With the majority share of total cost of production coming from feed, the Cobb500 allows for diet flexibility by lowering cost while still achieving an excellent growth rate. Providing the Cobb500 with optimum environmental conditions by following our best practice recommendation for management is key to unlocking its true cost-saving potential. Lower feed cost alongside an optimum environment for the birds will achieve more saleable yield, thereby lowering the overall cost of production.
Through the use of the latest real time FCR technology, the Cobb500 has been selected to achieve an optimum FCR, which will continue to improve year after year. Not only will this allow you to reduce your cost of production right now, but also on a continual basis.
