About Us

Our History

Fermentrics™ is the result of decades of research and field testing by Fermentrics Technologies Inc. to provide a diagnostic approach to providing qualitative and quantitative data on the rate and extent of carbohydrate digestion. The desire to make this cutting-edge analysis more accessible led to an August, 2010 agreement between RFS Technologies and Dairyland Laboratories, Inc., making Fermentrics available to all North American livestock producers and their nutritionists.

Fermentrics™ is a full service agricultural testing and research laboratory located Arnprior, Canada. Situated in the heart of the Ottawa Valley, we specialize in the gas fermentation analysis of feeds and forages.

Our Advisory Board
