Feed the focus at Cobb conference in Greece
Over 200 poultry farmers and technical advisers
representing over 70% of the Greek and Cypriot broiler industries attended a
conference on breeder management at Ioannina in northern
The event was organised by Kego SA with support from Cobb Europe and Cobb
Germany. Rodolfos Gogorosis, MD of Kego, highlighted the need, with
current rising commodity prices, to control feed inputs and their cost while
maximising egg and meat production. â€œThis is something of course that the
Cobb 500 excels at,â€ he commented.
James Truscott, director of Cobb Germany: â€œThe Greek chicken meat industry
discussed how to further improve its performance with the Cobb 500, which is
gaining market share not only in Greece but in our other market areas too.
Cobb's new male is showing its benefits not just as a breeder, but also on
broiler farms and in processing plants.â€
The speakers also covered a range of topics including breed selection and
management in a fast changing environment for the Cobb 500 male and female, and
European experiences generally on Salmonella control in broiler breeders.
