Marsdens starter bags - ForFarmers UK

The Starter Stage

We have made significant investment in our starter range. No matter how good the diet formulation is, ease of consumption and digestibility is invaluable for game birds at hatching. Marsdens has invested in updates to our crumbling and sieving machines to ensure a consistent and quality product.

  • It’s critical for each chick to feed as soon as possible, and every gram counts in supporting the healthy growth and development of the bird.
  • Marsdens starter feeds are formulated from the finest raw materials to provide a dense and balanced diet across all of the product textures offered – from the smallest crumb up to a full pellet, every particle is a complete nutritional package.
  • Sustainably sourced fishmeal is a key feature of our starter range, where intake is low and nutrient density needs to be high!
