Alltech Inc. will hold the 2011 International Animal Health and Nutrition Industry Symposium from May 22 to 25 in Lexington, Ky. The program is attended by a broad cross section of the International and North American feed and food industries.

The theme of the 2011 Symposium will be “Changing the Game.”

“Today’s challenges signal that it is time to rewrite the play book,” stated Dr. Pearse Lyons, president and founder of Alltech. “Raw materials are becoming rare materials. Least-cost rations offer one examples of failed strategies. Sustainability is questionable with conventional practices and consumer confidence is kept at bay.”

The Symposium will address issues relating to feeding up to 9 billion inhabitants of the world by 2050. Special focus sessions will be devoted to aqualculture, beef, dairy, equine, poultry, pig production, pet foods, traceability and communication in agriculture. A focussed discussion will involved the technology to maximize the release of nutrients from DDGSs and other feedstuffs.
