There are no longer any PMU farms in the U.S. However, there are a reported 19 “pee farms” remaining in Canada although NAERIC’s website states:

“There are 24 family-owned equine ranches that are members of NAERIC and contracted by Pfizer to collect pregnant mares’ urine (PMU). These equine ranches are located in the Canadian provinces of Manitoba (19) and Saskatchewan (5). All ranches are within reasonable proximity to Pfizer, in Brandon, Manitoba, where the initial PMU processing occurs”.

While there are no images available to the public of what the inside of these farms look like that we can find, here are some of the byproduct horses.
