US - Hy-Line International, the world leader in layer poultry genetics, hosted nearly 60 egg industry leaders in April at its research and development campus in Dallas Center, Iowa.
The conference rooms were alive with questions, as participants learned about Hy-Line’s advances in molecular genetics and genetic selection from Hy-Line’s research and development team. They also saw Hy-Line’s Egg Quality Laboratory in action.
“We were honored to host leaders of the egg industry to share and discuss Hy-Line’s innovations in poultry genetics,” said Jonathan Cade, president of Hy-Line International.
This tour was offered as part of the Egg Industry Center’s 7th Annual Egg Industry Leadership Forum in Des Moines, Iowa.
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.
