Heat stress in farm animals: nutritional issues and solutions

Heat stress represents a major challenge for livestock, affecting their wellbeing and productivity significantly. When temperatures rise, animals seek to regulate their body temperature by reducing their food intake, resulting in a series of complex physiological responses. These responses include alterations in breathing patterns, blood gas imbalances and reduced blood flow to essential organs, thereby contributing to heat removal.

Your testimonies

  • SCEA Hamon Hamel

    Dairy farmer - Côtes d'Armor

    It was while reading the Paysan Breton that the farmers discovered Thermo®Plus, the solution for ruminants against heat stress. They had been looking for some time for a solution to support their animals in order to reduce the impact of high heat on their herd of dairy cows (drop in milk, drop in ingestion, etc.). The purchase of fans was excluded as they were more expensive in terms of investment.

    Breeding 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!”
