MANAGEMENT GUIDE

3

Most people who are involved in commer-

cial egg production, have seen management

guides for different strains of layers before and

may think “if you have seen one, you’ve seen

them all”. Others take the contents more se-

riously and expect frequent updates to find

specific data which apply to the current gen-

eration of layers and current management

practices. Newcomers in the business may

need more detailed explanations than can be

presented in this compact format.

We hope that each reader will find some use-

ful information, to confirm proven manage-

ment practices or to stimulate improvements.

Why should you study this management guide?
