Scientific Literature on the Benefits of Charcoal and
Bacillus subtilis as Feed Supplements
Charcoal was administered at a dosage of 200-400g per cow per day on the farms. 21 farm managers, each with an average herd of 150 cows, gave their observations of the effects they had observed during and after the administration of charcoal:
Generally improved health and appearance
Improved udder health
Decreased cell counts in the milk (interrupting the administration of biochar leads to higher cell counts and a drop in performance)
Minimisation of hoof problems • Stabilisation of post-partum health
Reduced diarrhoea within 1-2 days, faeces subsequently generally more solid
Decline in the mortality rate
Increase in milk protein and/or fat
Combining biochar and sauerkraut brine has proved worthwhile
Marked improvement of slurry viscosity, with less stirring needed and less scum on the surface
Slurry not smelling as bad as it used to smell. Preliminary tests on the slurry show that adding biochar via the gastrointestinal tract or via direct application
Increased ammonium nitrogen
Reduced nitrate and nitrite
