Unfortunately the mentioned copy of the leaflet/booklet couldn't be find online.

So I hope, that maybe someone here in the Forum knows it and could provide me a scan.

I found an online version of a book he edited, written by Edgar Briggs,  'Profits in Poultry Keeping Solved'.

Yes, I found this on Hathitrust aswell. But I think, that the Trafford-Sytem ist more "special" on long-term using laying hens.

PS: This page gives more impression about his laying-hen-system.

He promotes to keep the laying hens longer than two periods (as used to that time).

His idea, was to create a good management system to keep laying performance high

and reach consequently 1000 eggs per hen after four or  six periods.

Today the 500 peak can be reached after 100 weeks with a good management.
