This research report examines the relationship between body weight, feed intake, calcium nutrition, egg production and skeletal calcium content in three experiments using imported brown egg layers.

Leading research

This research report examines the relationship between body weight, feed intake, calcium nutrition, egg production and skeletal calcium content in three experiments using imported brown egg layers. The research also aims to evaluate the body weight standards provided by the international breeding companies in relationship to the appetite and growth problems identified in Australia.
