In 2009 Schothorst Feed Research (SFR) organised a symposium about the extended laying period. At that moment, it was stated that we would keep laying hens until 100 weeks of age with 500 eggs per bird in 2020. Now it is 2020, and indeed we are able to keep hens until 100 weeks of age. Therefore we would like to organise a seminar on the same topic as ten years ago, to discuss what it brought us and which challenges we still have to face.
Like in 2009, we will consider genetics, egg quality, performance, health, economics, and latest research performed at SFR.
The seminar will be organised on Thursday 1 October 2020. If the situation regarding Covid-19 will not change, we will meet in Ampt van Nijkerk. Of course this will be according the Dutch regulations regarding Covid-19.
We will also provide a live streaming of the seminar for everybody who is not able to travel or not able to meet face-to-face. During the live stream it will be possible to ask questions through a live chat.
