New progress and ground-breaking technologies are leading the charge for CBS Bio Platforms as the expanding bio-based feed technology innovator powers ahead with a ramped-up, science-focused agenda for 2022.
Showcasing latest in feed tech
CBS showcases a range of innovations for swine, poultry and more at the Banff Pork Seminar Jan. 11-13, the International Production & Processing Expo (IPPE), Jan. 24-26 in Atlanta and the Iowa Pork Congress Jan 26-27 in Des Moines.
The company, headquartered in Calgary, Alberta, and serving an expanding customer base internationally, is also rolling out broadened availability of its flagship Feed Science Platforms in the U.S. and Canada, highlighted by novel Bio-Catalyst technology and other key advances.
“The year ahead represents an important time of evolution and advancement for livestock farmers and their industries, with many emerging opportunities to take advantage of the latest science to get more out of production,” says Mark Peters, Director of Sales and Marketing for CBS.
Delivering innovative solutions
“Innovative feed technologies, particularly new bio-based options that fit today’s rising consumer expectations and industry needs, have a more critical role to play than ever in supporting highly profitable and successful operations. Our focus is delivering practical solutions that make a real difference at the farm level.”
Innovation in feed technology is a major pathway to progress, agrees CBS Technical Director Rob Patterson. CBS is a leader in driving that innovation with the ongoing evolution of the Feed Science Platforms.
“As a science-driven company committed to innovation, we see a lot of new potential in 2022 to advance livestock industries with robust science and new solutions that make a difference at the farm level.”
A standout example rapidly gaining steam in the marketplace is new “Bio-Catalyst technology” introduced by CBS last year and now more broadly available for swine, poultry, aquaculture and ruminant applications. This brand new category of feed technology is based on decades of advanced novel feed technology science from the company’s network of research partner institutions led by the University of Manitoba.
“We’re very excited about the promise of this technology, which is delivering a steadily growing body of excellent results as the adoption continues to rise among farmers across the U.S. and Canada,” says Patterson. “It represents the future of feed enzymes – providing a comprehensive platform for maximizing the capability of feed enzymes to unlock value and unique advantages from a full range of production systems.”
Tackling top challenges
This includes capability for addressing top challenges such as keeping feed costs low, utilizing alternative and ‘opportunity’ ingredients, he says, along with protecting health, reducing environmental impact, minimizing antibiotic use and dramatically enhancing overall efficiency and profitability.
The full portfolio of CBS Feed Science Platforms includes technologies across five major areas. Along with Bio- Catalyst technology, this includes enhanced yeast technology, grain management technology, functional fatty acids, and phytogenetics and probiotics. The FSPs are backed by a process to determine “What’s your FSP fingerprint” – a new approach to advanced precision livestock feeding that helps individual operations identify how they can best integrate and capture synergies among the different types of feed technology.
