In presenting the award, Antony Taylor, regional account manager for Cobb Europe, said it was an excellent achievement for the Buddens to have the best flock in 2008 out of almost 30 million Cobb parent stock throughout the region. The flock provides hatching eggs for P.D. Hook.


The winning flock was the third that the Buddens have managed since they bought the Northcombe Farm unit.
