Heat stress raises body temperature and respiratory frequency in exposed animals. Sweating and water intake may also increase in certain cases. This condition leads to a decrease in voluntary feed intake and performance. The CCPA GROUP has developed a specific line of products, the Thermo® range, which allows effective management during these high-risk periods, in order to support intensive poultry, swine and ruminant farming.
Minimising the negative impact of heat stress
Animals, particularly those with high productive performance, are very sensitive to ambient temperature and humidity. During periods of heat, animals are subjected to significant levels of heat stress, which may affect their health, welfare and growth. This situation may entail considerable economic losses for the livestock sector.
In order to minimise the effects of heat stress, the CCPA GROUP has developed a series of innovative products, whose formulations include natural ingredients.
