First hatch a success!

The first hatch out of the newest Hendrix Genetics turkey hatchery was a success!

Our team recently oversaw the first hatch from our new parent stock hatchery in Beatrice, Nebraska. This parent stock hatchery has a 6.6 million egg capacity, serving clients across the Midwest USA, and was opened this past October

Hybrid experts were on hand to supervise all steps of the delivery process. After transport, sales and technical representative Gary Hall was on site to ensure successful poult placement. 

We are happy to close out 2017 with a report on latest progress. Overall this first hatch represents an important milestone in providing the US industry with a pipeline of high quality turkey genetics.

I am very proud of the hard work of our new team. The bar has been set and we will continue to push for the best quality poults to come from this hatchery.
