CCPA Group has developed the THERMO® range, specific nutritional solutions for each species, to be used in prevention or intervention, and digital solutions to anticipate and better manage the impact of high temperatures.
High heat is not without consequences for livestock. In order to ensure their thermal comfort, to support the breeding performance and to ensure the income of the breeder, it is essential to set up a complete feeding and breeding management strategy.
That’s why CCPA Group has developed the THERMO® range, specific nutritional solutions for each species, to be used in prevention or intervention, and digital solutions to anticipate and better manage the impact of high temperatures.
“This year again, new products and services have been added to our offer,” the French company said in a statement.
THERMO®: A RANGE OF NUTRITIONAL SOLUTIONS SPECIFIC TO EACH SPECIES
Because guaranteeing the thermal comfort of animals also means maintaining their performances and the income of the breeders, CCPA Group has developed Thermo®, a complete range of solutions to meet the specific needs of each species. The Thermo® products strengthen the natural systems involved in evacuating heat, by helping improve gut integrity, offset electrolyte, and stimulate ingestion. Every type of production is affected by heat stress. That is why this year, an organic version of its ruminant solution: Thermo®Plus UOA is launched.
FARM-E-VAL: DATA VALORIZATION FROM CONNECTED FARMS DURING HEAT WAVES
It is very difficult for a farmer to estimate the economic impact of heat on his farm. Consequently, preventive actions are rarely implemented. However, the consequences are serious and will intensify with global warming. To address this challenge, CCPA Group has developed Farm-e-Val, a digital service, which relies on temperature and humidity sensors installed in the barn. This service then assesses the exact heat stress the animals were subjected to and can link it to variation in performances.
CHORUS: THERMAL COMFORT INCLUDED IN THE RATIONING TOOL
As nutrition plays an important role in helping animals fight heat stress, a new thermal comfort indicator was added, this year, in CCPA group ruminant feedstuff rationing tool: Chorus.
