Every year, Thermo® solutions of CCPA Group are used in the field or tested on new farms. This edition includes some of the feedback on these solutions during the year 2021.
Thermo®Poultry: The Advantages of the Sachet Format
Used at each heat peak by various French free-range chicken production organisations, Thermo®Poultry was selected for its original format of soluble powder in a single-use sachet (100 g/1000L of water). There are many reasons for this choice:
- Reduced loads handled, required storage space and shipping costs
- Risk-free stacking of boxes
- Easy dosing that reduces user errors or the management of open cans
- Possibility of sharing a box between several buildings
ThermoPlus®: A Positive Impact on Milk Production
A new trial on a large farm in Mexico showed the positive effects of ThermoPlus® over a long period of use (125 days).
The distribution of ThermoPlus® started 25 days before farrowing and continued through the first 100 days of lactation.
The increase in feed intake and in the number of ruminating cows translates into better animal comfort and has a strong impact on milk production. The improvement in animal behavior such as respiratory rate, calmer and lying animals, is very visible in most farms.
ThermoControl®: Maintain Performance in Hot Weather
In this French farm, the ThermoControl® solution is implemented in the lactating sow and fattening pig formulas from mid-May. It was integrated only at the end of May 2021, too late according to the breeder : “We must anticipate the first heat strokes“.
In fattening, better consumption in summer is observed with the addition of ThermoControl®. Breeding has reduced losses to around 1% even in the middle of summer. For the same duration of presence the performances are held, “Not a lot under 100 kg!» says the breeder when he was previously around 95-96 kg in August.
“ThermoControl® is essential! Don’t miss it” concludes the breeder.
