Alpharma's Reach Teach Learn Initiative Targets Youth and Consumer Awareness

BRIDGEWATER, N.J., June 29 /PRNewswire/ -- Ask most parents of high school and college-age students and they'll tell you that their kids think they have all the answers to life's tough questions.

"There has never been a better time to familiarize students with current agricultural trends and how their decisions affect society," says Jeff Mellinger, Global Leader, Sales & Marketing for Alpharma Inc., Animal Health.
