Srinivasa Farms, the industry leader in poultry breeding announces the extension of its strategic partnership with Hy-Line International, the world leader in layer poultry genetics into Karnataka. Through this partnership, Srinivasa Group will distribute Hy-Line commercial layers (W-80 Commercial layer bird) throughout Karnataka. The Hy-Line W-80 is a robust white egg layer for all housing systems and environments. This bird delivers prolific egg numbers, excellent eggshell strength, and strong performance under challenging environments and low-density feed rations.
The W-80 is adaptable to alternative production systems and remains calm for easy management. For markets requiring a larger egg size, the W-80 Plus gives producers the same great traits with an egg weight profile two grams heavier.
Its persistence for long single-cycle lay means more eggs on five grams less feed. Producers gain more profitability with a feed savings of approximately two kilograms per bird per year versus competing brands

This partnership is seeing breakthrough results and beating performance standards through excellent customer service and technical assistance down south. Srinivasa Farms & Hy-line International are now ready to extend this association into North India aiming for bigger success
