Digestive efficiency has an immense impact on the performance and profitably of farmed animals. Animals that use feed more efficiently:

  • Grow faster
  • Produce more
  • Have lower feed costs
  • Are more profitable

Rising feed costs mean that the challenge of achieving more efficient digestion is even more important than before.

CRINA® contains essential oil components proven in trials to improve feed digestion and provide great benefits.

Essential oil components have shown to work on two fronts. Firstly, they improve the balance of gut microflora, increasing the proportion of beneficial bacteria and reducing the amounts of pathogenic and undesirable bacteria in the animal’s system.

Secondly, they have shown to stimulate the animal to produce more digestive enzymes. This improves the effectiveness of feed breakdown in the gut.

Of courses, different species require different essential oil components.

Available species specific products are:

  • CRINA® Calves
  • CRINA® Finishing Pigs & Sows
  • CRINA® Horses
  • CRINA® Piglets
  • CRINA® Poultry Plus

All flavoring components in CRINA® products are approved for feed and food, and appear on the Register of Feed Additives (Reg 1831/2003) of the European Union and the FEMA (Flavor and Extracts Manufacturers Association) and/or GRAS (Generally Recognised As Safe) listings.
