Daybreak Parent Operation Matters

QUALITY PARTNERSHIPS

Daybreak Farms is an integrated Poultry producer.  

Our key activities in our chain consist of the following:

  • Breeder Operations
  • Hatching Operations 

    Broiler Operations

    Animal Feed manufacturing 

    Two Abattoirs

    Daybreak Farms’ breeder arm of the business is situated in Bela-Bela in Limpopo and consists of the two main sectors: Breeder Farms and Hatchery. 

    Our Breeder farms operate on male and female parent stock chicks that are sourced from a grandparent operation and are then reared into laying to produce fertile hatching eggs. These eggs are then incubated at our Hatching facilities to produce day old broiler chicks that have maximum genetic growth potential, for use in the broiler operations.

    Daybreak Farms has approximately 540 000 breeder birds (creating a market share of 5%) on the ground at any one time. These breeder birds are housed in 90 custom-built breeder houses and produce 1.3 million hatching eggs per week. The additional hatching egg requirement that enables the production of 1.8 million hatching eggs per week, is sourced through contract farmers and independent breeder farms, thus enabling Daybreak Farms to create further opportunities for emerging farmer development.

    Daybreak Farms’ hatchery facilities are state of the art, designed within industry standards using world-renowned Petersime incubators allowing us to produce day old broiler chicks up to 1.5 million per week
