On the show today we’re talking about breeding traits! Sound boring? Well keep listening, because we’ve brought in Meyer Hatchery’s Breed Flock Manager, Alex to share her expansive knowledge on how to select the best traits, along with answering some of the questions you asked on social media. This includes things like that tricky blue gene, if there’s really a difference between hatchery broilers and how we’re breaking the industry standard when it comes to the term “hatchery quality”.
Oh and at some point in this episode Alex spills the beans giving you an exclusive first look at new breeds coming to Meyer Hatchery. But first, let’s start with an inside peek at our breeding program and what a Breed Flock Manager exactly does?
