Project Title

Feeding organic calcium to laying hens (FOKAL)

Project description

The breaking strength is an important quality feature of eggs, because it decisively determines the economic success of egg production. Empirical observations suggest that the replacement of conventional (inorganic) calcium feeding with organic calcium, such as calcium lactogluconate, can improve shell stability. The feeding takes place via the watering system.The project aims to assess the impact of organic Ca on shell stability in comparison to the conventional variant in a field and a station test. Additionally, the suitability of a compressed air impulse flushing, developed by Pfalz Tec GmbH, is tested for keeping the infusion system free of Ca-related deposits over the entire project period within the framework of the field test.
