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.
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.”
GAEC du SoleilBreeding of Charolais suckler cows and meat poultry
“In 2017, we decided to use Delta® ThermoPlus on our finishing batches. We see nothing but good things in Delta® ThermoPlus! There are no refusals, the ingestion is regular, the animals are lying down, calm and the performance, even if we don’t have an accurate measurement, is much better! We use the ThermoTool application to manage the distribution of the product and it is a very good indicator!”
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!”
