New hatchery: Hy-line Mexico selects Pas Reform

Hy-line Mexico has selected Pas Reform's modular Smart incubation technologies for the development of a brand new hatchery in Mexico.

With continuing growth in the layer sector, Hy-line Mexico’s success with the Hy-line W36 has prompted the development of the new hatchery at Yahualica, Jalisco Mex., which will produce 300,000 day-old pullets per week.

The new hatchery, due for completion later this year, will be fitted with 18 Pas Reform SmartSet™setters, each capable of holding 115,200 eggs, 18 SmartHatch™ hatchers, and complete ventilation and hatchery automation systems.

“Mexico remains a buoyant and growing market,” says Jose Antonio Gonzalez Franco, general manager of Hy-line Mexico, “and nonetheless competitive. We look forward to putting Smart Technologies to work in the new hatchery, to help us maintain that position of quality and leadership.”
