Free Range Layer Feeds – Corby Rock Mill

Free Range Layer Feeds

We at Corby Rock Mill are committed to the quality of all feeds manufactured and delivered. We aim to ensure that the nutritional requirements of all poultry are met to ensure optimum performance in growth, reproduction and health through the carefully formulated diets focusing on amino acids, carbohydrates, fats, minerals and vitamins through each stage of the laying cycle. Our feed formulations are designed to provide the bird with the necessary energy for maintaining its general metabolism and for producing eggs of a desired profile using energy-yielding dietary components like carbohydrates, fats and protein. Having a clear understanding from the onset of lay on an egg profile, Corby Rock Mill can help tailor a feeding program suited to your requirements.

Corby Rock Mill have become established as a market leader in layers feeds due to our extensive knowledge and hands on approach with supporting poultry producers in not only supplying feeds but also technical support on farm. Our range of feeds cater for Commercial Colony, free range and barn systems, each designed to encapsulate the dietary requirements for each production system, enabling producers to be efficient in food conversation and obtaining key egg profiles and on farm performance.

Free Range Layers feeds

Corby Rocks Free Range Layers diets are formulated to meet higher requirements in energy and protein in ranging free range flocks. The diets are designed to optimise performance and meet the requirements for a larger egg profile than a standard commercial colony flock. Due to the ranging nature of free range flocks our free range diets contain higher levels of essential amino acids, which aid in developing constructive and protective tissues such as skin, feathers and bone matrixes to help build the birds core strengths for ranging efficiently while maintaining a desired egg profile.

The below diets should be fed to birds based on production, bodyweights, intakes and egg weight(mass).

Pre-Lay Meal
(Product code 11)

A Pre-Lay feed, higher in calcium than the grower, is needed to develop medullary bone reserves before the onset of egg production.Feed to birds from housing up to the point of lay. Other nutrients such as protein and energy are also higher than in the grower diet to build up body reserves before egg production.

Early Lay Meal 
(Product code 15)

A high energy diet ideal for the use in layer flocks prior to peak production. It will establish good egg size and egg numbers. Can be used pre-lay if birds are stressed or underweight. Contains high levels of Maize to act as an excellent energy source.

Free Range Stage 1
(Product code 12)

A ration formulated to meet the energy and protein requirements for hens coming into full production. It may be fed throughout the lay or changed to a step down diet as feed intakes increase. 16 weeks+

Free Range Stage 2
(Product code 13)

This is a follow on ration from the Free Range Stage 1, stepping down both the energy and protein levels to maintain good egg size and numbers due to feed intake increasing, as bird’s age. 40weeks+
