Cobb SA gains 'valued and prestigious partner' award - SOUTH AFRICA - The strong growth and excellent performance of Cobb South Africa has been rewarded by Cobb-Vantress Inc with the presentation of the Cobb Golden Comb Award.

The award, recognising Cobb South Africa (Cobb SA) as a 'valued and prestigious partner', was made by Jerry Moye, vice president - worldwide operations of Cobb-Vantress, to the company's senior executives Miles Dally and Charles Vauqulin.

This award also acknowledges the five-year fundamental and extensive co-operation between Cobb-Vantress Inc. and Rainbow Farms, which makes Cobb SA one of the largest distributors of Cobb breeding stock worldwide.

In making the presentation, Jerry Moye emphasised the importance of this partnership and its great value to both Rainbow Farms and Cobb SA customers. This affirms Cobb SA's position as a grandparent breeding operation rated among the best in the world.

"External sales in Cobb SA have increased by 53% in the last year," said Mr Vauqulin. "This is an impressive increase and we have to thank our customers and the committed Cobb SA team for this achievement. The planned order book for this year is encouraging.

"We have expansion plans to accommodate these increased orders. With the Cobb genetic improvement we are seeing some excellent egg numbers, chick numbers and broiler performance."

He said that Cobb SA appreciated the continuous support and partnership derived from Cobb-Vantress, through their invaluable technical service support, guidance and commitment.

Cobb broiler breeding stock was first placed with Rainbow Farms in South Africa in 1992. Following the formation of Cobb South Africa, a new grandparent breeding farm and hatchery complex was inaugurated at Carolina, Johannesburg, in 2000.
