U.S. Farmers and Ranchers Alliance has announced that Pfizer Animal Health has become the first animal health company member of USFRA’s Premier Partner Advisory Group.

“It is important that the agriculture industry joins together for the common goal of building public trust in the U.S. food system,” says Bob Stallman, president of the American Farm Bureau Federation and chairman of USFRA. “USFRA is proud to have partners like Pfizer Animal Health supporting our mission of enhancing consumer trust, and maintaining and enhancing the freedom of U.S. farmers and ranchers.”     

As a member of the Premier Partner Advisory Group, Pfizer has a seat on the USFRA board and an opportunity to participate in committees/task forces, annual meeting and educational activities.  In addition, the expertise of Pfizer Animal Health can be used to help guide official positions in important animal care and health practices topics.

“Healthy food begins with healthy animals,” says Clint Lewis, president of U.S. operations for Pfizer Animal Health. “Veterinarians who care for animals on America’s farms play a key role in this effort, and through our collaboration with USFRA, Pfizer aims to raise the visibility and the voice of the veterinarian in our nation’s conversations about food production.”

USFRA’s members represent nearly all aspects of U.S. agriculture uniting with one voice. For more information, see usfraonline.org.
