Agriculture industry veteran comes on board as new international sales representative

Xavier Temple joins the CBS team, with a special focus on the fast-rising South American livestock sectors, bringing extensive experience and networks built over the course of 27 years working with industry and the farm gate.

“It’s really remarkable how far agriculture has come since I started in this industry. It has been a fun journey with many great people along the way,” says Temple. “But what’s truly exciting is the opportunity before us today. I couldn’t be more pleased to join a team at CBS Inc. that is helping producers and industry get to the next level with science-based innovation."

Broad portfolio

His career has included a particularly strong focus on the swine business, including many years involved with genetics and related performance-oriented innovations. The Chilean born long-time Manitoban immigrated to Canada as a teenager and in addition to private business ventures has enjoyed a long career in a variety of roles serving producers and industry.

He is multi-lingual with broad experience and understanding of the unique evolving requirements of production in South America, Central America and Mexico, among other world regions. While his primary focus will be South America, along with Central America and Mexico, a portion of Temple’s portfolio will also crossover to assisting the CBS Inc. team in Canada, the U.S. and additional international markets.

Advancing technologies

Among key technologies, Temple will be involved with multi-carbohydrase enzyme products, nucleotides, unique yeast-derived options and more.

“Feed technology is a rising area of advancement for the future and CBS is a pioneer and leader. I look forward to working across the board with the CBS team, its network, affiliates and customers in this new position.”
