nafb-15-253-edited Alltech had several representatives on hand during the 2015 National Association of Farm Broadcasters (NAFB) Convention to discuss their efforts to “future-proof” the company’s latest innovations by ensuring that any transitions in technology will provide producers with continued or increased success in the future.

Antibiotics are one of the major points of discussion for the livestock industry this year, and Aidan Connolly, Alltech’s Chief Innovation Officer, sat down with AgWired to discuss the impact of the global movement toward antibiotic restriction, and several innovative Alltech management strategies developed to make the transition a smooth one for producers.

I think the message we’re trying to give to producers is that this isn’t all negative,” he said. “These changes require better management, and they will require producers to think differently, but we have in fact found some of new management strategies and ideas that will allow producers to become even more profitable than producers using antibiotics, if done effectively.” Listen to Jamie’s full interview with Aidan on antibiotics here:

Alltech’s recent acquisition of MasterFeeds, a Canadian feed operator, and what the acquisition means for the future of the company and its customers, was another topic of discussion. Listen to more on the Masterfeeds acquisition:
