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. 

The Fostera PCV recognition program highlights 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," said Benjamin Church, senior marketing communications manager, for Pfizer Animal Health. "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.
