Laying hens eat complete and balanced food. Nutrition experts design diets that provide the energy and needed nutrients for the normal functioning of the body and the formation of the egg. For this, natural ingredients are selected and combined using the right amount and proportion, in order to ensure the hen’s intestinal health and well-being, as well as the quality of the egg, without forgetting the commitment to the environment.
With the aim of facilitating the transfer of knowledge on animal welfare to the livestock and pet sectors, to the biotechnology industry and to zoological institutions, researchers from the behavioral and animal welfare group have created AWEC, a company owned by the UAB and emerged from the Nutrition and Animal Welfare Service (SNiBA) of the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, based in the UAB Research Park.
