Alltech’s fifth annual Global 500, 4 to 6 December, 2012, in Lexington, Kentucky, USA, will feature industry experts who will address the changing future of the dairy and beef industries.
In 2011, more than 700 beef and dairy producers from 32 countries attended and the event is expected to attract more than 1,000 attendees this year.
“Global 500 has gone from a powerful event to an astounding event,” said Dr. Pearse Lyons, president and founder of Alltech. “In a few short years we’ve managed to get some of the industry’s most successful producers to attend and get involved in discussions that are paving the way to a future of opportunity and profitability.”
Producers and industry leaders will have the opportunity to network, discuss and discover new opportunities and challenges for 2013. The programme 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.
The Global 500 registration fee is $325. The early registration fee is $200 if registered by November 9. The registration fee includes access to all Global 500 sessions, organised functions, luncheons and dinners December 4 through 6.
