We were delighted to be featured in the February edition of Ranger Magazine, with a 4-page spread titled, “Size matters: balancing bird welfare with the public’s taste for large eggs”.
In part three of our series, Flock Focus, we re-join Fred Powell and his family with their first flock in Mid Wales. Our last visit to Fred’s farm saw egg production underway, with 32,000 pullets reared by Humphrey Feed & Pullets in his new multi-tier Big Dutchman shed. The birds are now 51 weeks of age, and production is excellent.
In part two of our series, Flock Focus, we re-join the Powell family in their first year of egg production, with the birds now in lay at their new free range set up in Mid Wales.
In our new series, we follow the progress of Welsh farmers Fred & Janet Powell over the course of 2017 as they and their family undertake a new venture - becoming free range egg producers.
