COUNTRY LAYERS PELLETS & MEAL 20kg - 16% PROTEIN, 5% FIBRE, 0.34% METHIONINE
Country Layers pellets and meal provide a complete feed for free range laying birds. Traditional quality ingredients are used to make a 3mm pellet or a coarsely ground meal. Calcium is added to provide strong shells, together with all the necessary minerals and vitamins for a healthy bird.
