Maximising early egg weight

17 Jun 2020


We’ve recently worked with an egg producer in NE Scotland whose goal was to achieve breed standard for early egg weight in order to maximise profitability.

Having analysed performance figures and the health of the flock, diets were designed and made by the Harbro Tropper including unique Harbro additives to optimise performance.


Doug Steele, Harbro Poultry specialist commented:

"The challenge set by our customer was to get out of small eggs and into large as soon as possible but without going too big too soon which would affect shell quality later on. By constantly monitoring performance and adapting diets we were able to surpass the breed standard in terms of production as well as weight."
