Elite Innovation

The world of livestock production is evolving. is fortunate to work with leading innovators who are shaping the future. They all have great stories to tell and we are pleased to be part of the team helping do that.

At top example is Canadian Bio-Systems, which recently launched new Feed Science Platforms offering dynamic solutions to meet the demands of farmers, industry, food providers and consumers.

The Feed Science Platforms include five areas of feed technology innovation – functional fatty acids, Multi-Carbohydrase technology, grain management technology, phytogenics & probiotics and enhanced yeast technology. The platforms are backed by technical support to help livestock operations determine “What’s your FSP fingerprint?” to identify the best customized package for each operation.

Optimizing livestock production

“The focus of CBS Inc. Feed Science Platforms is to lock in the best results for every farm,” says Mark Peters, CBS Inc. Sales and Marketing Director. “Today more than ever, science is the difference maker. The FSP fingerprint approach is a research-based, technically sound, simple-to-follow process that each customer can apply to make sure they are utilizing the absolute best package to maximize their opportunity for success. It’s a one-stop solution that fits today’s needs and is tailored to the unique requirements of every operation.”

The Feed Science Platforms leverage over 30 years of CBS Inc. research and development in partnership with leading research programs, including new advances based on the latest knowledge and technology from the CBS Inc. pipeline. The FSP technology represents the most advanced platform collection of CBS Inc. feed technology ever, taking the vision for the future of bio-based, sustainable, science-powered feed enhancing technology to a new level.

Synergy drives success

“The future of feed enhancement has broadened from a focus on products to a broader, more dynamic and synergistic emphasis on platforms – each representing areas of science that are continuously evolving and improving,” says Rob Patterson, CBS Inc. Technical Director.

“As an integrated, innovation-focused company that researches, develops and manufactures feed technology across each of the FSP areas, and has built an R&D base advancing this vision for more than three decades, we are well positioned to deliver this approach.”

The key to success for the FSP approach is having an underlying ecosystem of advanced science that powers the multi-platforms and related products, continually identifying and refining new opportunities for synergy and innovation, says Krisjan Jones, CBS Inc. Operations Director. “Today we have achieved a very high functioning FSP ecosystem that is driving continual improvement, constantly progressing based on new research knowledge and the support and feedback of our partners and customers around the world.”

More information on FSP is featured in a new website at and the main CBS Inc. website at Discussion of the FSP concept, in the context of ‘disruptive technologies’ in the evolving feed industry, is featured is a new FeedScape series podcast available here. Watch for more information on FSP components and advantages, including opportunities to help producers align with new antimicrobial use rules and other production changes, in the weeks ahead as the countdown advances toward new feed regulations Dec. 1, 2018.
