Cobb is pleased to announce nine grant recipients in funding for the 2023 Cobb Research Initiative (CRI).

“We are excited to announce our first grant recipients for this new initiative and the partnerships that come from the developments of these projects,” said Dr. William Herring, Vice President of Research and Development, for Cobb. “Each proposal was carefully reviewed and we believe that the chosen recipients will help propel us forward not just in genetic progress, but in numerous areas including new innovative technologies and advanced research. We must find ways to control and prevent diseases, improve animal health and welfare outcomes, reduce production costs and enhance product quality while advancing sustainability needs. We thank all those that submitted their ideas and look forward to our rolling submission process moving forward.”

The CRI program was developed to help propel poultry genetics further by creating opportunities that bring together diverse scientific research disciplines to create advancements in global protein production. Innovations like artificial intelligence, data system collection and management, robotics, automation and application of biotechnology are all areas of focus in this initiative.

“Cobb, as a leading genetics company, is at the forefront of what we believe is the convergence of science, technology and animal health,” said Joyce J. Lee, President for Cobb. “This funding not only shows Cobb’s commitment to genetic progress, but our understanding that the demand for quality protein around the world will continue to increase with the global population. We will use innovative research, new technologies and data analysis to help further our genetic progress and answer key issues facing the global poultry industry.”
