“Henry Schein Animal Health locating in DeSoto County is exciting evidence that Mississippians can provide animal health industry leaders an advantage to achieve their goals in our state,” said MDA Executive Director Glenn McCullough, Jr. “We are grateful to the talented leaders in DeSoto County and professionals at the DeSoto County Economic Development Council for their teamwork with MDA to bring these new careers to Mississippians.”
