LegLanger, a project that focuses on extending the production period of laying hens, in association with ILVO and Proefbedrijf Pluimveehouderij.
It is essential for poultry farmers to be able to predict, as far as possible in advance, the turning point at which production declines, so that the advantage of a longer cycle does not turn into a disadvantage.
Therefore, this project will determine the optimal duration to achieve the highest profitability by carrying out a cost-effectiveness analysis. This will also result in the development of an online calculation tool that indicates the expected optimal production age of a flock based on the submitted stable and animal data.
The project receives support from the Flemish Government and runs until the end of 2022.
