Alltech Annual International Symposium | #AgFuture

I’m on the road again this week, in Lexington, Kentucky. Many know Lexington for the University of Kentucky Wildcat Basketball or the legendary horse racing and extremely nice barns that dot the rolling green hills. Some may even know Eastern Kentucky for its trail of Bourbon Distilleries. Lexington is also home to Alltech – a company focused on the scientific aspects of animal nutrition and health.

Alltech is a global leader in the animal health and nutrition industry and among the top ten animal health companies in the world, focused on natural scientific solutions to today’s biggest agriculture and food industry challenges. Headquartered in Lexington, Kentucky, Alltech has offices and distributors in 128 countries; 4 bioscience centers; and 31 manufacturing facilities located strategically throughout the world.

“Exciting technological and environmental advancements have revolutionized Alltech. We hope our industry’s decision makers and influencers will help us propel that transformation further to create a new world of sustainability for the benefit of all.” – Dr. Pearse Lyons

I’m here for the 2012 Alltech Annual International Symposium. With 13 sessions, 150 speakers and 21 discussion dinners it’s bound to be an interesting week. The Symposium covers everything from Beef, Dairy, Poultry, and Aquaculture to IT, Legal Issues, Agribusiness, Companion Animal, and Food topics. I’ll be attending the Beef series, but will also have friends here who may be attending other sessions.

I’ll be sharing more on my notes throughout the coming weeks and will be sure to include links to friends’ posts from the Symposium. Be sure to follow my updates on Facebook, or you can follow the Symposium updates on Twitter through the #AgFuture stream or @Alltech‘s page. We’ll be having a Tweetup on Monday night, so I’ll have the opportunity to meet more great Agriculture folks from the Social Media world!
