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 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.

Dairy news: Are low butterfat levels costing you money?

As we approach midsummer, there is a lot of discussion surrounding low butterfat levels in milk. While a decline in butterfat percentages are a common occurrence during spring months when cows are grazing lush grass, this issue can continue through the summer months. Reduced butterfat levels are an even bigger issue in this post quota era, as there is no penalty for over producing butterfat, however, increasing levels of butterfat should not be at the expense of milk protein.
