GLOBAL - Addition of W-80 allows Hy-Line to offer a bird for every market

Hy-Line International, the world leader in layer poultry genetics, kicks-off its 80th Anniversary celebration by introducing a new variety – the W-80.

Appropriately named for the company’s milestone, the W-80 is a robust white egg layer for all housing systems and environments. This bird delivers prolific egg numbers, excellent egg shell strength, and strong performance under challenging environments and low-density feed rations.

The W-80 is adaptable to alternative production systems and remains calm for easy management. For markets requiring a larger egg size, the W-80 Plus gives producers the same great traits with an egg weight profile two grams heavier.

Its persistency for long single-cycle lay means more eggs on five grams less feed. Producers gain more profitability with a feed savings of approximately two kilograms per bird per year versus competing brands.

“With the addition of the W-80, we are proud to say Hy-Line delivers a bird for every market,” said Jonathan Cade, president of Hy-Line International. “I can think of no better way to celebrate 80 years of genetic excellence than to give our customers a choice of birds that will thrive in their climate, their housing system and their country. The W-36, Brown, Silver Brown, Sonia, and now the W-80 allow customers to provide what their market requires.”
