Memorable Manitobans: Cyril Leonard Anderson (1904-1977)

Businessman.

Born in Winnipeg, Anderson moved to Chicago and returned to Manitoba in 1927, where he joined Canada Packers’ Feed Division. He made many improvements in animal feed by introducing modern nutritional concepts, and in 1939 formed his own company, Feed-Rite Mills. Anderson pioneered in the use of canola and soybean meal, always advocating the economic value of proper feeding practices, particularly for hogs and poultry. He was honoured by the Canadian Feed Industry Association in 1977, and received the Buffalo Rooster award from the Manitoba Hatchery Association.

He is a member of the Manitoba Agricultural Hall of Fame.
