Vitamins

The vitamin recommendations shown below include a safety margin. However, if the feed consumption is low due to heat stress or during the time of developing appetite between point of lay and peak egg production, the dietary vitamin content can be increased. This is most easily done by increasing the dietary addition of the vitamin premix (for example from 3 kg premix per 1000 kg diet to 3.75 kg premix per 1000 kg diet). Note that local regulations may limit the dietary content of individual vitamins, which, in turn, may limit how much 'extra' vitamin premix can be added to the diet.
