BRAKKE CONSULTING VIEWPOINT
 
Early in 2007 Brakke Consulting was approached by individuals in the industry asking if we would become involved in organizing, developing, and publishing a “History of the U.S. Animal Health Industry”. Since then, BCI has organized the activity, talked to a number of individuals, and recently signed an agreement with Advanstar Communications to manage the project from gathering the information to publishing the final, gift-quality, 11x13 book.  As we’ve moved this project forward over the past few months, we’ve been encouraged regarding the industry’s interest in having the history published in a high-quality gift document.
 
In order to bring our vision to fruition, we need assistance  from you, the participants in our industry.  From financial support, to suggesting individuals who can help us chart the history of your companies' contributions to the industry, your support is critical to the success of this endeavor.
 
Please email me at rbrakke@brakkeconsulting.com if you'd like to be a part of this landmark project. We look forward to hearing from you regarding your firm’s support for this effort to document the “History of the US Animal Health Industry.” 
 
Have a great Holiday Season and a successful 2008!!  HAPPY NEW YEAR!!
 
Ron Brakke
