Alltech Research Unveils 10 Abstracts at 2013 PSA

[LEXINGTON, Ky.] – Global animal health and nutrition company Alltech will present 10 abstracts at this year's Poultry Science Association meeting in San Diego, Calif., July 22- 25. The research, conducted with the University of Kentucky, North Carolina State University and the Federal University of Viçosa, Brazil, will highlight the company’s latest breakthroughs in poultry nutrition.

"New product development at Alltech is the direct result of synergy between the company’s primacy in science and our understanding of customers’ needs and expectations,” said Paulo Rigolin, global poultry director at Alltech. “Distinguished events, such as the Poultry Science Association meeting, provide us a unique opportunity to collaborate with industry members worldwide and share some of our latest research in programmed nutrition, mineral management, True-Check in vitro screening, growth permitters and algae.”

The abstracts that will be presented are entitled:
