Ningxia Xiaoming Agriculture & Animal Husbandry Co., Ltd, a Hy-Line distributor in China for the past sevenyears, is expanding hatchery capacity in its Henan Lankao location this year. The hatchery, outfitted with hatchers and setters imported from Europe with the most up-to-date technology, will increase its annual capacity by 30 million chicks. Currently, Xiaoming Agriculture hatches 50 million chicks annually. At full capacity, the company, as a whole, will produce 80 million female day-old chicks. This hatchery capacity is among the largest in the world.
