Why are you Agriculture Proud? While at this week’s Alltech Symposium I had the opportunity to share a little about my blog and many great farmers featured during the March series. View the post on Alltech’s website.
It was great to feature so many farmers and ranchers from across the United States, however, our world is much bigger than that country. Symposium offers such a great opportunity to meet many farmers, ranchers, business people, and scientists involved in producing food around the globe.
Feeding the world is indeed a global effort and it is inspiring to see so many excited about the future of Agriculture!
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.

“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!
