Results from the Field

egg production.jpg

This data is from an actual pasture raised poultry farm in beautiful Capay Valley, California, where during the fall/winter of 2014/2015, two identical groups of 250 hens were separated. They both received the same feed, pasture (fenced apart), and all other equal inputs. However, one group got Henlight; the other, nothing.

 Sure enough, by the end of winter, the lay rate of the two groups had diverged significantly, leading to an average 20% increase in egg production for the Henlight coop. For this farmer, that increase in lay rate resulted in an additional 2,253 eggs, or 188 dozen. Sold at $6/doz, the result was $1,126 (USD), and an ROI in one season!
