Feed and feeding are vital in livestock farming. Generally, the cost of feeding is over 70% of the total cost of production. So if you’re thinking of raising and keeping layers or pullets for commercial egg production, it is imperative for you to know how much you will spend in feeding pullets from day 1 to week 72.

To use this tool, you don’t need to do anything other than key in the number of pullets you intend to raise and the current prices of feed. Then click CALCULATE. Other things will be done for you automatically by the Layer Feed Calculator.
