US - Hy-Line International, the world leader in layer poultry genetics, marked a significant milestone at the 2016 IPPE in Atlanta, Georgia, USA – 80 years of providing genetic excellence to the layer industry.
During the expo, Hy-Line unveiled its new variety, appropriately named the W-80. It is a robust white egg layer for all housing systems and environments. Additionally, the company hosted a customer appreciation dinner to celebrate the anniversary during the first evening of the expo.
During the dinner, Jonathan Cade, president of Hy-Line International, thanked the dedicated distributors, noting how they have played a major role in the company’s success.
He then presented anniversary plaques to the distributors in attendance celebrating from 10-year to 35-year partnerships with Hy-Line in 2016.
“No other layer genetics company in the industry can match this achievement of longevity – celebrating eight decades of success,” said Jonathan Cade, president of Hy-Line International. “It is our privilege to serve our customers and the global egg industry.”
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.
