Egg production is an important part of the poultry industry worldwide and in 2020 a total of 86.67 million metric tons of eggs were produced in the world. The egg production represented about 50% of the broiler meat production and required a feed input of about 200 million metric tonnes. The poultry layer market is interesting in that while China is by far the largest producer in the world with an annual output of 450 billion eggs it is dominated by numerous medium sized farms with less than 10 million layer birds.
The need to get laying birds to produce quality eggs more efficiently requires improvement of its health and nutritional status. Clearly the challenge of poultry layer farms is to have more cost efficient diets and improving the egg quality and productivity as well as extending the productive age of the hens while managing costs.
