2017 Sponsor Spotlight: JBS United
JBS United is a 2017 Targeting Excellence Platinum Sponsor and has been a partner since the inception of Targeting Excellence in 2014.
Founded in 1956 in a small one-room office, John B. Swisher has grown his vision into the American dream. The vision is simple, provide value to the producer and both companies will be successful. JBS United remains more committed than ever to providing proven, research-based nutrition and health solutions that create value for livestock producers. Originally known as United Feeds, JBS United sets itself apart by intimately knowing your business and understanding what you need to be more successful. That guiding principle is still the foundation of JBS United – focus on the customer and their success.
Today, JBS United offers diverse livestock nutrition and innovative health products globally through the JBS United or affiliate brands. Headquartered in Sheridan, Indiana, our team members are positioned around the nation to assist customers with their business needs. JBS United has the capabilities of a massive organization while maintaining the agility of a small company. The JBS United organization now extends to 23 countries, including South Korea, the Philippines, and locations in South America and Europe.

Thank you JBS United for helping SUPPORT Students in Food Animal AGRICULTURE!
Targeting Excellence has set a goal in 2017 to raise $225,000 in scholarship funds that will be awarded to students in 2018. Committees comprised of individuals from food production systems, allied industries and university professors are volunteering their time and resources to raise these funds from national and regional sponsors. In keeping with our mission these committees are also actively planning events in 2017 for Indiana, Iowa, Minnesota, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin that will allow students and industry leaders the opportunity to meet and network. Targeting Excellence hopes to see you at one or more of these events this year.
