Hy-Line International, the world leader in layer poultry genetics, brought together its growing number of distributors for Asia in March in beautiful Pattaya, Thailand to share strategic management methods for optimal breeder performance and superior results.
More than 100 participants took part in the Hy-Line Asian Technical Seminar for two days of intensive training, marking Hy-Line’s increased market share in the region.
An emerging region
Hy-Line has achieved increased market share in the region due to the prolific egg numbers, feed efficiency, exceptional livability and superior egg color and quality of its layers. They lead the way in a part of the world that accounts for more than 63% of the world’s egg production by offering layer farmers a greater opportunity to make more profit.
A product for each market
With the Hy-Line Brown, W-36, W-80, Silver Brown and Sonia, Hy-Line delivers a bird for every market – every climate, every housing system, every country. The participants heard presentations on nutrition, lighting, disease management, breeder management, global markets and trends, and worldwide results of Hy-Line layers. This information was provided by Hy-Line Technical Services team members and industry guest speakers.
“Our distributors are our direct link to the farmers choosing Hy-Line layers. This was a great opportunity to share knowledge to achieve the highest chick quality while optimizing their efficiency,” said Jonathan Cade, president of Hy-Line International.
Founded in 1936 by Henry A. Wallace, Hy-Line was the first poultry breeding company to apply the principles of hybridization to commercial layer breeding. Today, Hy-Line International continues to be a pioneer as the first company with its own in-house molecular genetics team leading the industry in application of DNA-based technology to its breeding and genetics program. Hy-Line produces and sells both brown and white egg stock to more than 120 countries worldwide and is the largest selling layer in the American egg industry and around the world.
