Heat Prostration Loss at an Egg Layer Barn

Heat Prostration Loss at an Egg Layer Barn

Failed ventilation inside an egg laying barn led to the death of an entire flock of hens. To help quantify the damages, MDD reviewed the number of eggs produced per hen on a weekly basis, the typical size and grade of the eggs, at what point in the flock cycle the hens died and how long the farm had to wait for the next flock to come into the barn. MDD also factored in a premium price upon learning that these hens produced omega-3 rich eggs. MDD then reviewed saved expenses such as feed to arrive at the total damages incurred.
