Layer feed program
The Natur-aile Ponte feed program provides hens with all the essential nutrients for good egg production.
It is formulated to provide 17 % of crude protein and all other essential nutrients, including amino acids, calcium, phosphorus, vitamins, and minerals, all in one feed.
It is the only well-balanced feed recommended for birds from 20 weeks of age until the end of the laying cycle. Natur-aile Ponte should be fed at a rate of 10 to 12 kg per day per 100 hens (22 to 25 lb. per day per 100 hens).
Natur-aile Ponte contains 3.5 % of calcium, so no other additional source of calcium is needed.
However, as hens age, the quality of eggshells may deteriorate. If this happens, supplement the Natur-aile Ponte feed with a source of calcium such as coarse limestone or oyster shells.
Also consider offering your layers insoluble grit twice a week. This is available at your local cooperative, along with additional sources of calcium.
