SILOAM SPRINGS, Ark. – Kathmandu might not seem like a growth market for poultry, but Cobb Vantress said the company is seeing some results despite challenging conditions.

To support its progress in the city, Cobb Vantress Nepal hosted a one-day seminar where the Cobb World Technical Support Team gave presentations on ventilation, male and female management and hatchery, biosecurity and disease control management.

“Although there are few houses with modern environmental controls in Nepal, many of the older style open-sided houses can still be managed to get good performance and benefit from the Cobb genetic potential,” said Mohammad Ismail, sales director for Cobb Asia-Pacific. “We are a global company that supports our customers and their markets, and we’re really pleased to see that our customers are confident and happy with our product. Some participants traveled more than six hours to attend this seminar. It was valuable for us to meet with many of our long-time friends and learn more about their business needs, challenges and success stories.

“Even though Nepal is a small market, Cobb has a substantial market share and we look forward to continued growth,” Ismail added.

Cobb-Vantress, Inc. is a poultry research and development company specializing in the production improvement and sale of broiler breeding stock.  The company is leading breeding stock supplier with distribution in more than 120 countries.
