Slaked lime has been used for centuries in deep litter in sheep barns in Norway. Slaked lime still covers this need and is spread directly in the pens. The lime binds moisture while creating a high pH environment, which in turn produces an unfavourable environment for flies and larvae. Therefore, lime is recommended in order to create a better climate in barns and for the disinfection of barns. In connection with outbreaks of disease, such as avian flu quick lime / caustic lime is considered an effective disinfectant. We have guidelines for the use of quick lime in such situations.
