Colorado Serum Company started
in the early 1900ís when Hog Cholera disease was decimating the
swine industry in the United States.
Dr. J.N. Huff, a graduate of
the Kansas City Veterinary College, moved to Denver, CO in 1922 to
open a satellite manufacturing plant to the original
"American Serum Company" founded in Sioux City, IA.
Denverís high altitude provided hogs with enriched blood, so
Colorado was considered an ideal environment for producing a new
antiserum for Hog Cholera. In 1923, the small Denver plant began
production and shortly thereafter separated from American Serum to
become Colorado Serum Company. Hog Cholera was eventually
eradicated from the United States.
Colorado Serum Company went on
to expand its product lines to include a full range of large
animal biologicals, large animal veterinary instruments,
veterinary diagnostics, specialty products, and laboratory
reagents. The facilities now cover 22 acres in Denver and contain
all manufacturing as well as administrative offices. Products are
marketed and distributed by numerous animal health companies
across the globe.
Colorado Serum Company is proud to be a 4th
generation family-owned company, on the cutting edge of modern
science while continuing the valuable and time honored traditions
of personal and responsive service.
