Optimising digestive and ruminal function by controlling the microbial flora
To optimise the function of the digestive tract and the rumen, the CCPA Group has developed innovative nutritional solutions in poultry, pigs and ruminants. These solutions, originating in the CCPA Group’s research in phytoexpertise, are formulated with natural active ingredients and have been tried and tested in the context of various livestock farms and feed systems worldwide.
Two specific programmes optimise the digestive and ruminal function in livestock:
ProActiv'® range: launched in 2013, this range of natural nutritional solutions and programmes encourages the establishment and development of beneficial digestive flora for monogastric animals, poultry and pigs. These solutions come in the form of nutritional additives that can be incorporated in premixes or compound livestock feeds.
VivActiv'® range: this natural nutritional technique, which includes vegetal active ingredients selected by the CCPA Group’s R&D, favourably orientate the growth of beneficial ruminal flora and the exploitation of the energy and protein in the feed rations of cattle, sheep and goats. VivActiv'® combines specific nutritional additives to optimise the feed ration of ruminants and improve feed efficiency.

Digestive health: a question of balance!
The intestinal microbiota plays a key role in the integrity of the digestive tract and, more generally, in animal health. Failure to control this flora may cause diarrhoea, mortality, under-performance, increased pressure on health and greater use of antibiotics. Good digestive health results in a balance between the mucosa, the microflora and the feed given to the animals. In cattle, sheep and goats, controlling the function of the specific microbial flora of the rumen is also a key issue in ensuring animal health and the feed efficiency of the rations.
