LANSING, Mich., February 17, 2023 — Neogen® Corporation (NASDAQ: NEOG) announced today the recipients of Supervised Agricultural Experience (SAE) Grants, funded through the Company’s 2022 partnership agreement with the National FFA Foundation.

The Company pledged to donate $2 to National FFA for each bottle of Prozap® StandGuard® Pour-On horn fly and lice control solution sold from October 1, 2021, through March 31, 2022.

In December 2022, Neogen and National FFA worked together to select ten recipients from FFA chapters across the United States to each receive a $1,000 grant to support their SAE. Neogen also donated an additional $1,000 to each recipient’s FFA chapter.

SAE Grants are designed to help FFA members create or expand their SAE, a requirement that all FFA members must complete. An SAE requires FFA members to create and operate an agriculture-related business, work at an agriculture-related business, or conduct an agricultural research experience. Upon completion, FFA members must submit a comprehensive report regarding their career development experience.

“The members of the National FFA are the future of our industry, across all aspects of food and animal safety. It is important to Neogen to support these students and help them gain the knowledge they need to be the next generation of production farmers, veterinarians, teachers, chemists, entrepreneurs, and business leaders,” said John Adent, Neogen’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “We are proud to support the National FFA Organization and the development of young people in agriculture.”

“We appreciate Neogen’s continued support of National FFA and dedication to creating opportunities for our members,” said Molly Ball, President of the National FFA Foundation and Chief Marketing Officer of the National FFA Organization. “By funding SAE Grants, Neogen is helping FFA members gain hands-on experience and develop crucial career skills that will serve them well in the future.”
