Hy-Line celebrates 80th anniversary with W-80 variety
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. The 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 provides producers promising 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 kilogrammes per bird yearly 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."
