The NUTRI Layer range is a result of NUTRI Feed’s intensive research, international technologies and leading scientific formulation methods.
The NUTRI Layer range consists of Pullet Rearing Products and a Layer range.
NUTRI Layer Pullet Rearing range
The NUTRI Layer Pullet Rearing range is specifically formulated to meet the feeding requirements of the young replacement pullet during the rearing phase.
The products in the range are designed to:
- Ensure the best possible weight gain in the pullet to optimise her genetic potential.
- Supply the optimal NUTRIent content to the pullet to ensure peak performance in the egg production phase.
- Ensure sustained production in the remainder of the egg production cycle.
During the Rearing Phase, from day old to about 18 weeks of age, a phase feeding program is used. As the young hen’s feeding requirements change, the feed ration is adjusted to optimally meet her NUTRIent requirements in that specific growth phase.
This product is fed during the starter phase, from day old to 8 weeks. Feed ad lib.
This product is used during the starter phase, from day-old to 8 weeks of age.
This product is used during the growth phase, from eight weeks to the point of lay. Should the Pullet Pre-Lay not be used, this product can be used up to the point of lay.
This product is recommended during the final part of the growth phase, from 15 weeks up to the point of lay. Should the body weight profile be heavier than that recommended by the breed standard at 15 weeks, the ration is recommended. The nutrient density is lower in the ration, which enables the producer to control the hen’s body weight, and will prevent the hen from becoming overweight.
This product is used during the late growing phase, from 15 weeks to the point of lay. It is recommended that the Pre-Lay product be used in the feeding programme from 15 weeks. This product has a high nutrient density that is aimed at maintaining the hen’s body weight according to the breed standard. Should the hen be much heavier than the breed standard at 15 weeks, the Pullet Developer product should be used. This product has a lower nutrient density and the aim is to control the body weight while preventing the hen from becoming overweight.
The NUTRI LAY Layer Mash range focuses on:
- Providing the hen with sufficient nutrients that will allow the hen to realise her genetic potential.
- Lower feed conversion for optimal production.
The range is developed to make provision for a phase feeding programme. This enables the producer to meet the hen’s nutrient requirements during specific phases in the production cycle.
This product is recommended for use from 40 weeks up to 60 / 65 weeks of age. During this phase the focus is sustaining the hen’s production.
This product is recommended for use after 60 weeks of age. Sometimes the egg-price-to-feeding-costs ratio or a shortage of point-of-lay pullets justifies keeping hens for longer than 65 weeks. The lower feeding costs of the product, as well as the fact that the product meets the nutrient requirements of the hen during the late stage of the production, make this the ideal product to use in such situations.
