Beatrice sells industrial park land for turkey hatchery

BEATRICE, Neb. – The city of Beatrice has sold three industrial park parcels to a Canadian company that plans to hatch turkeys there.

Beatrice radio station KWBE reports that city officials approved the $60,000 sale Monday night.

Hybrid Turkeys, of Kitchener, Ontario, announced in June that it hopes to have its $6 million turkey hatchery up and running by July 2017. Hybrid Turkeys is part of Hendrix Genetics, a Netherlands-based company.

Officials say that once the eggs are hatched, the young turkeys are vaccinated and shipped to growing operations around the United States within 24 hours.
