Organisation

To bring you the best of the rabbit's genetics, HYCOLE has established over the years an organisation dedicated to the breeding of meat rabbits.

Genetic selection

The 7000 females with high genetic value and health status are spread over 2 farms:

  • Ribecourt la Tour (France) : 4000 selected reproducers spread out over 5 genetic lines: 3 male lines and 2 female lines
  • Kerekegyhaza (Hungary) : 3000 reproducers from female D line in selection and muliplication in our subsidiary HYCOLE KFT

The 2 stations are connected together by artificial insemination and a joint genetic evaluation to ensure an homogeneous genetic progress.

The stage of multiplication dedicated to the production of the parental female is made from 8000 GP.D females divided into farms under contract with HYCOLE. These farms are all located within a range of 150 km around the breeding station of Ribecourt la Tour to ensure by our technicians a strict health and technical follow-up as well as a rigorous sorting of marketed breeders.
