    DescriptionLaying hens whose blood is richer in natural antibodies have better immunity to diseases. This was revealed by the PhD research Tom Berghof carried out at the Adaptation Physiology and Animal Breeding and Genetics groups. He expects that farms will be able to use this knowledge to breed hens with better natural immunity.
