Pfizer Animal Health Announces First Winner Of HD 50K And GeneMax™ Sweepstakes

Producers Can Earn A Chance To Improve The Genetics Of Their Herds

MADISON, N.J. — Jan. 7, 2013 — Heath Zuellner is the first grand-prize winner of the HD 50K and GeneMax™ Sweepstakes from Pfizer Animal Health. He is a recent graduate from the Nebraska College of Technical Agriculture in Curtis, Neb., and the new owner of Zuellner Farms in Campbell, Neb. As part of this sweepstakes, Zuellner is one of five producers who will receive $1,000 to use toward either the purchase of an animal with genomic-enhanced expected progeny differences (GE-EPDs) powered by HD 50K or testing their own herds with GeneMax.

Zuellner says winning this sweepstakes grand prize offers him a great opportunity to try HD 50K.

“I’m excited to see what kind of results we’ll have with the first purchase of an HD 50K-tested bull on my operation,” Zuellner says. “I think having genetic tools such as this will have big influence on my future bull purchasing decisions and which heifers to keep and sell.”

This sweepstakes offers winners, such as Zuellner, a chance to advance herd genetics.

“We’re pleased to be able to provide Heath this opportunity to help invest in the future of his herd,” says Michael Amos, associate director, marketing, Pfizer Animal Health. “Ensuring his foundation animals are genetically superior provides a great chance to start his herd off on the right track.”

Four more winners will be announced monthly during the sweepstakes, which ends March 31, 2013. Black Angus animals with GE-EPDs powered by HD 50K are eligible for purchase with this grand prize. Or, if producers choose to apply the grand prize toward GeneMax testing, those tests can be used on any high-percentage Black Angus animal.
