What We Do - The Science of Animal Nutrition and Health​

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 Dr. Pearse Lyons, Alltech improves the health and performance of people, animals and plants by adding nutritional value naturally through our innovative use of yeast fermentation, enzyme technology, algae and nutrigenomics. 

The European Bioscience Centre was opened in Dunboyne, Co. Meath, Ireland in 1999. The facility is home to our European Headquarters and supports 42 countries and 26 different languages. The Bioscience Centre offers a unique advantage as it houses all support functions for the European market.

The research facility in Dunboyne has a strong emphasis on fundamental research encompassing biotechnology, microbiology and chemistry-based disciplines. Our core strength, yeast technology, is researched here, where Alltech scientists look at using yeast cell wall components to bind mycotoxins and bacteria that damage the gut.

Driving Beef Performance this Winter

The welcome increase in beef prices over the last few weeks is leading to more optimism with beef finishers, however, we still have some way to go to meet the price highs of two years ago. On the positive side we have very good value energy prices with barley and maize meal cheaper this year compared to recent years.

Getting Purchased Cattle Off to the Best Possible Start

With the autumn sales starting to gather pace and expecting to peak over the next 4-6 weeks, there is strong demand for cattle and good prices are being paid. This is making it increasingly important to keep animals healthy and thriving. Today, the greatest challenge beef finishers face aside from the poor beef prices are getting cattle started onto a new diet upon arrival and issues with respiratory problems. Failure to adequately address these issues impacts dramatically on productivity.
