The 2023 Ildex Poultry Show showcases an Eggceptional Flock of Laying Hens in the Philippines

From June 7 to June 9, Hendrix Genetics proudly participated together with our distributors in the Philippines at the 2023 ILDEX Show, offering our support and technical expertise throughout the event. The feedback that we received from the Philippines market regarding our layer genetics has been incredibly positive. Numerous farmers expressed their satisfaction with the exceptional technical performance and impressive egg production of the various Hendrix Genetics' laying hen breeds.

We are thrilled to announce the latest addition to the prestigious Dekalb 500 egg club: Pilmico Farms. Their 13D-2105 flock, born in the spring of 2021, consisted of nearly 43,600 Dekalb White laying hens. These hens were able to achieve the production of 500 eggs per hen housed at 100 weeks of age. During the Ildex event, we congratulated Pilmico Animal Nutrition Corporation, the first commercial company in Asia to achieve the Premium Performance of 500 eggs within 100 weeks.

Heritage Veterinary Corporation delivered the Dekalb White chicks in May 2021 and naturally were fed Pilmico Feeds from growing to laying. Hellmann and SKOV were the chosen cage and ventilation systems respectively. The outstanding dedication of the Pilmico team to efficiency and performance played a crucial role in this remarkable accomplishment. We extend our gratitude to everyone who contributed to this success.

Dr. Serge M. Tan, Assistant Vice President for Poultry Operations at Pilmico, expressed his delight with the outcome, stating, "We are overjoyed by this achievement and remain grateful to Heritage Veterinary Corporation and Dekalb for their unwavering support over the years. With the remarkable success of reaching 500 eggs per hen housed, our future plans will now focus on extended laying cycles, depleting flocks at wk100. Perhaps this accomplishment will open doors for potential business synergies in the future!"

Henry Hendrix, Sales Manager at Hendrix Genetics, shared his thoughts, saying, "It is truly inspiring to witness industry leaders collaborating and achieving such remarkable results with our Layer breeders. We hope this success serves as an inspiration for others, emphasizing the importance of joint efforts in enhancing flock performance and efficiency, this flock of Dekalb Whites at Pilmico Farm, clearly shows that the genetic potential is there!"

Once again, we wholeheartedly congratulate Pilmico and Heritage on this outstanding accomplishment. It further highlights the immense value that Hendrix Genetics layers bring to egg producers in the Philippines and all over the world.”
