The critical age objectives for Parent Stock are summarized below for your convenience:

Age Key Objectives

3-28 days Achievement of target bodyweights at 7, 14, 21 and 28 days
28 days Grade. Target is < 12 CV% at 28 days to permit 2 way grading

56-70 days Stabilize populations to achieve correct incremental growth
70 days Re-draw bodyweight targets (if required)
70-105 days Achieve correct incremental growth

105-140 days Achieve correct incremental growth
140-154 days Give first light increase
