Hy-Line hosts tour for egg industry leaders

Layer poultry genetics company, Hy-Line International, hosted nearly 60 egg industry leaders in April at its research and development campus in Dallas Center, Iowa. The tour was offered as part of the Egg Industry Center’s 7th Annual Egg Industry Leadership Forum.

Molecular genetics and genetic selection discussed during the tour

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.

Jonathan Cade, president of Hy-Line International said"We were honoured to host leaders of the egg industry to share and discuss Hy-Line's innovations in poultry genetics."

Founded in 1936 by Henry A. Wallace, Hy-Line was the first poultry breeding company to apply the principles of hybridisation to commercial layer breeding. 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.
