The Importance of Phase Feeding in the Modern Layer
To ensure our modern layer reaches optimal performance throughout its production cycle, it is critical the bird's nutritional demands are correctly met. The use of phase feeding is best practice to ensure the bird's nutritional demand are correctly met to achieve optimal productivity and longevity of your flock.
Extending the Life of Layers
The average depletion age of commercial laying flocks in the UK and ROI is 76 weeks with a decline in egg numbers and shell quality deterioration cited as the main reasons. These birds are essentially healthy and if their egg production cycle can be lengthened without loss of shell quality there are significant welfare as well as economic benefits to be gained.
