The celebration took place in Handan in China’s Hebei Province with 500 participants, including local and provincial government officials. This hatchery has a production capacity of 60 million female commercial chicks annually.

“I congratulate the Huayu team, headed by its president, Mr. Lianzeng Wang, for their vision of the changing demands and even leading the change in the China layer market,” said Jonathan Cade, President of Hy-Line International.

The hatchery equipment, design, construction and biosecurity are world-class. The facility includes an international training and conference centre, which hosted the 2018 International Layer Industry Innovation Summit in conjunction with the grand opening celebration.

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.
