The need for strong healthy bones

Leg weakness and rickets are not only animal welfare issues, but also have a negative impact on performance. Rickets often occurs in fast-growing animals while older laying hens are prone to developing leg weakness. 

The challenge of a healthy skeleton

Skeletal diseases in general lead to lameness, and in turn poor growth or even starvation as the birds are no longer able to move to the source of feed. 

Downgrading at market or even carcass condemnations can also result.  

The solution to healthy bones

A number of vitamins and minerals are responsible for bone stability. Vitamin D, calcium and phosphorous are well-known for their contribution to good bone strength, but they cannot do it alone! Magnesium, zinc, manganese, copper and vitamin K must also be part of the equation. 

The Lovit range by Kaesler Nutrition includes a number of products for application via drinking water to make sure there are no bone issues in your poultry house. Lovit: easy to use, fast-acting, targeted support. Contact us to find the right solution for your needs.
