A.S. Series 75-34
Current reports in the literature Indicate that the feed cost of producing eggs can be reduced by limiting feed Intake. This is true when laying diets of high nutrient density are used and the feed restriction is applied after the flock peaks in production. Previous tests at this station have shown that, under some feed cost situations, lower density diets also can reduce the feed cost of eggs. This experiment tested the effects of restricting both low and high density diets on hen performance.
