"The livestock business is a people business, and together with our customers, we help build stronger communities by supporting and honoring those who protect us," said Jared Shriver, senior vice president of U.S. Cattle and Pork at Zoetis. "Supporting Folds of Honor allows us to elevate our commitment to education by raising scholarship funds for the families of our nation’s heroes.”
