Broiler flock award presented by Cobb
Cobb Germany has awarded the first trophy to the Dekert
and Taszarek family for the best broiler flock in
Iliana Dekert and Anna Taszarek beat the breed target, as well as benefited
from a lower cost diet with their flock of 124,000 Cobb 500 broilers on the farm
at Gospodarstwo Rolne.
The birds reached an average 2.668 kg at 41 days of age, with a livability
of 97.6% and feed conversion of 1.74. To help combat high feed prices 20% whole
wheat was fed to the broilers, lowering production cost and ensuring health.
Cobb Germany director James Truscott worked alongside the broiler farmers
inside the chicken house, and also exchanged data by e-mail to ensure the birds
were managed in the correct way. "Outstanding results have been achieved by fine
tuning the feed, ventilation, lighting programs, temperature and general
management procedures," he said.
