Alltech showcases natural pig production at World Pork Expo

[Lexington, Kentucky] -Global animal health company Alltech plans to give participants at the World Pork Expo a "Guide to Natural Pig Production."

Alltech, which has provided natural solutions to the feed and food industries since 1980, will once again host a booth dedicated to pig nutrition at the World Pork Expo in Des Moines, Iowa, June 8-10.? This year's booth will showcase three of Alltech's products: Sel-Plex?, Bioplex? Trace Minerals and Bio-Mos?.

As of January 1, 2006, the European Union banned the use of antibiotic growth promoters in animal production, opening doors for alternative nutritional strategies such as Alltech's products.

"This year's theme explains the dynamic nature of Alltech's approach to the swine industry. By listening to and learning from the marketplace, we are inspired to think more creatively about natural agriculture and pork production, from the ground up," said Dr. Pearse Lyons, president of Alltech.

In addition to the booth, Alltech has also invited top swine producers, retailers and distributors to attend a barbeque during the World Pork Expo.

After more than 25 years in the animal health world, Alltech's presence has grown into a global company with offices and distributors in 85 countries and more than 1,700 employees worldwide.? For more information on Alltech and the World Pork Expo, please visit and
