Mentioned in the article is the first trial of split feeding which Harbro have carried out on the current flock of Craig Grant at Skillymarno, Strichen, who has 16,000 LOHMANN LITE BIRDS.

Against the industry standard of 306 eggs, the flock has achieved 337.5 eggs - 31.5 eggs ahead of target and 10.3% over standard.

Cumulative mortality was 3.5% compared to the breed standard of 8% meaning a further 720 birds, were available for production.

Average feed consumption was 118g/head/day and egg weight followed the standard curve all through the lay.
