Rearing strategies for pullets

Optimising diets around pullet rearing

A good layer starts with a healthy pullet. The aim of egg producers is to improve eggshell quality and laying persistency. This is because more saleable eggs directly impact farm profitabilityFocus on optimising diets for pullets is the first step to get there. NutriOpt's rearing strategies for pullets strongly focuses on reducing Ca-P levels and the use of crumble feed (1-3mm) in the first 6 weeks.
