An eternally young classic celebrates its birthday! 25 years of Delta ® are a reason to celebrate. Bred and produced from the beginning to the present day to meet your highest demands - often imitated, but still the barely attainable benchmark. How can this work over such a long period? The secret of our success lies in the fact that we have never stopped improving the best. Our breeders observe the market in order to sense or create trends with innovations, at a time when they are still far away in the future. Standing still means taking a step backwards, and in the last 6 years alone, over 40% of the Delta ® range has been renewed or improved. So that we can look forward to celebrating our 50th anniversary as market leader, we will continue to put all our energy into the core values of Delta ® . Quality and reliability are our top priority which means that only the best genetics can be included in our Delta ® family. Without promising too much - but looking into the future of Delta ® breeding which leads us into anticipation and will also be another milestone for you, heralding a new era. Your high demands from Delta ® genetics are our challenge, which we will gladly continue to meet.
