Global 500 Event Travels to Normandy!

Global 500 Event Travels to Normandy! Norman takes a break at Global 500.
This week we have welcomed a fantastic group of 761 farmers to Alltech’s Global 500 event. The truly international element of this event cannot be underestimated. Attendees have travelled from over 50 countries and simultaneous translation has been provided in 8 languages. Next year Global 500 will once again be held in Europe – this time in Normandy, France. The Normandy region is the heart of the French ruminant industry; there are over 580,000 dairy cows and over a quarter of a million beef cattle in Normandy residing on 12,500 dairy farms and 5,800 beef units. An impressive 17,000 people are directly employed in agriculture in Normandy. During the 2014 Global 500, attendees will have the opportunity to tour many of the most efficient, profitable, and sustainable farms in the region.
