Poultry genetics company Hubbard has developed the Hubbard M22 male.

The new line was developed by Hubbard’s research and development department in response to customer demand and through intensified selection work focused on broiler yield and conformation.

The highly competitive Hubbard M22 builds upon the performance and feed conversion rate (FCR) advantages offered by Hubbard’s existing male lines such as the Hubbard M99 optimized for total yield and market-leading FCR, while producing more than 1 to 1.5 percent additional breast meat yield.

Hubbard’s integration of scanner technology into selection programs has accelerated genetic advances which better enable Hubbard’s geneticists to focus on specific criteria such as breast meat yield and conformation.
