The award for the best Cobb700 breeder performance in the U.S. went to Peco Foods' Batesville complex in Arkansas.


The Peco facility achieved an average of 158.09 total eggs and 129.44 chicks per hen housed with the Cobb 700 from 25 weeks to 65 weeks of age. “From their first flock placed in August of 2008, they have provided excellent management to produce successful results on the Cobb700," said Chance Bryant, Cobb’s technical service manager.
