TECHNA FRANCE NUTRITION is the subsidiary responsible for feed expertise activities, TECHNA Group’s traditional business.

Today’s animal production companies are operating in a highly competitive environment against the backdrop of an increasing global demand for feed products. New environmental and societal requirements are constantly emerging and agriculture is diversifying and addressing new challenges.

TECHNA FRANCE NUTRITION supports the development of its customers via three core fields of expertise: precision nutrition, livestock technology and economics of production. This in-depth knowledge of animal nutrition enables us to offer a reliable and innovative range of solutions and services: relevant nutritional and zootechnical expertise, powerful technical software associated with high-quality premixes and additives.

We proclaim the Group’s signature loudly and clearly: “let’s be reasonable, let’s produce more”. It conveys our principal ambitions: to improve your technical capacities and profitability while respecting people, animals and the planet.

The world is shifting, everything is getting faster. Reactivity is more than ever a key factor in our relationships with our customers. These relationships are built upon a solid foundation of constant professionalism and high standards.

The various changes triggered by weaning (separation with the mother, changes of feed and of environment) can have a damaging impact on piglet intestinal microbiota. These disorders can lead to inflammations and diarrheas which, in turn, affect growth performance.

CARNEO® BOOST is an additive solution developed from TECHNA’s research. By stimulating rumen flora, CARNEO® BOOST directs fermentation  in a way that lactate acid is reduced and propionic acid (C3) is improved, in a proportion between +15 à +21%.

This propionic acid is particularly favorable to the muscle development of fattening cattle. Its effectiveness has been proven in numerous field trials on different types of breeds (Charolais, Belgian Blue, Limousin, Cross breeds…) and diets  (silage, by-products, ad lib concentrate diet…).

PROTICAL® is a highly absorbable source of calcium.  It also contains precursors of the components of the skeleton.

By strengthening the bone structure, this product increases the calcium storage capacity in the poultry. In a laying hen, PROTICAL® limits the mobilisation of calcium of the bone marrow: the strength of the shell is clearly increased.

It results in a 30% reduction of the number of broken or downgraded eggs, and a decline in the number of cracked eggs. The bone structure of the animal is better preserved.
