ONTARIO, CANADA - Blair Cressman joins Steve Johns, Swine Industry Specialist, to increase support to the province's pork industry.

Mr Cressman has been a Territory Manager with Pfizer Animal Health in Manitoba since 2006 and has relocated with his family to Wellesley, Ontario.

As one of seven dedicated Pfizer territory managers across Canada focused entirely on the swine industry, Mr Cressman brings a wealth of knowledge about swine production, and together with Steve Johns will work with producers, swine production systems, feed companies and veterinarians in Ontario.

"Blair understands the Canadian swine industry, particularly in Manitoba and Ontario, where he has worked with some of the largest operations," says Tom Elskamp, National Sales Manager for Pfizer’s Canadian swine business unit. "He’s been a great asset to the Manitoba swine industry, and will bring his talents ‘back home’ where he’ll dedicate most of his efforts working directly with Ontario hog producers."

A native of Ontario, Mr Cressman grew up on a hog farm near Ayr, Ontario and graduated from the University of Guelph’s Bachelor of Science Agriculture programme with a major in animal science and specialization in animal nutrition and management. He joined Pfizer Animal Health after gaining two years of sales experience in the swine feed industry.

Pfizer Animal Health provides innovative solutions and animal health products – including anti-infectives, vaccines and feed additives – for every stage of swine production.
