I never turn down an opportunity to talk with Alltech founder and president, Dr. Pearse Lyons. The 2017 Cattle Industry Convention and NCBA Trade Show provided my most recent conversation with the idea man and naturally, we talked ONE: The Alltech Ideas Conference (ONE17) which is set for May 21-24 in Lexington, Kentucky. The event will “inspire farmers, ranchers, producers, suppliers and influencers in every species and segment across production agriculture to create disruption and be prepared to harness its potential — or risk being rendered irrelevant.”
“Our goal is to help our partners in agriculture put their ideas into action,” said Dr. Lyons. “If you want to activate your vision, gain a more global perspective and connect with the most innovative minds in agriculture, ONE17 is the only place to be.”
“ONE is meant to encourage, empower and, most importantly, challenge us,” said Dr. Lyons. “We want individuals to leave feeling like they were part of a life-changing development for the industry and feel empowered to implement solutions back home.”
He said the key to ONE is ONE. ONE place to go to get new ideas. ONE opportunity to show your ideas.
I believe this will be my fifth Alltech annual symposium to attend and each time I am wowed, inspired and excited to bring you the latest topics, ideas and innovations discussed. The AgWired team will once be on-site throughout the festivities and serve as a Virtual Ag Newsroom creating content you can use. Listen to my complete converstation with Dr. Lyons here:
