Hy-Line International, the world leader in layer poultry genetics, marked a significant milestone at the 2016 IPPE in Atlanta, Ga. – 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 Cade. “It is our privilege to serve our customers and the global egg industry.”
