New conference for egg producers – how to increase your financial Return

Share this post

St David’s Poultry Team are delighted to be hosting two free events in March for egg producers. With the modern layer being a very different bird, with a very high production potential, the focus will be on how to maximise their productivity.

As well as St David’s speakers, we’ll be joined by industry guests, who will share examples of ways you as producers can develop your business and increase your financial return. There will also be discussion on the future of the industry and how planning for new and existing houses may impact that.

Why is this important?

The production potential of the modern layer can make this new bird increasingly vulnerable to disease and performance issues, so we have been involved in developing practical and easy strategies to help you as farmers maximise this potential and get the very best out of your flocks. For example, we work with a number of free-range farms which have successfully produced multiple laying flocks with low mortality and good performance over 100 weeks of age.

Not only is this good financially, but it is also good for the birds and good for the environment.

St David’s Poultry Team Clinical Director for Ireland Aonghus Lane said

“As a practice we are not just vets, we are advisors who want to ensure that our customers are as successful as possible in bird health and welfare, achieving high levels of performance and profitability. I’m looking forward to getting together with others from the industry to share knowledge and experiences, as well as to discuss the future direction and opportunities of egg production.”

St David’s vet Dr Dana Simpson said

“The modern-day layer has an immense production potential.  With that in mind, St David’s have developed a customised range of in-feed premixes, combining products with proven efficacy in the field, to provide tailored support during different key stages in the flocks’ life. Successful management and support of the flocks’ health has allowed our clients to routinely extend the laying cycle beyond 90 weeks with over 500 eggs/hen housed produced.”
