Veterinarians, animal health dealers, and distributors are helping fund more than 1600 national Future Farmers of America (FFA) organization chapters across the country through this year’s Zoetis industry support program.
Since 2008, the annual program has helped provide local FFA chapters with funds for different opportunities, including financing leadership development events and class projects for student members; purchasing equipment for school farms and classrooms; building new animal agriculture facilities; securing blue jackets; and sending members to the National FFA Convention & Expo.
“This program provides a unique opportunity for our customers to support their communities by extending donations to their local FFA chapter or chapters,” said Jon Lowe, senior vice-president, U.S. cattle and equine at Zoetis.
“Our industry support program spreads donations across thousands of FFA chapters, which helps provide a variety of experiences to students across the country to further their education and to help safeguard the future of the agriculture industry.”
Each spring, all veterinary, animal health dealers, and distributor customers have the option to enroll in the program. Zoetis customers can allocate a portion of their purchases from eligible Zoetis cattle and equine product purchases to a local FFA chapter or chapters of their choice.
For more information about enrolling in the program in 2019, contact your local Zoetis representative.
