Practice of innovation.
Currently broiler production is one of the major world markets. Due to constant and in-depth researches in the field of nutrition and genetic improvement, as well as sanitation and manipulation, we have an intense and extremely efficient production when compared with productions of other animal species.
However, the limitations found in poultry farming are exactly the consequence of this high-density housing and accelerated growth, quality of feed ingredients and constant sanitary challenges.
Today the market requires quality meat, that is a safe source of protein at an affordable price.
There are countless challenges in the production of broiler breeders such as pathogen contamination, stress, environmental challenges, food restriction, vaccinations and egg production.
One of the major concerns refers to the chicken’s health during the entire productive cycle so that its maximum genetic potential may be expressed and vertical pathogen transmission through eggs to its progeny and consequent shell contamination may be reduced.
In the production of commercial, the immense challenge is to produce a quality product at an affordable price. It is common that low quality ingredients are used in the diet aside from countless climatic, environmental and sanitary challenges. Pathogen egg contamination is cause of great concern.
To invest in chickens’ health is the first step to overcome market challenges and obtain an excellent final product.
ICC offers solutions to intensify the immunological system of chickens, by improving response against challenges, reducing pathogen contamination and improving productivity.
Pig farming faces diverse sanitary challenges and the nursing phase is the most critical.
The weaned piglet does not have its immunological and digestive systems totally developed yet and it’s under adaptation process to new feed given.
To stimulate consumption is also a great challenge in this stage.
ICC offers solutions to strengthen the immunological system, by improving animal performance against challenges.
The feed intake stimulation in piglets nutrition has high impact on mortality reduction and greater weight gain
The production of healthy breeders with short weaning to service interval and breeders with high number of born piglets is extremely desirable.
For this to be possible, it is indispensable that the breeders receives adequate nutrition and its immunological system is stable.
ICC offers solutions to provide support to the breeder in the period of gestation and lactation, by improving the animal’s general condition and consequently its progeny.
The challenges of beef cattle farming are consequences of handling and nutrition techniques. Both are reflection of the bovine farming productive system.
A confined herd that receives diets rich in concentrate (starch) can present a condition of frequent rumen acidosis and consequent losses to producers.
ICC offers solutions directed toward animal health based on functional nutrition, which can act on conditions of rumen acidosis and reflect on major productivity.
The challenges in dairy cattle farming refers to handling, sanitation and nutrition.
A productive herd generates high cost and several nutritional challenges. The transition period is highly challenging during the productive cycle of a dairy cow.
ICC offers solutions directed toward animal health based on functional nutrition that reflect generally on greater productive efficiency.
The transition period of calves from monogastric to ruminant is challenging.
It is in this period that many diseases occur and animal metabolism is not prepared yet to fully defend themselves. It is of extreme importance for nutrition to support this transition period and to strengthen these animals’ immunological system.
ICC offers solutions to strengthen the animal’s defense system by improving performance in critical phases and reflecting in lower mortality and greater weight gain.
Shrimp farming is a production system with many sanitary, nutritional and handling challenges. The shrimp does not have a specific immunological system and, therefore does not produce antibodies to defend itself from pathogens. It has an innate immune system (it does not have specific immunological responses and memory in cases of reinfection).
These are the main reasons that make it a very disease susceptible production system.
ICC offers solutions to strengthen the shrimp’s innate immunological system, by improving its response against sanitary challenges and increasing number of days for the producer to react in case of a contamination, aside from improving the productivity in a general way.
Fresh or saltwater fish farming faces diverse challenges, especially nutritional and sanitary. The aquatic environment favors pathogen transmission more easily and makes its control and treatment difficult. Nutrition is a challenge as well, due to awareness of nutritional requirements, ingredients used and diet management, etc.
ICC offers solutions to intensify the immunological system, by improving response against challenges and reflecting in a general way in greater productivity.
Nutrition, health and well-being of pets are the major concerns of the pet food industry and also of their consumers. A diet that meets the animal’s requirements, which maintains quality of life and stable immune system is what is expected by animal protectors.
ICC offers solutions for improving nutrition and strengthening the immune system, resulting in a healthy and well-nourished animal.
Probiotic based on active yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae strain. ActiveFlora® was developed to resist the rumen environment and monogastrics stomach .

Mycotoxins are the secondary metabolites of fungi and their frequency of occurrence and/or the severity of the disease that they produces will determinate the importance. The group of mycotoxins that are important in feed production and came mostly from cereals are aflatoxins, fumonisins, zearalenone, deoxynivalenol (DON), ochratoxin, and T-2 toxin (Richard, 2007) …READ MORE
