Animal nutrition is at the heart of global issues:
To feed 9 billion people in 2050, to preserve natural resources, in compliance with animal welfare, this is the delicate equation to solve.
Four major concerns move the everyday lives of IDENA experts:
To valorize, to add value to by-products:
By getting similar or better zootechnical performance, in intensive productions, by using raw materials that are by-products of the food industry. Indeed, to substitute noble ingredients such as cereals or grains enables to move towards a sustainable path, by preserving the environment.
Tomorrow’s animal production cannot continue to devour noble agricultural raw materials that are necessary to human consumption. IDENA expertise of feed formulation enables a better valorization and value-addition of by-products. (lien page 2)
To increase feed efficiency and conversion:
Each and every point of Feed conversion ratio (FCR) is one step towards environment preservation. Idena continuously strives towards this objective, in connection with the genetic improvements of livestock. (lien vers efficacité alimentaire)
To develop unique and specific nutritional specialties:
Which enable to decrease the environmental impact of intensive animal production. In ruminant, Gasoless® enables to decrease enteric methane outputs of 15 to 20%, by improving the digestive functioning of the rumen.
To improve animal welfare thanks to a better digestive comfort of the animals.
For example, in broiler, Evolit increases feed digestibility and reduces moisture of the droppings. The outcome is direct on animal welfare since we record a very significant reduction (up to 70%) of the number of birds affected with acute footpad dermatitis.
To improve animal welfare through better digestive comfort of the animals:
EVOLIT® in poultry meat, increases the digestibility of the food, reducing moisture in the droppings. The impact is live on animal welfare: We record a very significant reduction (up to 70%) of the number of animals affected with acute laminitis.
