It is with great excitement we announce that NALF and Pfizer Animal Health have formed a partnership for an incentive program that began April 1 and will run through December 2014. This program has the potential to open numerous doors for the Foundation and allow for new opportunities. The incentive program will need to be a group effort by the membership in order to be successful, but if we work together this can be a great benefit for not only NALF, but also the entire membership.
Itâ€™s that time of year when the grass turns green, spring bull sales come to an end and calving wraps up. Iâ€™m sure most of you are in good spirits considering the early spring, high cattle prices and timely moisture in many parts of the country. Iâ€™m also sure most of you would say, and I agree, itâ€™s been a long time coming and much needed.
There have been many changes at NALF during the last six months. After coming off a great National Western Stock Show, NALF had a wonderful presence at the Annual Cattle Industry Conference and NCBA Trade Show in Nashville. The NALF booth was well received and was the only booth on the trade show floor with live cattle on exhibit for the commercial cattle industry to view. It was good for our breed to gain additional exposure as we attempt to increase our registry and market penetration of the commercial cow-calf business. During this same period the NALF office building was sold and operations were relocated to a more efficiently-sized office to accommodate our size and trim expenses.
What do Bovi-Shield, Dectomax, Draxxin, Scourguard, CattleMaster, CIDR, Synovex, LA-200 and MGA all have in common?
If you answered Pfizer products I will give it to you, but the real answer is â€œproducts you already use that could put money directly into NALF coffers.â€
