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.

Controlling mastitis and somatic cell counts in your dairy herd

Farmers face many challenges on a daily basis when it comes to managing dairy cows. Two of the most common and prevailing issues affecting dairy cows in all corners of the globe are mastitis and high somatic cell counts (SCC). It is well established that a cow with an infected udder will not produce as much milk as a cow with an uninfected udder, this loss of milk contributes to two-thirds of the overall cost of mastitis. Similarly, an infected udder will have a direct impact on SCC which affects milk quality and the opportunity for premium pricing.

[DUNBOYNE, Ireland] – Alltech will be making a significant investment in a crop science research programme based at their European headquarters in Dunboyne, Co. Meath, Ireland. The announcement was made at their crop science seminar this week, which provided over 40 interested parties with an opportunity to increase their knowledge on crop production practices and allowed them to see first-hand the research that Alltech Crop Science is currently developing.
