Alltech has received a record number of applicants to its Young Scientist Program — 842 students have already submitted applications globally with nearly two months of registration remaining.

“In a year of gloom and doom in the world economy, it is thrilling for us to
see so many young minds interested in our industry,” said Dr. Pearse Lyons,
president and founder of Alltech. “The Alltech Young Scientist Program is an
incredible venue for undergraduate and graduate students to involve themselves
professionally in animal science on a global level.”

The winners of the
undergraduate and graduate Young Scientist Awards will be announced
during Alltech’s 25th International Animal Health and Nutrition
Symposium
 May 17 – 20, 2009.
