The Grower Range

Afbeelding: Marsdens grower bags

Following the Starter phase, Marsdens Early Grower is the next diet to be fed. 

Marsdens Early Grower is a 24% protein product and is designed to follow the Starter diet when feeding poults in the rearing field. With this in mind, the use of fishmeal is of prime importance. As birds are moved to the wood, the continued use of Early Grower will ensure continued strong growth during a particularly vulnerable time for the poults.

  • Pellets - 3.5mm form for pheasants, the preferred ‘one feed’ solution for use when the majority of birds being fed are partridges rather than pheasants. All 3.5mm pellets are short cut, therefore negating much need for 2.5mm
  • Mini-Pellets - 2mm mini-pellet form for partridges. 

As an alternative to the two-stage feed regime for pheasants, Marsdens produce Grower Pellets with 21% protein as a one-stage feed regime for pheasants at ‘wood’. 
Where the preferred option is to feed a 2.5mm pellet in the early stages this philosophy is extended by feeding a Game Rearer 2.5 followed by a Game Grower 2.5.

Following the first 2½ weeks of Early Grower, the birds should move on to a Covert Release Pellet. The Covert Release is a highly palatable feed containing aniseed, which by design helps to prevent birds from straying.

Things to consider: 

  1. At the start of any new season it is advisable to contact your vet to arrange a joint meeting.
  2. If at any time birds become unwell, contact your vet immediately. If any course of treatment is required only the Vet can advise a medication strategy.
  3. If in-feed medication is required, this can only be prescribed by the vet responsible, if required, please allow 5 working days delivery notice for any special mix requirement.
