Frustrated at their inability to solve the respiratory and digestive problems associated with an abnormally stressed behavior of their rabbits and a mortality rate of up to 20% at 70 days on some bands, a couple of Ain breeders called for Natur’Ethique’s expertise.

After diagnosis, it turned out that the rabbits suffered from the disruptive effects of a ground fault under the building and poor water quality (presence of biofilms).

Natur’Ethique recommended for ERS Oscillators to be installed as well as a NATUR’AQUA water treatment system to be put in place.

It only took a few hours after the installation of the units for the animals to regain a calm state. An improvement of health conditions has also been observed: the fattening mortality is reduced to 8-10% and health costs are reduced by 42%.

At the same time, economic performance has increased sharply from one year to the next: The average weight of rabbits has increased by 9.7% (more than 200g), the declassification rate has dropped by 44% and the yield has increased by almost 2 points.

Finally, the disappearance of olfactory nuisance by the reduction of ammonia levels contributes to a better atmosphere in the buildings. Drier waste no longer attracts flies. Manure transformation is faster, improving spreading conditions.
