Alltech to present 37 papers next week

[Lexington, KENTUCKY]- Alltech, a global leader in natural animal nutrition, headquartered in Nicholasville, Kentucky, will present 37 papers next week in conjunction with the 2010 Annual Meetings of the American Dairy Science Association (ADSA), Poultry Science Association (PSA), Asociación Mexicana de Producción Animal (AMPA), Canadian Society of Animal Science (CSAS), American Society of Animal Science (ASAS), and ASAS Western Section (WSASAS) in Denver, Colorado.

The president and founder of Alltech, Dr. Pearse Lyons remarked, “This achievement is a result of our primacy in science and demonstrates our commitment to lead the pack in research. The numbers of papers being presented next week are just a small representation of the research behind all of our cutting-edge products.”

Kate Jacques, Alltech’s director of nutrition, stated “We’re excited about the work that will be presented in Denver. It represents a cross-section of the range of projects we are funding in animal science across the world and moves our understanding of the science behind our products to a new level.
