Strains are more like specific traits in a gene in a Specie of an Animal, it's what differentiates though very negligibly in a particular breed.eg Asians and Africans, all humans, different looks.
For the Broiler Industry, not all Broilers are the same eventhough they look alike, thats why the result for all broilers remains meat, but the reasons vary. if you are raising broiler for a Suya Man, he doesnt really like the ones with a lot of fat nor too big, infact he'd prefer a smaller one that has come of maturity,because regardless of the size of the Broiler people price them almost the same from him and also he is looking at roasting a chicken that wouldnt take him much time nor make him burn a lot of charcoal, so you need to know the kind of strain that would give him what he wants so you can retain him.
The Broiler Strains available in Nigeria are Arbor Acre, Ross 308, Cob 500/700, Marshall broilers, Hubbard and Anak. It is however most advisable to stick with the first 3.
Now that you understand this, you need to know whuch hatcheries that produce this strains.
I’d just name some
Zartech(NPG also does few)-Cobb 500/700, Agrited and Sayed-Ross 308, Abor Arce +- CHI, Fidan, NPG(also does cobb),Cascada, Vertex, Goldsmine amongst many others.
Which strain is better?
This boils down to you.
Yes You.
What works for you may not work for someone else. Don’t follow the band wagon, carry out trials and investigations to know which would suit you best.
A brief guideline all the same(these are my opinions and not in anyway a principle nor an established fact)
Cobb- Good breastmeat, Lean Meat,good Height, good FCR
Abor Acre-Good weight and carcass, heavy feeder, good FCR
Ross 308- Good breastmeat, Lean Meat, good Height, good FCR.
So if you are looking at selling your Birds live, you should give more consideration to Cobb and Agrited Ross.
If you are selling frozen Abor Acre and Ross 308 should give you a better result.
For emphasis stake, there is no such written laws for these broilers, they are just my opinions.
People have raised Cobbs that gave better Live weight than Abor Acre over a given period.
For others,their Abor Acre have dusted Ross 308 hands down in the live market.
The principle remains, raise the birds you are most comfortable with and not what every body else is raising.
