Detailed Information: Cobb 500
The world’s most efficient broiler has the lowest feed conversion, best growth rate and an ability to thrive on low density, less costly nutrition. These attributes combine to give the Cobb500 the competitive advantage of the lowest cost per kilogram or pound of live-weight produced for the growing customer base worldwide.
The Cobb500 has:
Lowest cost of live weight produced
Superior performance on lower cost feed rations
Most feed efficient
Excellent growth rate
Best broiler uniformity for processing
Feed is now 60% of the total cost of producing a broiler. Feed costs are forecast to remain high for the next 1-2 years*. Efficient feed utilization is the most influential input in the management of live production cost.
Cobb selection of programs have emphasized efficiency and feed conversion as high priorities in the development of the Cobb500. Cobb achieves the lowest cost of producing a kilogram or pound of meat in markets around the world.
Efficient feed conversion and excellent growth rate assist in the customer's goal of achieving a target weight with the competitive advantage of lowest cost. Cobb combines both attributes in the world's most successful broiler, the Cobb500.
Lowest feed conversion together with the ability of the Cobb500 to thrive on lower density, less expensive feed, reduces the cost of producing chicken meat.
When lower density feed with reduced nutrient levels is fed to the Cobb500 it decreases feed ingredient costs without affecting performance.
Feed cost savings from a one million bird/week operation are over $2.8 million/year.
The Cobb500 Broiler has the best uniformity in the market. The higher uniformity gives the processor more birds within a target weight specified by the customer
The greater number of marketable broilers, the higher the sales revenue, optimizing customer revenue and profitability.
The Cobb500 is a competitive breeder, providing excellent egg and chick numbers to complement the superior performance of the world’s most efficient broiler.
