This test is conducted under the auspices of the North Carolina Layer Performance and Management Program, Cooperative Extension Service at North Carolina State University and the North Carolina Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services. 

The purpose of this program is to assist the poultry industry in the USA  and internationally in the evaluation of most of the commercial layer stocks and management systems which are on the market today. The data presented represent the analysis of the first production cycle and molt of the 38th Performance and Management Test (Cage Production). Performance summary tables are available for each strain, and molt treatment.

The results can be downloaded from the NC State University website.
