Abstract [en]

The purpose of this report was to compare Lilluns egg production with other Swedish egg producers based on the flow of nutrients (nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium) in the egg production systems. The main focus in the report was the utilization rate of the forage and the excess of nutrients per kg egg. Additionally, the purpose was to identify the environmental impact from Lilluns egg production and compare the results with other egg producers. The inflow of nutrients associated with forage and poultry was compared with the nutrients that were exported from the production. All of the egg producers in this study had an excess of nutrients. The utilization rate of the forage for Lilluns egg was 47 %, the other egg producers in this study had an utilization rate between 45-50 %. The results showed that Lilluns egg had an excess of nitrogen of 0,04 kg/kg eggs. Lilluns egg also had an excess of phosphorus and potassium. The excess of phosphorus was 0,01 kg/kg eggs and 0,013 kg/kg eggs for potassium. The results showed that all the egg producers in this study had an excess of all the nutrients. The conclusion is that the egg production systems in this study have a similar utilization rate and the excess of nutrients per kg egg was also similar for all the egg producers.
