Snp Chip

New Developed Chip Improves Accuracy

The new SNP chip, developed by Hendrix Genetics Research & Technology Centre, allows us to quicker respond to fast changing demands and make our genetic selection procedures more efficient. The main advantage of this chip is that it is more suited to the specific genetic make-up of the genetics of the layer division of Hendrix Genetics. All chickens in the genomic selection program will now be genotyped with this new chip.

Our strategy is founded on four strategic pillars

Four Strategic Pillars

To fulfill our mission and to realize our full potential, Hendrix Genetics is inspired to be the global leader in animal breeding. With this goal in mind, we have developed a strategy founded on strengthening four key pillars of our business:

Animal Breeding: selecting the best animals with computer based models

Animal Breeding

Animal breeding or genetics is the area of science where experts are trying to steer the frequency of certain genes by combining the most superior or desired inidividual animals to be the parents of the next generation. This process is focused on getting improved offspring who are on average better than the previous generation. Statistical models are used to compute the differences between animals and predict the genetic value of their offspring.  Information and data from all types of measurements contribute to increasingly more reliable breeding values. On the whole the science and practice of animal breeding has been a major contributing factor to the improvement made in livestock production.
