LEXINGTON, Ky. — Alltech’s fifth annual Global 500, set for Dec. 4-6 in Lexington, Ky., 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 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.”

The program will feature presentations on branding, social media in agriculture and finding new opportunities in challenging times.

Dairy producers will explore such topics as breakthroughs in nutrition, strategies to manage feed costs and emerging markets.

Beef producers will delve into such issues as the future marketplace, consumer demands, meat quality, greenhouse gasses and feed yard management.

The Global 500 registration fee is $325. The early fee is $200 if registered by Nov. 9. For more information and to register, visit alltech.com/global500, and use the invitation code G124.
