Evaluation of Factors Affecting Productivity and Profitability of Lohmann Brown Layers in A Semi-Arid Environment
Overall, age of birds, average temperature, humidity and photoperiod were strongly correlated with mean egg weight, and thus the profitability of the egg-producing enterprise at a farm in central Namibia, designated Farm A. Expand
