Split Feeding

By utilizing a split-feeding regime, it is possible to achieve improved eggshell quality and laying persistency on a reduced nutrients intake, when compared with a single-feed approach. The morning feed delivers the nutrition for energy, protein and phosphorous for egg lay production, while the afternoon feed meets the requirements for eggshell formation.


This not only offers a reduction in feed and production costs, but also results in more effective delivery of feed ingredients, with less excretion of nutrients. With Trouw Nutrition’s support it is possible to calculate the precise supply of nutrients required for the two daily feeds, in order to ensure optimum egg formation for your flock.
