“Our distributors are our direct link to the end-user of Hy-Line layers. We saw this as a great opportunity to work with them to achieve the highest chick quality while optimizing their hatchery efficiency,” said Thomas Dixon, sales and marketing director for 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.
