KYRGYZSTAN - Hy-Line has begun sales in the region through Three T of Kyrgyzstan.

The poultry industry in the Central Asian country of Kyrgyzstan flourished during the years of soviet rule but after the country's independence in 1991, economic hardship followed and the poultry industry in Kyrgyzstan became practically non-existent.

In 1998, a group of entrepreneurs sought out to revive the poultry industry in Kyrgyzstan and established a poultry breeding centre known as Three T. In the following nine years, under the direction of Vladimir Melnikov, Three T achieved market share throughout the region delivering day-old chicks and hatching eggs throughout Kyrgyzstan, and exporting to Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan. During this period of growth, they also modernised their facilities and now have well-equipped facilities for rearing and laying parent stock and is also a commercial production center.

In 2006, Three T became interested in expanding their market share throughout the region and looked to Hy-Line International for support. During the next three years, Three T representatives learned more about Hy-Line genetics by visiting Hy-Line production centres in the United Kingdom and the United States and attending the Hy-Line International technical service school in June 2009. During that same year, Three T signed an exclusive distributorship agreement to sell Hy-Line varieties in Kyrgyzstan.

Tymofey Kavun, owner and general director of Three T, said: "Hy-Line International is a company that is able to bring Three T to the highest level in the industry. By delivering Hy-Line chicks to our customers we will provide not only superior quality chicks, but also excellent technical support that will assist in the high economic profits of Hy-Line birds."

The first shipment of Hy-Line Brown parent stock was delivered from Hy-Line production facilities in the UK in August 2009. This month, Three T will begin selling more than one million commercial chicks throughout the region, with plans to increase their production in the near future.
