During this year’s 28th annual North American Lecture Tour, Alltech will be challenging attendees to Stay Curious. The 23- stop tour, taking place from Feb.12- March 1, will encourage attendees to stretch beyond conventional practices and explore how the latest technological developments can move the agriculture industry forward today.
Stay Curious topics include:
CURIOUS about branding and building profit from the core? Ideas for building and maintaining an advantage through branding in an increasingly competitive and interconnected world.
CURIOUS about a natural, pure, sustainable source of fatty acids and high quality proteins? Algae, can it revolutionize the way we feed?
CURIOUS about your carbon footprint? What is a carbon footprint, and why is it important to you? The New Zealand Government will subsidize emissions from farmers until at least 2015; how long will taxpayers subsidize the agri-sector, which accounts for 50 percent of its carbon emissions? As carbon footprint comes under the microscope, how can we respond to address these challenges?
CURIOUS about nutritional breakthroughs and solutions? What we must understand to maximize productivity. If the world record is 72,000 pounds of milk, why do we settle for 20,000+ pounds? Is the grading system out of date? What are the obstacles to maximizing EPS (Efficiency, Profitability and Sustainability)?
