Egg producers in Thailand were interested to learn about the benefits of increasing resilience in laying hens with the gut agility activator Anco FIT Poultry. A seminar organized by Protech Animal Health co. ltd, Anco distributor in Thailand, was well attended.
Dr. Sasitorn Tungkanasing, product manager at Betagro comments: “We were happy to see such great interest in the gut agility concept from Anco. It gives us confidence for our plans in 2020. We are now following up with the leads from this event and looking forward to be a source of help to them to support laying persistence for more profitable egg production.”
The event included a presentation from Professor Dr. Theerawit Poeikhampam, Faculty of Agriculture Kasetsart University on Management and feeding techniques for laying hens in the summer season.
Michael Eder, managing director at Anco, introduced the science behind Anco FIT Poultry and practical experience with applying the product to laying hen diets. The data in his presentation demonstrated how Anco FIT Poultry can benefit laying hens in the critical early laying period and can help to sustain higher egg production in the later stages of egg production.
Thailand is the third biggest producer of hen and duck eggs in Southeast Asia, after Indonesia and Malaysia. Thai consumers prefer brown eggs, so brown laying hen breeds are predominantly used as the breed of choice for commercial egg production in Thailand.
