Hy-Line China JV to build 60-million-chick hatchery in Chongqing

25.11.2016

Chinese layer breeder Huayu Agricultural Technology Co, in which Hy-Line International holds a 55% stake, said it will build a hatchery with annual capacity of 60 million chicks in Fengdu County in the southwest municipality of Chongqing. Initial investment will be USD 51 million, while a parent stock farm and a feedmill are also in the pipeline.

Separately, Huayu, which is based in north China’s Hebei province, said it has won an order from CP Chongqing to supply one million Hy-Line Gray chicks in 2017. Data from the China Animal Agriculture Association shows that Huayu imported 75,740 Hy-Line GP stock from Spain in the first three quarters of 2016, approximately one third of the country’s total GP imports. China has banned US poultry imports from 2015.
