What We Do - The Science of Animal Health and Nutrition

Alltech helps farmers feed the world, raise healthy animals, and protect the environment through nutritional innovation. More than thirty years of research in animal nutrition and health have allowed us to develop and manufacture innovative, natural feed supplements that improve animal performance, the feed industry and the farmer's bottom line… naturally!

Founded in 1980 by Irish entrepreneur and scientist Dr. Pearse Lyons, Alltech improves the health and performance of people, animals and plants through nutrition and scientific innovation, particularly yeast-based technology, nutrigenomics and algae. With more than 100 manufacturing sites globally, Alltech is the leading producer and processor of yeast and organic trace minerals, and its flagship algae production facility in Kentucky is one of only two of its kind in the world

How can your sows get more from fewer minerals?

Traditionally, mineral supplementation has been achieved through the use of inorganic minerals. However, developing technologies have ushered in a new era in mineral nutrition.

Pig-ease: Using environmental control to help pigs adapt and grow

Environmental control in pig housing is important for animal growth and health. Modern farms have computer-controlled systems that are adjusted automatically to optimize the environment depending on the stage of growth or reproduction, based on ideal temperature curves established from research and models. For example, for growing pigs, temperature needs to decrease by set amounts as they increase in body weight. However, it is important to ensure the correct growth curve is selected in any automated system to account for breed, age and health of the animals.
