Fresh solutions designed to fit with the paradigm shift toward reduced antimicrobial use
As a new world of livestock production rapdily takes shape, next-generation technologies such as medium chain fatty acids are rapidly rising in popularity among farming operations.
Front and centre is Nuscience elite level feed technology, available in Canada under the Biotica product brand via strategic marketing partnership with Canadian Bio-Systems Inc. (CBS Inc.).
The rising adoption comes as Nuscience, a member of the Royal Agrifirm Group, charges forwad with expanded support for Biotica, providing the feed industry including poultry, swine and ruminant sectors with fresh solutions designed to fit with the paradigm shift toward reduced antimicrobial use.
New vanguard of performance
“We are continuing to see strong uptake of Biotica by progressive companies and producers adjusting to the new standards on judicious use of antibiotics and also to align production strategies with a range of both current and emerging market opportunities,” says Rob Patterson, Technical Director with CBS Inc.
Biotica is a functional feed additive that fits well with advanced strategies designed to support health, well-being and overall performance of animals. The Nuscience technology featured in Biotica has become a market leader globally with a proven decade-plus track record of use with production systems designed to optimize animal and production benefits without the inclusion of antibiotic growth promoters.
Canada has shifted all use of antibiotics to prescription only. Major producer and commodity associations have implemented various stages of programs aligned with this shift, often addressing antimicrobial stewardship along with broader sustainability initiatives encompassing additional aspects of production such as housing, biosecurity, environment, welfare, quality and food safety.
Healthy animals, healthy production
Recent Nuscience delegations have toured key production regions in Canada and participated in numerous meetings and industry events along with CBS Inc. team partners. Nuscience approaches the animal feed industry with two focused business units, Nutrition4U and Health4U. Nutrition4U by Nuscience is a range of young animal nutrition concepts, customized premixes and performing concentrates. Health4U by Nuscience, which includes the technology featured in Biotica, offers innovative additives and functional feed ingredients.
