Improving Animal Health & Nutrition Worldwide - Diamond V

March 20, 2015

The Agriculture Council of America (ACA) has marked a day each year, National Ag Day, for public awareness of agriculture’s impact. It’s been a day of celebration across the nation and globally and especially in Iowa.

Iowa farmers and agricultural companies around the state have celebrated ongoing success in helping to grow Iowa as a leader in agricultural innovation. Following another great National Ag Day, we can reflect on Iowa’s leadership in agriculture and how proud we are to be an Iowa company.

At Diamond V, we have worked hard to become a leader and trusted expert in all-natural nutritional health products that improve nutrition, health, and performance in livestock, poultry, aquaculture species, and companion animals. For more than 70 years, research by our teams of scientists worldwide has lead to the development of innovative products that promote safe, efficient, animal production and enhance food safety. We’ve made ensuring the health and well-being of animals around the globe a top priority. Just as important, however, has been to ensure the cost efficiency of our products for the world’s farmers. With our global headquarters and research and innovation center located in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, Diamond V has built on its prime location in a state ideal for companies looking to stay at the forefront of agriculture.

National Ag Day is the perfect chance to highlight the role Iowa has played in our nation’s agricultural history. Iowa is not only the leading producer of corn, pork, and eggs, but also ranks second in overall national agricultural exports. Our state also provides companies access to top resources to spur new development and technology in the ag industries. Iowa’s leadership is integral to feeding the world. We could not be more excited to continue our growth in Iowa and applaud the ACA’s National Ag Day program for increasing awareness of U.S. agriculture and its importance to consumers everywhere.
