1. A method for incorporating an agent into biochar for use in the raising, management, care, and feeding of animals, the method comprising the steps of:
treating the biochar, wherein the biochar comprises pores, thereby introducing an agent into the pores of the biochar, wherein the treating comprises infusing the agent into the pores of the biochar by adding a surfactant to a liquid solution comprising the agent, thereby producing a liquid solution comprising the agent and the surfactant, and submerging the biochar in the liquid solution comprising the agent and the surfactant;
thereby producing a treated biochar.
 
6. A method for incorporating an agent into biochar for use in the raising, management, care, and feeding of animals, the method comprising the steps of:
selecting biochar, wherein the biochar comprises pores;
and introducing an agent into the pores of the selected biochar, wherein the introducing comprises infusing the agent into the pores of the biochar by adding a surfactant to a liquid solution comprising the agent, thereby producing a liquid solution comprising the agent and the surfactant, and submerging the biochar in the liquid solution comprising the agent and the surfactant.
