Alltech hosting dairy leaders at Global Dairy 500


LEXINGTON, Ky. — The 2010 Global Dairy 500 will be held in Lexington, Kentucky, Nov. 1-4, hosted by Alltech, a global animal nutrition company.


The Global Dairy 500 is designed to identify future trends of dairy production and dairy nutrition while meeting short term expectations. The program’s agenda is targeted towards dairymen interested in growing their business through progressive technology.

This year’s program, Sustainability in a Changing World, will urge delegates to gain knowledge and share ideas about sustainable strategies and practices that can be implemented now and in the future.

Participants from around the world are invited to a global forum where dairy is the only topic and dairy farmers are the main drivers. Countries with heavy dairy influence, such as New Zealand, China, South Africa and Ireland will all be represented.

The four keynote speakers and topics are:

Protecting your image: Why the agricultural industry needs branding more than ever; Pearse Lyons, Alltech.

Future of feed formulations: Improving ruminant health with new technologies; Jay Johnston, Ritchie Feed and Seed.

Crisis management: Sustaining a business in turbulent times; Peter Kerr, Kerr Communication.

Feed efficiency: Increasing the bottom line without compromising quality; Mike Hutjens, University of Illinois.


Attendees will learn how economic sustainability practices go hand-in-hand with increased profits and discuss how reducing material and energy inputs can significantly lower costs.
