Cobb Germany has awarded Janra, a leading Polish broiler chick supplier, the new trophy for the best breeder flock in Poland.
Janra’s flock of 20,000 Cobb 500 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€ says Truscott.
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€
