Optimal laying capacity and minimum breakage rates are important factors which contribute to the success of egg farms. On average, around 7 percent of eggs produced fail to reach their final destination intact. These losses can be significantly reduced by supplementing the diet with carefully selected calcium preparations.

Latest trials have confirmed that providing an adequate supply of calcium is not enough; it is also important to ensure that the source of calcium is readily available in the intestine. PreAcid from Dr. Eckel contains a unique combination of calcium, prebiotic substances and organic acids which helps improve nutrient uptake.

Recent trials with PreAcid from the performance product range showed a significant rise in laying capacity and simultaneous reduction in egg breakage rates. These results impressively demonstrate once again the direct effects of carefully tailored nutritional supplements on farm yields.
