Hy-Line International, a leading player in layer poultry genetics, recently started a new partnership with Srinivasa Hatcheries Group (SH Group) to distribute Hy-Line commercial layers throughout India.

The latter will supply day-old chicks from its Hderabad-based flagship company, Srinivasa Farms Pvt Ltd. The Tamil Nadu-based Hy-Line Layers Private Ltd will continue to oversee the production and distribution of parent stock.

“We see the enormous potential of genetically-superior Hy-Line layers to feed the growing population of India an inexpensive source of protein through a partnership with the SH Group,” said Jonathan Cade, president, Hy-Line International.

“They have earned a reputation of being one of the best poultry breeding companies adopting international standards of quality, hygiene and efficiency,” he added.

The company was founded by C Jagapati Rao and K Somi Reddy, and had a modest beginning of 6,000 layer parents between 1978 and 1979. Over the years, it has grown to the stage where it has 4,00,000 layer parent stock.

SH Group is a highly accomplished business conglomerate with diverse commercial businesses and presence across multiple sectors, such as poultry breeding, poultry and animal feed and food retail.

Founded in 1936 by Henry A Wallace, Hy-Line was the first poultry breeding company to apply the principles of hybridisation to commercial layer breeding.

Today, it continues to be a pioneer, as the first company with its own in-house molecular genetics team leading the industry in application of DNA-based technology to its breeding and genetics programme.

Hy-Line produces and sells both brown and white egg stock to more than 120 countries worldwide, and is the largest selling player in the American egg industry and around the world.
