The feed technology company has announced the addition of poultry specialist Will Varner.
He brings extensive knowledge and experience to the role, and holds a degree in poultry science from North Carolina State University, said the firm.
Varner has served farmers for more than a decade in a variety of increasingly senior positions related to sustainability, nutrition and feed technology, noted CBS.
His experience also includes spearheading research projects related to various facets of poultry production, including technical processes related to feed analysis and feed milling. “Strong science is the foundation of sound strategies and decision-making,” said Varner.
While his role in Eastern Poultry Sales will be primarily centered on poultry, it will also crossover to support the broader CBS team across all livestock categories. His work will include helping the team to service conventional production as well as dramatically rising demand for bio-based feed additives that support antibiotic-free production programs, said the company.
CBS Bio Platforms is headquartered in Calgary, Alberta. In recent years the company has dramatically increased its US focus, including with the establishment of a new distribution and manufacturing facility in Volga, North Dakota and the emergence of CBS Bio Platforms USA.
The company founded by Owen Jones 38 years ago began with a focus on helping farmers enhance their feeding programs with more natural ingredients, primarily via enzyme technology. It has since broadened its offering of solutions while expanding to serve markets in over 20 countries.
