In commenting on Q2 results Jack Bendheim, Chairman, president and CEO stated, "we are encouraged by the continued progress of our Animal Health business in the face of numerous economic and market challenges," He added "growth in international markets demonstrates the strength of our portfolio and has more than offset domestic sales declines from the ongoing difficult dairy sector and the loss of a vaccine distribution arrangement. Overall, international regions grew despite unfavorable currency and economic conditions in certain countries. Our Mineral Nutrition business showed encouraging progress in the quarter, even though profitability continues to be below last year.

Bendheim concluded, "we continue to invest operating expense dollars to develop future growth opportunities. At the same time, we have minimized operational spending as much as possible to protect current year profitability,"
