Exclusive and differentiating services

In animal nutrition:

In animal health:

In close collaboration with the Group's R&D department, specific diagnostics have been designed:

  • the Axiscale® diagnosis. This diagnosis, applied to chicks, dairy cows and pigs, makes it possible to evaluate, on the basis of blood samples, the level of oxidative stress in animals and to consider, in this case, adaptations of feeding practices in breeding.

As part of their work on animal nutrition and health, the CCPA Group's R&D specialists also rely on the Group's laboratory network. Laboratories and R&D have acquired expertise in the characterization of essential oils: identification of active ingredients, evaluation of their beneficial impacts on improving animal health, or in measuring the interaction/inhibition effects between active ingredients...
