Alltech Demonstrates Primacy in Science at 2014 JAM with Presidential Pick

[LEXINGTON, Ky.] – Global animal health and nutrition leader Alltech will be well represented at the joint annual meeting (JAM) of the American Dairy Science Association (ADSA), the American Society of Animal Science (ASAS), and the Canadian Society of Animal Science (CSAS) in Kansas City, Missouri, July 20–24. In addition to presenting a dozen abstracts of the company’s latest research, Alltech was also invited to showcase a poster presentation in the prestigious Presidential Picks.

Alltech and University of Kentucky Nutrition Research Alliance poster, “Polymers molecularly imprinted with ergotamine: recognition properties to template and related alkaloids,” by M. B. Kudupoje, E. S. Vanzant, A. Yiannikouris, K. A. Dawson, and K. R. McLeod was selected for this year’s Presidential Picks, one of the highest honors for JAM poster presenters. The posters are chosen by the ASAS past president, president and president-elect. Of the more than 1,200 papers submitted this year, only 36 were selected for this esteemed distinction.

“Innovation and entrepreneurship fuel our scientific research and this year was no exception to the quality data we obtained,” said Dr. Karl Dawson, vice president and chief scientific officer at Alltech. “Alltech has successfully partnered with top academic institutions throughout the world to research long-term solutions to the key issues facing our industry and we look forward to sharing this information at JAM.”
