VILOFOSS® PeckStone for Poultry

QS-capable feed for more animal welfare                                           

     

       easy - effective - inexpensive - safe 

 

The new VILOFOSS® PECKStone for layers, broilers, geese and turkeys should be set up or hanged into the stable as "changeable" manipulable material (within the meaning of QS "Tierwohl" package). The PeckStone is approved for organic farming also among the guidelines of Bioland e.V.

 

Behavioural disorders such as feather pecking and cannibalism are effectively restricted
and prevented. At the same time, the beaks are worn off by the  PECKStone which significantly
reduces the risk of injury when animals peck each other.

 

 VILOFOSS® PECKStone 

 

The selected composition and structure guarantees a high level of acceptance at the animals. Likewise the "PECKStone" gives the animals the possibility of an individual additional intake of Ca, Mg, Na and trace elements. Thus, a healthy metabolism is supported and also the bone structure and plumage is improved.

 

The PECKStone has no negative effect on egg production, yolk colour or fattening.

How to set up/ hang up/ split manipulable material

 

 

The Peckstone should be set up and stored in a covered area. The stones

can be left in the bowl, plunged from the bowl and placed directly on the floor or on top of the upturned bowl. Also hanging is possible, which is especially interesting for the turkey husbandry. For this purpose, a special hanging element has been developed which is also available.

Based on our experience and feedback of our customers,
we recommend one PECKStone:

 

  • each 500 to 800 layers and turkeys
  • each 1.000 broilers

 

 

 

Hanging the VILOFOSS®Peckstone with hanging element at activity height for turkeys, guarantee a high level of acceptance.
