Our Story


Friesen Livestock Nutrition is all about family, it’s in our name. Coming from a rich background and tradition of excellence in the livestock feed industry, Dick Friesen and two of his son’s, Edward and Dennis, decided to keep it in the family. They launched Friesen Livestock in 2002 with a dream of building their own family based business. With hard work, dedication and a focus on family values, their business quickly grew. Today, Friesen operates throughout Western Canada and the North Western United States, with an eye on the world.

We continue to honor the family traditions that have carried us this far; hard work, dedication and trust. These principles are evident throughout our company. Our dedicated staff are all part of the Friesen Family and strive to earn our customers business every day.

GMP (Good Manufacturing Practice)

A GMP is a system for ensuring that products are consistently produced and controlled according to quality standards. It is designed to minimize the risks involved in any pharmaceutical production that cannot be eliminated through testing the final product.
GMP covers all aspects of production from the starting materials, premises and equipment to the training and personal hygiene of staff. Detailed, written procedures are essential for each process that could affect the quality of the finished product. There must be systems to provide documented proof that correct procedures are consistently followed at each step in the manufacturing process – every time a product is made.

HACCP (Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points )

HACCP is a management system in which food safety is addressed through the analysis and control of biological, chemical, and physical hazards from raw material production, procurement and handling, to manufacturing, distribution and consumption of the finished product.
