NUTRAL has been working alongside livestock farmers for more than 45 years, helping them improve their herds. NUTRAL became TECHNA Group’s Animal Speciality subsidiary in 2002.

The NUTRAL speciality product ranges are the fruit of long-standing expertise in the use of plants and natural active ingredients, built up within our own laboratory. Our philosophy? “Prevention is better than cure.” NUTRAL formulates, produces and distributes nutritional specialities with no residual traces for farm animals: dairy cattle and sucklers, sheep, goats, poultry and pigs.

NUTRAL’s ambition is to contribute to the rational management of health and environmental risks on livestock farms, without losing sight of productivity. Based on a field-driven organisation, our R&D department permanently listens to farmers’ concerns, responding and adapting accordingly.

Vincent VAN CEULEN, President of NUTRAL

Flagship products


TARITRAL® assists the physiological changes related to weaning and return on heat. TARITRAL® has to be used during the dry period after the last teat stimulations (milking, suckling). It aims to sustain the hormonal changes during this period and contributes to the preservation of udder integrity throughout the lactation periods. TARITRAL® can be used on swine and dairy ruminant: cows, goats and ewes.

ACTIGREEN® assists the development and the upkeep of ruminants’ immune protection against parasites (premunity). It contributes to the balance between host and parasites at the gastro-intestinal level.

ACTIGREEN® is appropriate in cases of parasitic infestations in the digestive tract at pasture. ACTIGREEN may be distributed during the pasture period or when ruminants return to stables.

The METRABOL® bolus helps the uterus to quickly return in a functional status after calving. It is suited to go with the uterine discharge during the post-calving days. METRABOL® supports an efficient uterine involution after calving thereby contributing to an earlier coming on heat.
