Broiler Starter/Grower Crumble

MainFeeds Broiler Starter/Grower crumbles are formulated to meet the nutrient requirements of meat birds from 1 to 28 days of age.

Feeding Recommendations

MainFeeds Starter/Grower Crumble should be fed ad lib. It can be fed in conjunction with scratch wheat or household scraps.  If alternative ingredients are being fed, the amount should not exceed 50% of the diet, otherwise the birds will not be receiving the quantities of protein, vitamins and mineral required for healthy growth.

If the birds are running free range, shutting them up for the last two weeks will allow them to fatten.  Do not feed them 24 hours before slaughter.

Self feeders protected from the rain and wind, are a good method of feeding the birds.

It is important to have fresh, clean drinking water available at all times. Place water away from the feed to minimise spillage and dampness.


Grains, grain by-products, plant proteins, animal proteins, animal fats, vegetable oils, minerals, amino acids, a specialised vitamin/trace mineral premix and the coccidiostat Rumensin Mill Mix 20% as an aid in the prevention of coccidiosis.
