Cobb welcomes 50 participants at World Technical School in US




Fifty participants from 26 countries took part in the 2016 World Technical School organised by Cobb-Vantress, Inc. at Siloam Springs, Arkansas, US, which included hands-on workshops on farms, hatcheries, and in the laboratory. 


"This year's Cobb School was a tremendous success," said Dr Steve Bolden, director of the Cobb World Technical Support Team.  "Industry specialists from all over the world spent two weeks sharing best practices with one-another, while touring poultry facilities, attending classes together and sharing meals.

"The school remains the best training tool I've ever witnessed in our industry, and our distributors and customers very much look forward to their chance to attend. The relationships made with others across the world can be extremely valuable and last for a lifetime," Dr. Bolden said.


The two-week programme included visits to a broiler farm, a parent stock farm and processing plant, and a laboratory practical at the University of Arkansas.  The classroom sessions featured presentations by members of the World Technical Support Team covering all aspects of poultry meat production. 


Expanding the syllabus, there was also an afternoon of leadership training at the renowned Soderquist Center for Leadership and Ethics at John Brown University in Siloam Springs and an international 'cook off' won by the Asia-Pacific team with their mix of regional cuisine.
