We are pleased to share an exciting new announcement with you from Pfizer Animal Genetics. They are preparing to launch a new high density 50,000 marker panel to increase the accuracy of our selection decisions. Join our conversation to learn how it can benefit your business.

Video fileVideo Feature: Hormones… The facts may surprise you!, Hormones are a necessary part of life and their use in the production of our food significantly reduces the carbon footprint associated with a steak or glass of milk. So before you pay the extra money for hormone-free (which really there aren’t such products), make sure you know the facts.
