Elanco is committed to developing products that are safe for animals, the environment and consumers.

Elanco seeks solutions to control disease and enhance the production efficiency of all food-producing animals as well as therapeutic agents for managing acute and chronic diseases and parasites in companion animals.

Heifer and Elanco issued a joint mission statement for their cooperative agreement:

"How animals are raised is fundamental to the work of ending hunger and poverty around the world. Healthy animals help create healthy livelihoods, healthy communities, healthy futures. The coming together of Heifer International and Elanco helps complete the circle of possibility for hungry people everywhere; a shared commitment to providing trusted solutions -- for animals and people alike."

Heifer's mission is to end hunger and poverty while caring for the earth. For more than 60 years, Heifer International has provided livestock and environmentally sound agricultural training to improve the lives of those who struggle daily for reliable sources of food and income. Heifer is currently working in more than 57 countries, including the U.S., to help families and communities become more self-reliant. Since 1944 it has helped 48 million people through training in livestock development and livestock gifts that multiply. Every gift of an animal provides direct benefits such as milk, eggs, wool, fertilizer, and indirect benefits that increase family incomes for better housing, nutrition, health care and school fees for children. Recipients "Pass on the Gift" of offspring of their cows, goats and other livestock to others in an ever-widening circle of hope. In addition to Elanco, Heifer International has corporate partnerships with the American Veterinary Medicine Association, Dr. Hauschka Skin Care, Green Mountain Coffee Roasters, Organic Valley of Family Farms and Scholastic.
