Ovum Plus ®
Advanced egg shell strengthening technology
Every egg producer sooner or later may experience a shell quality problem. Thin, weak, rough, and poor textured shells cause a great economic loss. Shell quality problems usually occur as the hen becomes older. It is thought that older hens do not absorb the nutrients needed for shell formation as well as younger hens. Hence, older hens respond to supplemental feeding of nutrients to improve shell quality. OVUM – PLUS can be mixed in the feed to help reduce losses from undergrade and cracks.
WHAT RESULTS CAN YOU EXPECT ?
The proof of any product is in it’s performance in the field. OVUM – PLUS has proven itself around the world. Producers tell us you can expect better shells, save more “loss eggs”, and reduce mortality up to 4%.
