Alltech releases 2009 North American Lecture Tour schedule

Alltech will get its annual North American Lecture Tour (NALT) under way in January, visiting various locations in both the United States and Canada. This year’s theme is “Self-Sufficiency or Sustainability: Meeting Today’s Needs without Compromising Tomorrow.”

“Agriculture is at a crossroads,” said Dr. Pearse Lyons, president of Alltech.  “We can either embrace new technology or be left behind.  It is no longer good enough to produce safe and cost-effective food.  The consumer is demanding that we look at our environmental impact and be accountable for our actions.  While the farmers have always derived their living from the land, it is paramount that we take the next step to ensure our future"and the future of agriculture.”
 
The material and ideas discussed at this year’s NALT will go hand-in-hand with the topic on which Alltech based its upcoming feed symposium: “The Sustainability Principle: The Next Agricultural Imperative.”
 
Speakers joining Dr. Lyons on the lecture tour this year will be:
Dr. James Pierce, coordinator of monogastric research, Alltech
Dr. Ronan Power, director of research, Alltech
Dr. Karl Dawson, director of worldwide research, Alltech
Juan Gomez, North American product champion for Alltech’s NuPro®
