GERMANY - Fourteen nationalities in Cobb Germany celebrated Christmas.

The third Cobb Germany 'Weihnachtsfest' team meeting took place over two days, coinciding with the Wimex/Cobb Germany Christmas party.

Thirty-five delegates from 14 nationalities took part, covering all of the 21 countries in Cobb Germany's sales area.

The first day was devoted on hatchery management with Steve Tweed, the widely acclaimed hatchery specialist within the Cobb World Technical Support Team, stressing the importance of hatchery ventilation.

Pelayo Casanovas, technical director from Cobb Europe, and Patrick van Trijp, technical manager, gave a product up-date with the benefits of the Cobb 500 clearly be confirmed.

"The excellent customer results in central and eastern Europe with both parent stock and broilers, and at processing plants, are ensuring that the demand for Cobb is quite outstanding," says James Truscott, director of Cobb Germany.

"The experiences of our team members working closely with customers confirms that chicken meat can be produced at a lower cost with Cobb. We are also seeing breeder performance as a decision-maker in choosing the breed."

The focus of the second day was on veterinary issues and real-life situations which can help customers achieve a more biosecure environment. The speakers were the well respected Cobb Germany veterinarian consultants, Dr Klaus Müller-Molenar and Dr Matthias Todte.

Wout van Wolfswinkel, Cobb Germany's account manager from Cobb Europe, told the team how the Cobb breed was expanding sales worldwide.

"We know from the comments how much these get-togethers are appreciated by everyone involved in our market area," added Mr Truscott. "The interaction is excellent and a wide range of technical issues covered so our team is well prepared to help customers."
