Alltech plans North America Lecture Tour

More than 2,500 expected to attend sessions

From February 12-March 1, more than 2,500 agriculture industry professionals are expected to attend one of the 23 stops on the 2013 Alltech North America Lecture Tour to explore the latest advances in nutritional technologies and share ideas for keeping their operations efficient, profitable and sustainable. 

Alltech’s 28th annual North American Lecture Tour , themed “Stay Curious,” features presentations highlighting the latest developments in crop science, rumen nutrition, programmed nutrition, algae applications, fertility, mycotoxins, social media and branding.  These presentations are:

•Branding: 8 Key Principles- Building and maintaining an advantage through branding in an increasingly competitive and interconnected world.•Solutions are Interactions: Nutrition at the Cell Level is the Advantage-What we must understand to maximize productivity. If the world record is 72,000 pounds of milk, why do we settle for 20,000-plus pounds? Is the grading system out of date? What are the obstacles to maximizing Efficiency, Profitability and Sustainability?•Stay Curious: Seven Challenges to Implement- Algae, can it revolutionize the way we feed? What is a carbon footprint, and why is it important to you? Let’s take a look at our land- how will we feed 9 billion people by 2050?

“You have to embrace new technologies, but you must understand what these new technologies can do. Curiosity fuels solutions. Why not get 25 more pounds of beef per cow per year? Why not achieve 35 pigs per sow per year? Why not gain one ton more grain per acre?” said Dr. Pearse Lyons, president and founder of Alltech. “We need to ask ourselves these questions. This year, let’s be different. Let’s challenge ourselves.”
