  • Bábolna TETRA out of Hungary.
  • City of Bábolna founded in 1268
  • General breeding company for horses established by the state for military purposes in 1789
  • Imported the Shagya breed early on and became famous for its further development of this breed in Bábolna, Hungary
    The Breeding company, still state owned at this time, expanded into poultry breeding in 1967
  • The poultry breeding division was set up by Dr. Róber Burgert -NOTE: in Hungary they switch places for first and last names.
  • Tetra Broiler was terminated during the JV with Arbor Acres in the 90’s, and they acquired the HARCO from Arbor Acres.
    Tetra White program did not develop after the 80’s due to their focus on Europe which became almost fully brown.
  • In 2004 Mr. George Buza and Mr. Zoltan Budai together with one other silent partner bought the company from the state with the vision to re-establish Bábolna TETRA worldwide.
    The Tetra White program was also immediately re-instated as a priority in the breeding program.
  • Location of Bábolna is half-way between Vienna, Austria and the Hungarian capital, Budapest.
  • At the commercial headquarters the horse breeding operation still exists.
  • Technical headquarters of Uraiújfalu is closer located to the pedigree and GPS farms.
  • One of the primary pedigree farms.
  • The newly built PS hatchery after the purchase in 2004. Petersime machines, single-stage.
    9 setters, 6 hatchers, each hatcher capacity of 38,400 eggs, can make 100.000 females per hatch. When full have 2 hatches per week (mon & thu) has a capacity of about 10 mln female chicks per year.
  • Some basics in breeding, very comparable to other breeding companies.
  • Independent electronic and computerized registration.
  • Some general points of attention in the breeding program for females
  • For males
  • Specific characteristics for egg quality
  • General parameters of selection
  • General accepted genetic improvement based on inheritability.
  • Home Field, traditionally strong Tetra markets in Europe and Northern Africa.
  • Countries with TETRA GPS, PS or commercials. (GPS IN GREEN).
  • Establishment of Tetra Americana in 2008
  • Our press release in early 2009.
  • Tetra Brown GPS and PS.
  • Early maturing, comparable to Bovans and Hyline in this case.
  • High number Egss / HH.
  • Very comparable feed efficiency to Hy Line brown.
    Don’t look at absolute number, based on European feed diets which are generally lower on energy, meaning higher feed intake.
  • The latest completed test from 2008-2009.
    First few slides on rearing, then production data.
  • In this test shows large day-old chicks compared to others.
  • Not a big eater, need to keep a close eye on body weight when rearing in order to move into production properly!
  • Some slides on cumulative data during production up to 38 weeks of age.
    Good egg numbers, together with HyLine the highest in the Browns (the other 2 are Amber type birds).
  • Together with HyLine good on production.
  • Again, shows to be a small eater, in the summer time with high temperatures need to keep a close eye on that!
  • Some of the latest raw data that has come in on production up to 66 weeks of age (48 weeks producing).
    At 66 weeks production is very comparable to HyLine (80,4%), Hisex (83,4%) and ISA (81,9%).
    Persistency (>90%) is not so good here, 23 weeks, compared to HyLine 27 weeks, Hisex 32 weeks and ISA 31 weeks.
  • Our latest results of our internal test at Auburn University comparing TETRA Brown to HyLine Brown and Bovans Brown.
    Comparable production, HyLine shows good livability with Bovans and Tetra one each up to 36 weeks (out of about 200 birds each group).
  • Here the egg weight shows to be a little lower than a Bovans or Hyline. On similar diets the Tetra shows smaller egg size.
    This can be helpful from here on in the average egg size not getting too big, perhaps giving more L eggs on balance.
  • Going in to 40 weeks an on, there is a clear difference in feed consumption on the Tetra compared to a Bovans and HyLine.
    Tetra is known for its good feed efficiency!
