As an organic egg producer, we are strongly focused on animal welfare and to provide our hens with the best possible conditions.
Please find below the latest video showing the surroundings and the life of our organic egg layers. Enjoy!
At Månsson we have white feathered egg layers. This type of hen is well suited for organic farming since it is robust and it is finely coping with the many weather changes that characterize the Danish climate. They are also very stable in laying eggs, and works really well in our free range production system.
Our hens do have a nice and quiet behaviour, and they are curious by nature. Hens are originally forest birds, and therefore we keep all our free-range areas as a wood, planted with willow and poplar trees. Here the hens feel safe and seek shelter for birds of prey. It is a pleasure every day to see how the hens go out and enjoy themselves in small groups under the trees.
Forage provide healthy and happy hens
Besides the ample space both indoors and outdoors, the hens get lots of homegrown organic forage every day. The roughage consists of clover, pea/barley, pea/lupine and corn. Roughage helps to activate the hens, and give them good and healthy digestion.
Experiments with organic farming
We often participate in different experiments and studies in relation to organic farming.
Månsson has been an egg producer since 1981 – and converted into organic egg production in 1998.
Today (2021) there is more than 230.000 organic egg layers, producing in total appr. 60 Mio. organic eggs per year. The eggs are distributed to the wholesaler DAVA Foods.
