presence of chronic cows.

No, they won't.

The SOP products have been designed to be used at such a low dosage that they do not influence the nutritional values of the ration.

The use of SOP STAR COW may lead to an increase in feed efficiency, so that the farmer may be able to modulate the ration in function of the new nutritional requirements of the animals.

SOP STAR COW is not a medicine and does not substitute any necessary veterinary intervention, in any way.

The product may improve the animal's general state of wellbeing, which means that all subsequent interventions can be recalibrated.

No, you can't.

The disinfectants would have a negative impact on the beneficial organisms that SOP stimulates, and the part that these microorganisms play in opposing the action of the pathogens, will be lost.

Yes, you can.

The SOP products have no inhibiting action on methanigenic bacteria and, therefore, do not interfere with their capacity to convert the biomass into methane.

It is recommended to treat the liquid manure coming out of the digester with SOP LAGOON.

No. Diarrhea has multiple causes, including bacteria, virus and parasites.

The SOP products for calves help to boost the animal's natural immune system and oppose the proliferation of the environmental pathogenic bacteria in the calf hutch/pen.

These two factors alone cannot guarantee the elimination of such an important pathology, which has a number of different causes.

Years of experience and results have shown us how, in most cases, the liquid manure remains more uniform and, in the case that organic bedding material is used, the crust will be reduced and kept to such levels that it is no longer a problem.

If organic materials are not used in the barn, the liquid manure will be easily manageable and, in most cases, it will be possible to stop using the agitator altogether.

Yes, it can.

SOP ZIP COW is based on vegetable oils and contains food colouring. It does not contain any chemical agents or antibiotics, which could penetrate the tissues and contaminate the milk.

All the SOP products are based on natural raw materials.

Many of them are also allowed in Organic Farming in Europe, Canada and the USA.
