A Welcome From Our Sponsor
On behalf of nearly 4,600 Purina® dealers and Land O'Lakes Cooperatives across the United States, I would like to welcome you to the 2012 National Angus Conference & Tour.
Purina, along with our strong corporate partner, Pfizer Animal Health, are pleased to be the major sponsors for this conference. We appreciate the great working relationship that Land O'Lakes Purina Feed continues to have with the American Angus Association and your excellent staff. We believe that the American Angus Association is a leader in developing programs and support mechanisms to help improve the competitive advantage of its breeders.
It's great to be coming back to my home state of Kansas for this year's conference and tour. As usual, the staff has put together a top-notch program that will allow you a great return on your time investment.
These are exciting times in the cattle business. To ensure a prosperous future for our cattle farms and ranches, research in more efficient and effective ways to provide optimal cattle nutrition has never been more important. With unsurpassed research and technical support, Purina leads the industry in providing America's cattlemen with innovative products and programs to help you make more efficient use of your resources of land, labor, capital and management.
This is accomplished through Purina's exclusive Intake Modifying Technology® found in our Accuration® feeds and our new Wind and Rain® STORM™ cattle minerals redesigned for more consistent intake and greater weather resistance. We are confident that selecting these programs, along with sound advice from your Land O'Lakes Purina Feed representative, can help you achieve the performance and financial goals for your operation.
Purina is happy to share our sponsorship for this progressive event with one of our key corporate partners, Pfizer Animal Health, makers of such great products as Aureomycin®, Aureo S 700®, Bovatec® and Deccox®. As part of a sound nutritional program from Purina, these products help you to protect your investment. If you have questions about Purina cattle feed products or want to find the location of your nearest dealer, you can call 1-800-227-8941 or visit our website at www.cattlenutrition.com. Again, welcome, and have a great conference and tour.
