History

Our company was formed in the late 2000’s, when we opened as the sole distributor in Canada for Brinsea incubation products. The business grew quickly, and we were proud to have offered high quality incubation equipment to Canadians. Unfortunately, our investment in marketing and promoting the brand in Canada grew too quickly and other larger companies soon took over the market at uncompetitive price structures. We ceased to carry and service Brinsea products in 2018.

Now, we are pleased to return to business, this time with a very different focus. Our founder, Clayton Botkin, has decided to take his extensive experience in working with the agriculture industry and provide consulting services. Our clients range from governments at varying levels, to industry associations. Clayton has a number of formal academic credentials in One Health, Risk Management, Applied Biology, and Incident Command Systems, as well as a Professional Agrologist with the BC Institute of Agrologists. He also brings 13 years of unique government experience ranging from youth development and industry specialist to program development and management. In addition, through decades of volunteer experience, he has developed strong leadership and communication skills and a background in governance. In 2021, Clayton become one of Canada’s few licensed poultry judges by the American Poultry Association. He has also led a number of projects through his volunteer commitments, one of the largest being the 2023 Waterfowl Conservation Workshop, in Seattle, Washington. Clayton is the current president of the International Wild Waterfowl Association, and a board member of the Canadian Ornamental Pheasant & Game Bird Association, World Pheasant Association, Delta Farmland and Wildlife Trust, and the BC Waterfowl Society. He is also the president of the Fraser Valley Poultry Fanciers Association.

Our Work

We are pleased to work with a number of clients. Our clients range from small non-profit organizations to government agencies. We are pleased to provide project development and management services, and professional services when our clients have needs that align with our expertise. The recent changes to British Columbia’s Professional Governance Act have changed the landscape for professionals in the Province, requiring specific declarations and skillsets to offer services in our field. We are here to help clients navigate their needs and support the advancement of the agriculture industry and how it plans, adapts and responds to emergency management. We are also pleased to support small flock clients in building and delivering extension programs and learning opportunities to improve the viability and support long term growth in the sector.

For specific examples of our work, please reach out to us and we will be happy to discuss our experience and how we can help you to meet your needs.
