Products

BIFEGE is a Prussian blue-based product used to treat anemia in animals.

It can also be used as a supplement to increase livestock weight and milk yield and improve young stock livability.

Moreover, BIFEGE improves hematopoietic functions, increases hemoglobin levels, and lowers cholesterol in blood.

It is ideal for prevention and treatment of intoxication in animals with heavy metals and radionuclides.

PRODUCT PROPERTIES
APPLICATION INSTRUCTIONS

DESCRIPTION


Dark blue powder with formless particles 0.15 to 2.5 mm in size. It consists of the active ingredient FERROCINUM (Prussian blue) (10%) on a carrying agent, specially treated cellulose (90%). It serves as the basis for removal of radionuclides and heavy metals from domestic and livestock animals.

 

APPLICATION EFFECTS

BIFEGE reduces the toxic load on the body, removes toxic substances and heavy metals, and improves metabolism and regeneration processes. It is used for anemia treatment, improves hematopoietic functions, increases hemoglobin levels, and lowers cholesterol in blood. The product can also be used as a supplement to improve livestock weight, milk yield, and young stock livability.

When added to animals' daily diet, it reduces cesium radionuclides by 12 to 13 times in muscle tissue, 25 to 90 times in internal organs, and 10 to 20 times in milk.

After twenty years of application and numerous tests, the product has proven very efficient. Experiments were carried out to feed BIFEGE to bull calves which received food with high content of heavy metals. These experiments demonstrated that the sorbent lowers the levels of lead, cadmium, and zinc in the tissues of experimental animals, thus improving their health and increasing their daily average weight gains by 20-40% against the control groups.

The use of BIFEGE as a feed supplement for animals not only in technogenically polluted areas, but also in regions with relatively untouched nature is cost-effective and ensures that the levels of heavy metals and radionuclides in milk will stay in line with the most stringent health standards.

APPLICATIONS

For cows
 

As a supplement to dry food for a period of 2 to 3 months (grams per head per day): 

30-60 g for cattle 30 g for young cattle and non-milking cows (for the latter, 45-60 days before calving)

30-40 g per animal for calves during the finishing period (for 2 months) for live weight gain stimulation.

For poultry

As a supplement to dry food during fattening (grams per 1 kg of live weight):

0.1 g for mature poultry

0.1-0.2 g for broiler chickens

For pigs

As a supplement to dry food for a period of 2 to 3 months (grams per head per day):

10-20 g for mature animals 30 g for young stock

20 g for brood sows (for 45 days) 

0.1 g per 1 kg of live weight for live weight gain stimulation in piglets.

TESTING AND USAGE

  1. It was shown in the production conditions of radiation contaminated areas of Russia and Belarus that BIFEGE, when fed daily for 2 weeks at optimum doses, reduces the content of radiocesium in the muscle tissue of cows, bulls, and sheep by 12 to 13 times; in internal organs, by 25 to 90 times; in cow's milk, by 10 to 20 times. In terms of price and administration methods (orally with food), the product is quite affordable for practical use.
  2. BIFEGE safety studies in sheep and cows have shown that there were no deviations from the control animals over all clinical, physiological, hematological, biochemical, immunological, productive and reproductive parameters in the animals which were fed with the product.
  3. Public health studies of the quality of milk and meat of animals which received BIFEGE with food for a long time showed that these products were absolutely safe for people.
  4. For the first time in Russia, ferrocyanide-containing veterinary drugs are produced on a commercial scale to fully meet the demand of the Ministry of Agriculture of Russia for these products. Since 1993, more than 500 tons of the BIFEGE sorbent have been supplied, which has helped to rehabilitate over 250 thousand cows and remove radiocesium from over 500 thousand tons of milk.
  5. The use of BIFEGE in radiation contaminated areas reduces the individual exposure dose by 60 to 80%, which leads to social and psychological stability for hundreds of thousands of people. It is no longer necessary to relocate thousands of private and collective farms from radionuclide contaminated areas at a high cost.
