For healthy animals and quality production, we encourage farming practices that favor prevention and individualized treatment. An approach that adapts to the needs and constraints of different types of farms, all over the world.
Health and well-being are intimately linked. By working daily for the health of farm animals, we contribute to their quality of life in the broadest sense. We have chosen an integrated medical approach that combines diagnosis, services and health solutions and promotes disease prevention as well as the reasoned and individualized use of curative treatments. We promote herd-wide vaccination and micronutrition (mineral and trace mineral supplementation) to strengthen metabolic and immune functions, reduce oxidative stress and improve the animals' resistance to disease. In addition, we encourage good care and husbandry practices that limit the sources of stress and pain for the animals, and favor protocols that accelerate their functional recovery and return to a good state of well-being. Thus, by improving animal health and welfare, we help optimize farm productivity while supporting sustainable animal husbandry practices.
Human health, animal health and environmental health are interdependent. Alongside veterinarians and breeders, we have a major role to play in contributing to the development of sustainable agriculture that preserves the balance of this ecosystem. By preventing and controlling the emergence of animal diseases in livestock, we contribute to the production of healthy and safe food and to the protection of human populations against foodborne diseases and zoonoses. Another major challenge for the entire industry today is to ensure food security for a growing world population, while preserving animal welfare and reducing our impact on the environment. Our teams are working tirelessly to develop alternatives to antibiotics to reduce the risk of antimicrobial resistance. We always emphasize prevention and promote the use of targeted treatments, combined with diagnostic tests to treat and facilitate animal recovery. The result: treatment limited to sick animals and less environmental contamination via effluents.
