Periods of high heat, particularly during the summer, alter the comfort of livestock, which are subject to heat stress. This stress affects the physiology of the animals: their body temperature, their respiratory frequency as well as their water consumption increase strongly. This phenomenon is called heat stress and leads to a decrease in the animals’ intake and performance.
In response to these delicate phases during which the comfort and well-being of the animals must remain a priority, the CCPA Group has developed the Thermo range of digital products and tools. The result of our expertise, these solutions support the natural means available to the animals to fight against thermal stress.
Our solutions by species
We provide you with advice to fight the impact of thermal stress in your breeding. CCPA has developed specific products for this delicate period and adapted to the physiology of each species.
Joseph TouchaisDairy cow breeder in Ille-et-Vilaine
“The cows suffered from the heat: they ate less and decreased production. I used Delta® ThermoPlus all summer and the difference is remarkable: the cows are eating better and especially from a behavioral and health point of view, it’s much better than previous summers!”
Olivier TraineauBreeder of laying hens in Maine-et-Loire
“I wanted to test the new Thermo®Poultry nutritional solution. I observed better behaviour of my hens in the open air. Mortality was reduced by 1.38 points over the observation period. Thermo®Poultry can be used in drinking water, which makes it easy to use in case of heat stroke.”
Laurent FleuryGoat breeder in Thénezay (79)
“Since I’ve been using ThermoPlus my goats can tolerate heat better. They continue to eat and their milk production has decreased less. I’m not the only one who has noticed changes, two experienced inseminators were surprised to see my goats so little out of breath! I am conquered by this product: 91% of AI are successful. Next year I am already planning to use ThermoPlus again!”
