UK: Hy-Line UK Customer Featured in The Ranger Magazine
Alex Woollam and his family continue to choose the Hy-Line Brown for free-range production in the UK. The Ranger Magazine, published by the British Free Range Egg Producers Association, is the leading publication for free-range production information in the UK.
In the words of Shropshire producer Alex Woollam, “we all want a low maintenance bird,” and Alex believes he has found it in the Hy-Line Brown.
Alex entered the sector in 2005 with 16,000 birds on a flat-deck system, recognizing the potential free-range egg production offered in the way of a viable diversification for the family farm. Since that time, the flock has grown to 94,000 birds all housed in multi-tier systems. In that time, Alex has tried several breeds and continues to do so, but Hy-Line is his number one choice and the current flock consists of 30,000 standard Hy-Line Brown and 32,000 Hy-Line Brown Plus.
“With some breeds the slightest stress, not enough fiber in the ration, lights too bright, temperature swings, etc., and they will start to pull feathers and it's very hard to stop,” says Alex. “We have used lorry loads of lucerne on other flocks but we’ve found the Hy-Line doesn’t need any of this and they seem quite happy with whatever life throws at them. Once you lose feathers its terrible for the bird and the financials - feed consumption goes up as does mortality and egg quality deteriorates dramatically. Basically, a high maintenance bird will leave you penniless - this doesn’t happen with Hy-Line.”
Alex believes that it’s the breed’s ability to cope with challenges that results in exceptional livability. “Hy-Line appears to be genetically more resistant to IB viruses, and anyone who has had them knows that sub-two percent whole flock mortality is very achievable. This has a big impact on financials as it means you have a full house paying for their seats!”
