Four Decades


For 40 years, S&A has helped build and support top-tier
brands and make lasting contributions in the animal health industry. In
celebration of our 40th anniversary, here’s a retrospective of
moments in our history that made us who we are today.


The Story Begins

On the Move

S&A moves out of Chuck’s house and into an office in City Center Square in downtown Kansas City, Mo. 1982 1984

Seeding Our Foundation

Work for MigroSeeds, AgriPro and McCurdy establishes S&A as experts in agriculture and lays the foundation for our future work in animal health.

The Classics
