January 27, 2016 – Progressive solutions for on-site testing of feed enzymes are emerging to put the power of quality assurance into the hands of livestock producers. 

The latest is a newly upgraded version of the popular FeedCheck Express test kit from Canadian Bio-Systems Inc. (CBS Inc.), now paired with an online instructional video quickly accessible via smartphone, tablet or computer. 

“Farming today is increasingly about quality assuance and rapid response capability at all levels — and the front line is right on the farm,” says Krisjan Jones, CBS Inc. operations director. “As enzymes and other feed supplements become increasingly widely adopted, and critical to efficiency and profitability, producers need this capability for on site testing to make sure they have the right levels of activity to produce the desired result. FeedCheck Express puts that power for quick, precise, convenient testing into farmers’ hands.” 

The new instructional video offers simple-to-understand, visually-aided guidance in a convenient, mobile-accessible format, says Rob Patterson, CBS Inc. technical director. “The package is designed so that anyone involved in the operation can easily and accurately apply the test at any point in the production cycle.” 

A new supply of the latest FeedCheck Express kits for 2016 is now available to producers in both the U.S. and Canada by contacting CBS Inc. Information is also available at the International Production and Processing Expo (IPPE), Jan. 26-27 in Atlanta. U.S. distributor for CBS Inc. is Wilbur-Ellis. 

The new kit comes with print instructions and is also paired with the new instructional video available at https://vimeo.com/151925281. FeedCheck Express confirms the presence and activity of enzymes in both complete feeds and pelleted feeds. Feed samples do not require grinding or other processing, and mash or pellets can be included in the reaction vials.
