The full value of a true partnership
You’ve told us that doing business today is different. And, we’ve been listening. With low cattle inventories, rising capital requirements and more market volatility, it’s clear your business is as challenging as ever. We also understand that, to really help you address these challenges, we need to do business differently. This approach — this partnership — is called Full Value Beef.
Full Value Beef is about building partnerships with you, our customer. It starts with identifying your needs and together discovering opportunities that impact your operation’s profitability.
Many of our customers are already applying the value of their Elanco partnerships to help meet their needs and face their biggest challenges. Others are just getting started, learning more about how Elanco’s capabilities match up to their commitments and concerns and how this can have a significant impact on their operation. The foundation of Full Value Beef is built upon these four drivers:
Identify, quantify and reduce the total impact of disease and parasites
Optimize nutritional programs to maximize returns
Maximize saleable output
Build assurance in your products marketed to consumers; enable access to markets and technologies
