A.S. Series 77-19
Previous experiments have shown that low density grower diets can more economically produce layer-type pullets without affecting their subsequent reproductive performance. Generally, weight gain during the 8- to 20-week grower phase is not affected by these diets, while feed efficiency is somewhat reduced. This report shows the reproductive performance data for the hens from last year's grower study in which the low density type diets were used.
