Ohio State University recently conducted a study using Tomco’s In-Gest-O-Bac Pit Additive

Organic nitrogen levels were the same while P2O5 and K2O values increased by 2.5 lbs per 1,000 gallons and 2.9 lbs. per 1,000 gallons, respectively. Based on current fertilizer costs this equated to an increase in value of the manure as fertilizer of $3.96 per 1,000 gallons of manure (...) Based on these costs, in the Seneca barn using an average manure production and application rate of 450,000 gallons per year, the increased value of the fertilizer from the treated pit would be $1,782. This represents a return on investment (ROI) of slightly more than 2 to 1, based on first year costs, and almost 3:1 based on Maintenance costs.

Mid-West Research Study

Results from a study conducted by a mid-west research facility associated with a major feed company from a study designed to evaluate the use of pit additives to assist with pumping of animal waste resulting from beef animals resulted in the Project Supervisor commenting that (1) Treatment pit was much more liquid that the control, (3) Treatment solution had a tendency to freeze and (3) Felt the treatment "worked". The conclusions of the study indicated that IN-GEST-O-BAC met the objectives of the study, improving the pumping and clean out of the treated pit. More gallons of manure were removed from the treated pit than from the control pit.

"We haven't had one complaint [in reference to odor] out here," said Jim McPeak, Rochester MN, owner of the Great Plains Swine farm near White Lake. "It's because we keep our lagoon diluted and we use a special bacteria [LIQUID LIVE IN-GEST-O-BAC from Tomco Chemical] in the lagoon that kills the smell." The syrup-like bacteria McPeak uses comes from Tomco Chemical Company in New York ... McPeak said that many farmers who do not use a treatment for their lagoons end up with a thick crust floating on the surface and when they spray their fields a thick black liquid coats the ground. "Our lagoon looks just like just a lake," he said. "I can tell that the bacteria is working because the lagoon has a purple tint and there are bubbles."
