Here's profitable advice to poultrymen, "If eggs are your business, make Hy-Line your chick." Year-after-year, Hy-Line layers give you consistent top-level performance. For proof, see the results of the latest Iowa Multiple Unit Poultry Test, supervised by the Iowa Poultry Improve- tnent Supervisory Board. Sixteen well-known U. S. breeders entered their best birds. Not just 50 or 100 pullets! The Iowa test ending in 1960 involved 950 pullet chicks per entry—each tested at 4 different farms in the state. For the past three years, Hy-Line layers have led all entries in this most important test. Again this year, Hy-Line 934 Series layers gave the best "all around" performance. The small, thrifty Hy-Line layer tied for 'the smallest body weight in the test, a big feed-saving factor. Yet, when compared to the average of all entries, the Hy-Line 934 Series layer averaged: 42 more eggs per pullet housed ... 1 Ib. heavier egg weight per case ... less than half the laying house mortality. This advantage earned Hy-Line 934 Series layers the top performance index of 4.51 which was 1.44 higher than the average of all competing layers. The "performanea index" is calculated from body weight, egg production, egg weight, and laying house livability. Roughly, the "performance index" measures the difference in incoma over feed cost per bird between the entries even though actual income and cost records were not kept. For three years in a row, Hy-Line entries have produced the top perfprmance index in the Iowa Multiple Unit Poultry Test. Consistent, year-after-year performanca gives poultrymen top profit opportunities. So "If eggs are your business, make^ Hy-Line your chick." Put Hy-Line 934 Series chicks under your brooder next spring, in your laying house next fall. Reap increased profits with Hy-Line 934 Series layers.
