Pfizer Animal Health now accepting nominations to honor the higher standards of pork caregivers

MADISON, N.J. (Sept. 15, 2011) - Pfizer Animal Health is accepting nominations for a program recognizing people working in pork operations who consistently reach for higher standards and put in extra effort to make positive contributions to on-farm processes and practices. 

Pfizer Animal Health's commitment to best practices and continuous quality improvement has guided the development of the new Fostera™ PCV vaccine, the only single-dose vaccine that helps prevent PCV2 viremia. Pfizer Animal Health is just as committed to honoring pork caregivers. This program recognizes people who work behind the scenes - those in the barn, service managers, production managers or anyone else who ensures every little thing is done right - to raise healthy, productive pigs.

"Through the Fostera PCV recognition of excellence program, we want to celebrate those individuals who go above and beyond to exemplify higher standards," says Benjamin Church, senior marketing communications manager, Pfizer Animal Health. "Just as Fostera PCV can help drive herd health to a high level, the individuals we are seeking for this program are demonstrating high standards of pork production." 

Winners will be selected by an independent panel and each will receive $1,000 cash, plus an all-expenses-paid trip for two to the Pfizer Animal Health headquarters and New York City on April 18-21, 2012.

Nominations can be submitted at and must be received by Nov. 30, 2011. Producers, veterinarians and others working in the pork industry are encouraged to nominate qualified individuals for these awards. Purchasing product is not required to make a nomination or win.

Pfizer Animal Health, a business of Pfizer Inc., is a world leader in discovering and developing innovative animal vaccines and prescription medicines, investing an estimated $300 million annually in animal health product research and development.
