Alltech and KEENAN an Alltech company will be at the forefront of innovation at this year’s National Ploughing Championships from 19-21 Sept. 2017. Combining their knowledge and expertise in animal nutrition, Alltech and KEENAN are showcasing how real Irish farmers are getting real results using the Alltech and Keenan systems at this year’s ploughing championships.

Visitors to the Alltech and KEENAN stand will learn about Alltech’s microbial diversity programme aims to maximise gut health and support producers by enabling them to minimise antibiotic usage while maintaining health and productivity. This gut health management programme can be implemented on-farm for ruminant, poultry and pig producers.

Alltech and KEENAN have also been short listed in the Innovation Arena Awards at the National Ploughing Championship. Following on from being awarded the Agricultural Laboratory of the Year by the Irish Laboratory Awards recently, the research team at Alltech Ireland have now been shortlisted for the NPA Innovation Arena Awards for their microbial diversity programme.

KEENAN’s new InTouch controller (which allows greater connectivity and user features) is an entrant in the technology category and the hugely anticipated KEENAN MechFiber 345SP Self Propelled paddle mixer is a contester in the machine engineering innovation category. The KEENAN Self Propelled machine will take centre-stage in the Innovation Arena where Irish farmers can get a first-hand look at this long-awaited development from the Borris-based engineering company.
