[Dunboyne, IRELAND] - Beef consumption has fallen globally and weak harvests, drought and flooding have resulted in the cost of feed rising. This is a tough time for beef producers and farmers. Alltech’s Global Beef 500 will take place this December 4-5, 2012 in Lexington, Kentucky, USA. For the fifth year, leaders from the beef industry will converge to discuss these issues and how to move forward under the EPS principle – Efficiency, Profitability, Sustainability.
Steve Van Dyke, who owns a 600 cow/calf cattle operation near Brookings, South Dakota, attended Global 500 last year for the first time and would like to attend again.
“The Global 500 was different from other beef events I've attended because it offers a worldwide perspective on beef production, beef sustainability, and beef quality improvement,” said Van Dyke. “Alltech's Global 500 provides information to people in all phases of beef production, but always in an insightful way.”
This year’s agenda features a plenary session, including presentations on branding beef, the EPS principle, social media and getting the most out of your workforce. In addition, Global Beef 500 boasts a range of talks, featuring everything that you need to know about the future of the industry, tailored for the progressive beef producer and farmer. Highlights from the 2012 Global Beef 500 Programme include:
“As the global focus shifts to more green and sustainable production, the pressure is on beef farmers and producers to figure out how to comply, while still remaining efficient and sustainable. Even after implementing more sustainable practises it is then necessary to market products appropriately,” said Dr. Pearse Lyons, president and founder of Alltech. “This year at Global Beef 500 Alltech has developed a programme that will aim to address all of the current issues facing beef producers and will also look at future developments that will affect the industry and how to manage them.”
