US - Hy-Line International celebrated a ground-breaking of the Perry Pedigree Hatchery being built in Perry, Iowa, in September.

The new facility will be used to produce pedigree and grandparent stock used in Hy-Line's advanced genetic development programme.

Dr Doug Grieve, President, explained: "We are dedicating this independent hatchery for our pedigree and higher level generations to ensure the strictest biosecurity standards of the industry are met. This investment will advance Hy-Line International’s commitment for delivering the highest quality breeding stock to our customers."

Perry Mayor Jay Pattee and Rich Jones of Perry Industries also spoke of the impressive cooperation between the city of Perry, Dallas County, State of Iowa and utility development officials in developing the plans for the project, which is slated to be completed by February 2012.

Dr Antonio Paraguassu, Hy-Line International Global Director of Production, added: "This project is an important part of our on-going quality improvement program to ensure a continuous supply of chicks for our Research and Development Department, as well as supplying our grandparent stock to our breeder multiplier locations around the world."
