Laying hens

Category: Laying hens

Heat stress in layers is under control thanks to Biovet’s Alquerfeed product line

In warm seasons, the basic thermoregulation mechanisms are insufficient and heat stress causes problems in the birds. Initially, lethargic birds are observed, with stretched wings, increased water consumption, decreased feed intake and low productive performance.

Use of Alquernat Yucca, based on Yucca extract and cimenol ring, in laying hens

In this trial the use of Alquernat Yucca, an additive based on yucca extract and cimenol ring, is tested in the diet of laying hens to reduce the concentration of ammonia present in the farms. The results show that it was reduced to more than half of the initial values, improving the general condition and welfare of the birds.
