Melanie Zanto, a single mother of four, is a smallholder farmer. Like many of her neighbors, shes tried to raise chickens before, but without access to vaccinations, her entire flock died. Trained by LIVES, she now has over 50 birds. And, shes also been trained to be a Community Livestock Worker, earning additional money by becoming the local go-to resource for animal health services, and better access to vaccinations. As Melanie says, Before, I did not have enough skill or knowledge to take care of my chickens. Now I do. With this extra money, I can now feed my children.

Grace Kunkel is taking calls from the honey bee hives this afternoon. Set a little way back from the barns, its peaceful in the sunny field, apart from the occasional curious bee doing a fly by. . One almost dinged me! she says. But its beautiful out here. I have two people helping me in the field today. Were a new team and were growing. But I find myself being pretty hands-on at times, taking care of the bees. . As a research scientist, Graces job is to plan and run research trials at the Purina Animal Nutrition Center in Gray Summit, Missouri. Each of the farms three honey bee sites house about 20 and 30 colonies, with about 40,000-60,000 bees per colony. Thats a few million bees if youre counting. Feeding and caring for them all is a year-round job that keeps this researcher busy as, well, a bee. . And Grace is about to get even busier. This fall, the Purina team will be launching a first-of-its-kind productPurina Hearty Bee, a supplement meant for use by commercial beekeepers. . This is my first product launch! says Grace. After being at Purina for two years, and seeing how far this whole project has come, I feel very proud to be involved. Ive learned so much about marketing and had the chance to help develop the marketing plan and materials. Its all new to me and Im loving it.
