A new formula from Purina is promising to provide additional energy and immunity to meat chickens, ducks, turkeys, geese and mixed flocks. Purina’s Flock Raiser Crumbles is a complete feed that now includes prebiotics, probiotics and yeast as well as the extra energy needed for a healthy mixed flock.
“Meat birds, mixed flocks and show birds require different nutrients than birds raised only for egg laying,” says Mikelle Roeder, Ph.D., a flock nutrition expert with Purina Animal Nutrition. “Along with vitamins, minerals and ingredients for immunity, protein is especially important, because it supports healthy plumage, bird growth and contributes to overall meat quality.”
“We recently updated the recipe of Purina® Flock Raiser® Crumbles to help flock raisers provide a balanced, complete feed to their meat birds, show birds, turkeys, ducks and geese,” Roeder adds. “This new formula supports healthy growth so you can best enjoy raising a mixed flock.”
“We are proud to introduce the enhanced recipe of Purina® Flock Raiser® Crumbles to our line of premium poultry feeds,” says Jodi Eineichner, backyard flock marketing manager with Purina Animal Nutrition. “Because no backyard flock is the same, our team of flock raisers and researchers continually strives to provide optimal feeds for all birds so flock raisers can best enjoy their happy, healthy flocks.”
The Flock Raiser Crumbles formula is a simple vegetarian recipe made from freshly-ground North American grains that brings a balance of vitamins and minerals to support bone health and bird growth. More information is available through Purina retailers.
