Bijou Hill Dairy is located in Byers, Colorado and has had the Silver Bullet installed since April 2012 and has experienced outstanding results. The following is a testimonial provided by the farm owner, Craig Pearson:
“During this time, Silver Bullet has sampled several of the troughs at Bijou Hill Dairy and sent the samples to an independent laboratory for biological testing. The tests show a 10,000-fold reduction in coliforms, 100-fold reduction in HPC, a ten-fold reduction in Staphylococcus Aureus (Staph), a ten-fold reduction in Escherichia Coli (E. Coli), and Listeria has been nearly eradicated.
We at Bijou Hill have seen excellent results while using the Silver Bullet system:
- Somatic Cell counts have gone down by 100,000 cells, and the lower cell count appears to be stable
- The cows are drinking out of troughs that they never used to drink out of
- In our milk chiller water, we have seen a reduction of bacteria to an undetectable level
- We believe that the overall health of our herd is much better than we have ever seen it before
Dairymen and farmers are a very busy group of individuals. In their busy lives they tend to neglect water quality and the importance that it may have in the will-being of their animals. Water quality is something that should be given more consideration in running an overall healthy farm.
There are many harmful bacteria that are constantly growing in the animals’ water troughs and the negative effects that these bacteria have on the health of our animals is sometimes lost in the mix of day-to-day operations.
Based on these facts, Bijou Hill Dairy would highly recommend the Silver Bullet Water Treatment system to any fellow farmer or dairymen. It has greatly increased our overall water quality and we believe it would do the same for anyone who would give it a chance.”
