Successfully rearing layer pullets with standardized phyto-molecules
The 18 week challenges of pullet rearing
Nowadays, modern layers are able to achieve extremely high performances. For instance, they are capable of producing 366 eggs at 80 weeks and 437 eggs at 95 weeks with an average egg size of 63.1 g (Lohmann, 2018). To reach this level of performance, one key to success is to achieve a successful 18-week pullet rearing period (Lohman, 2007).
