Cobb trophy rewards Polish success
Cobb Germany has awarded Janra, a leading Polish
broiler chick supplier, the new trophy for the best breeder flock in
Janra's flock of 20,000 Cobb
parent stock reached almost 140 chicks/hen housed to 60 weeks.
â€œWith our sales in Poland increasing this year by over 50%, we are
delighted to honour the company, which is achieving excellent parent stock
results,â€ says James Truscott, director of Cobb Germany.
â€œKeeping up with genetics by visiting the birds and ensuring all details
are considered is the key to the good results from this well respected customer
which supplies national and international markets with day-old broiler chicks,â€
Aldona van Krevel, who is responsible for sales in Poland, attributes the
growing success of Cobb in the country to good breeder results and to the way
customers are now managing and feeding the broilers in the right way to minimise
production costs and achieve exceptional results. The demand for Cobb broilers
is resulting in more breeders being placed.
Breeders are reared on spin feeders in a whole house with no pen divisions,
creating a high uniformity.
â€œAttention to detail in the rearing house is paramount to provide a solid
base for the challenges of production,â€ says Truscott. â€œIn the production
period all the work is carried out on a fixed time schedule â€” it all runs like
clockwork. Every detail is taken care of, the birds are watched closely
and the person responsible reacts to what the birds require.â€
