Sollio Agriculture, headquartered in Montreal, QB, was recognized for 55 years of membership in Cooperative Research Farms (CRF) during the CRF Board of Directors October 2021 meeting.

“For the past55 years, Sollio Agriculture has not only been an active participant and member of CRF they have also been an outstanding research partner, with research farms under Sollio Agriculture’s ownership and management used by CRF for broiler, layer and sow research," says David Ott, CRF general manager.

“Sollio Agriculture’s livestock, poultry and equine nutritionist and research leaders have collaborated on CRF’s multiple innovations; as well as also served in key leadership roles throughout the history of the CRF organization."

“Innovations have always been a cornerstone of Sollio Agriculture’s development," says David Arseneau, general manager, Livestock Production for Sollio Agriculture.

"This innovation is rooted in our close relationship with the farmers that we serve, because their needs are the first step in our innovation process.

"Being able to leverage the shared know-how and collaborative research from our CRF partnership is key to develop innovative concepts and products that address the challenges our members and customers face every day," says Arseneau.

"We also see a great value in sharing our research with our CRF partners, who in turn take it further and accelerate the innovation process. There’s no doubt that Canadian farming families have benefited from these 55 years of collaborative research that brought them multiple solutions to better their performances and increase their prosperity."
