Small increases in the daily performance of laying birds can have large benefits over the whole laying period. Extending the productive lifetime of laying hens can have a large benefit to the bottom line ROI calculated as 80p per hen per day.
Anpario had conducted a commercial study with ISA Brown layer hens at 67 weeks of age. 6,529 hens were divided into two groups and either fed the basal control diet or with 250g/MT Orego-Stim following a two week adaptation period. The group with the lowest production was chosen to be the Orego-Stim group with 68.5% compared to the control group of 74.4% daily production performance respectively. Daily egg production was monitored for 5 weeks with Orego-Stim being fed from 69 to 71 weeks.
Orego-Stim is Anpario's 100% natural high quality oregano essential oil (OEO) additive, available in both liquid and powder.
