The Hy-Line Red Book, an Online Management Guide, has its roots in the Hy-Line Red Book, Management and Disease Control Book, which was published many years ago. The original Red Book contained detailed information about management and health of Hy-Line's laying hens and was in a folder-format with loose sheets of paper that could be replaced when updated.

The Red Book was eventually replaced by individual printed management guides for each of Hy-Line's varieties of laying hens. Today, these guides are now formatted as Performance Standards Manuals and are updated every 3 years. Included in the Performance Standards Manuals is specific production information as well as nutrition recommendations for that individual Hy-Line commercial layer variety. 
As management information is generally applicable to all Hy-Line varieties, the Hy-Line Red Book, an Online Management Guide, is designed to provide the recommended practices to successfully raise Hy-Line commercial layers.

The last printed Hy-Line Red Book was published in 1982.

The Hy-Line Red Book, an Online Management Guide, has a more user-friendly format. This change allows you to print or save as a pdf - either a specific section or the entire guide.
