Marty Clark, of Clark Hill Farm in Jackson County, has earned the award for the top fast feathering Cobb500 flock with 193.91 total eggs/hen housed. Clark’s farm is part of the Mar-Jac Poultry Complex.

Marty’s father, Willie, started raising broiler breeders in the early 1970s with Central Soya before switching to Mar-Jac Poultry.

Marty Clark took over the breeder houses in 2008 and has become one of Mar-Jac’s most consistent producers. He attributes this success to paying close attention to detail, keeping a consistent routine and a good preventative maintenance program.
