Cobb is recognised as the breed of choice with customers worldwide (i.e. leading producers such as Tyson Foods (US) and Rainbow Farms (SA)). This is because the Cobb breed provides the ideal bird for both whole and cut-up portions.
The COBB500 is the most sought-after broiler in the global market. The breed combines high chick numbers with the ability to achieve the lowest cost live weight production, outstanding uniformity and the highest breast meat yield at the processing plant.
