Findings from our USDA SARE grant study on the practice of feeding food scraps to hens in an active composting system

Hey everybody, we are so pleased to share this manual on feeding food scraps to laying hens in an active composting system! This project was funded by USDA SARE. We hope this contributes to a growing knowledge base on the practice and are excited to be working with some of you on new projects building off of this. This is a practice with proven promise, as shown by our data and supported by our technical advisor, Dr. Michael Darre, UConn Poultry Specialist. There's plenty left to do in terms of refining and optimizing it, but this project has at the very least validated it.
