Helen’s Best Layer Mash 

Available in a 25lb or 50lb bag. 

This feed is designed to be fed to laying hens. 

Helen Kruse, wife of O.H. Kruse Grain & Milling’s founder Otto Kruse, always kept a flock of chickens in the backyard to produce fresh meat and eggs for her family. Helen wanted only the best for her growing family and was insistent that Otto only use the healthiest, natural ingredients in all of the feed that his company made, since that was the feed she fed to the animals that were producing the food the Kruse family consumed. Helen’s Best Poultry Feed is our tribute to Helen Kruse and her insistence that we only produce the healthiest poultry feed possible, from our family to yours.

Feeding Instructions:

Feed free choice as the sole ration. Keep feeders about ½ full at all times. Feed should be fresh and feeders clean to help avoid disease. Supplemental grit and oyster shell may be provided if birds are confined to a cage. Grit helps in feed digestion and the oyster shell provides additional calcium for stronger egg shells. Provide plenty of fresh, clean water at all times. Layers should receive about 16 to 17 hours of light per day for optimum laying potential.
