industries evolve, Alltech is continually exploring the latest issues and
trends, while providing producers with a clear vision for a profitable and
sustainable future. Alltech’s fifth annual Global 500, December 4 to 6, 2012, in Lexington,

powerful event to an astounding event,” said Dr. Pearse Lyons, president and

industry’s most successful producers to attend and get involved in discussions
that are paving the way to a future of opportunity and profitability.”

opportunities and challenges for 2013.The program will feature presentations on
branding, social media in agriculture and finding new opportunities in
challenging times. Dairy producers will explore topics including breakthroughs
in nutrition, strategies to manage feed costs, and emerging markets. Beef
producers will delve into issues such as the future marketplace, consumer
demands, meat quality, greenhouse gasses and feed yard management. In addition to
an array of presentations, attendees will be invited to take part in discussion
dinners, breakout sessions and a number of farm tours.
“Through this event, we can
explore ways to make farming more profitable and sustainable and share new
strategies and technologies to make dairy and beef production more efficient,” Lyons said. “This will
