South Africa: Hy-Line South Africa holds grand opening

Hy-Line South Africa opened their new hatchery in November in Parys in the Orange Free State, South Africa. The hatchery is a replacement for the old Blue Hills hatchery, which was in operation for more than 45 years. The opening was attended by Mr Joël Audefray, General Manager, ELD as well as Dr. Ian Rubinoff, Director of Global Technical Services for Hy-Line International.

More than 100 guests were taken through the hatchery process and then entertained by a “spit-braai” lunch.

The Hy-line Parys Hatchery is supplied with 30 PrimoTech PT12 single-stage high-performance setters and 10 VidaTech hatchers, along with control and alarm systems and ventilation equipment. All the equipment supplied has been designed for longevity and maximum energy efficiency, with the ventilation system directly recovering and recycling heat from the incubation process.
