Plant meal improves eggshell quality

Heat stress and age are common causes of reduced egg shell quality and incur large economic losses in the Indian poultry industry. A number of plants are known to contain high levels of metabolically active vitamin D3. Studies have shown that under adverse conditions, these can be useful in reducing the egg shell quality problems associated with age.
