HUNTSVILLE, Ala. — Aviagen plans to begin construction on a brand-new, Texas-based hatchery in September 2021 because of strong demand for broiler breeding stock throughout North America and the globe.

According to Aviagen’s Vice President of Operations Jason Mack, Longview was chosen for its proximity to regional and international airports, and its biosecure location away from other bird populations.
