Orego-Stim is used in commercial layer farms to help sustain high egg production rates as well as to prevent the manifestation of gastrointestinal tract diseases. The increase in the average daily production rate of the farm is usually the main concern of the layer producers and is largely due to the performance-enhancing properties of Orego-Stim.
However, other benefits of Orego-Stim to commercial layers that may not yet be known to many include better growth and uniformity of replacement pullets, better eggshell quality and a reduction in the percentage of inferior eggs.
The general recommended inclusion rate of Orego-Stim for layers is the standard poultry inclusion rate of 300 grams per tonne of feed. Orego-Stim can be started from day-old layer chicks. It is safe and reliable, and helps the chicks to get quickly accustomed to eating solid food, while concurrently combating brooding infections such as E. coli and Salmonella spp.
An additional 150ml of Orego-Stim Liquid during the first week of life also helps the chicks to drink more water and offers further protection against gastrointestinal pathogens that cause diarrhoea.
