Nuscience feed technology enters Canadian market under Biotica brand

Nuscience, a member of the Royal Agrifirm Group, has announced the introduction of its elite level feed technology suite into the Canadian market, under the Biotica product brand via strategic marketing partnership with Canadian Bio-Systems Inc.

The launch of Biotica introduces Nuscience feed technology across Canadian poultry, swine and ruminant sectors, offering producers and industry fresh solutions to employ as part of strategies aligned with optimizing production and meeting new marketplace requirements and demands.

“The opportunity for livestock industries to benefit from new science-driven, feed ingredient-based solutions is rapidly advancing,” says Rob Patterson, CBS Inc. Technical Director. “Nuscience technology stands at the leading edge globally. We are pleased to partner with Nuscience to offer Biotica across Canada as part of our CBS Inc. Feed Science Platforms.”

Future is now

Biotica is a functional feed additive. It is available in tailored formulations for different types of poultry, as well as for swine and ruminants, with versatility to support a broad range of production systems and market opportunities. Biotica fits well with advanced strategies designed to support health, well-being and overall performance of animals, including those raised under strict judicious use principles regarding the use of antibiotics.

“In the global animal feed industry, the future is now,” says Rob Goedegebuure, Global Lead, Health4U Feed Additives, Nuscience. “The Canadian market is among those embracing change and innovation. We are pleased through our partnership with Canadian Bio-Systems Inc. to provide our most advanced feed technology to this increasingly progressive market.”

The Nuscience technology featured in Biotica has become a market leader globally with a proven decade-plus track record among feed formulations designed to optimize animal and production benefits without the inclusion of antibiotic growth promoters.

Production systems in Canada have become increasingly focused on judicious use principles and veterinary oversight. Canada has set December 2018 as the deadline for moving all use of antibiotics to prescription only.

Science advances with MCFA set to power swine production into the future

Latest opportunities will be highlighted at World Pork Expo, June 6-8 in Des Moines

ARDEN HILLS, MN & CALGARY, AB — As the pork industry across the U.S. and Canada prepares for a new landscape of dramatically evolved rules, expectations and demands impacting how pigs are raised, advances in the science behind a ground-breaking feed additive technology are generating fresh solutions to help producers and their industry transition to the future.

The feed additive option at the forefront of these advances is medium chain fatty acids (MCFA) technology – featured at the World Pork Expo, June 6-8 in Des Moines, Iowa. MCFA are molecules consisting of 6 to 12 carbon length chains that have shown functional activities beneficial to all phases of swine production and value chain movement.

Latest generation options

Two leading providers of MCFA technology options are U.S.-based PMI Nutritional Additives and Canada-based Canadian Bio-Systems Inc. (CBS Inc.) Both companies are strategic partners with Nuscience, a member of the Royal Agrifirm Group, to help bring the best MCFA products including the latest generation product brands, OutPace and Biotica, to their respective countries.

“The swine industry has entered an important time of evolution that demands new science-based solutions,” says Dr Peter Karnezos, Research Director of PMI Nutritional Additives. “MCFA technology represents a leading area of innovation that can play a central role in helping to meet today’s challenges, as pork production continues to shift toward a new toolbox for the 21st century. We look forward to sharing the latest information at the World Pork Expo.”

A rising focus for producers and industry is how to optimize intrinsic health and immunity, including via feed additives that can positively support gut wellness and morphology. Research is uncovering new opportunities for functional feed ingredients including their potential to help with strategies to address top challenges. These include supporting animals during common periods of stress such as diet change, movement or other wellness challenges.

Expanding the toolbox

Studies have confirmed that the foundation of the potential of MCFA as a uniquely potent, bio-based functional feed additive is rooted in its unique molecular composition. MCFA are “free” fatty acids that are unbranched with no double bonds or ring structures, making them highly maneuverable and active immediately. Studies have shown leading commercial blends of MCFA are beneficial when pigs are fed diets with or without antimicrobials. However, with the shift toward greater restrictions on antimicrobials use and stricter, judicious use principles, they have garnered increasing attention as a top option to help producers transition to these new realities.

“The latest formulations featuring MCFA technology are built for now and for the future – they fit the direction progressive companies and producers are adopting to stay ahead of the curve,” says Rob Patterson, Technical Director of CBS Inc. “They represent a ‘triple-win’ tool – benefitting the animals, producers, and the industry as a whole. As a non-pharmaceutical, bio-based feed additive, MCFA options also fit the type of production input that is increasingly preferred and well accepted by the marketplace.”

Fresh knowledge at World Pork Expo

New information on the latest knowledge, options and opportunities with MCFA technology, including details on OutPace from PMI Nutritional Additives and Biotica from CBS Inc. will be announced and showcased at the World Pork Expo in Des Moines, IA. Attendees can get information by visiting the PMI Nutritional Additives tent (#G523) and CBS Inc. tent (#G413). More information is also available by contacting either company directly.
