Anxiously, I awaited the opportunity to be in a room of international wisdom. The agenda had been reviewed and re-reviewed. As we approached the 2014 Alltech Symposium in Lexington, KY, I had been fully prepared {and excited} to attend sessions about drones, soil microbes and non-traditional farms. What fascinated me the most was their algae project. Over the last decade, I’ve been told many times by family, by friends and even doctors, to try taking a Fish Oil supplement to improve Crohn’s & Ulcerative Colitis conditions.
Over the last year I have attended my fair share of conferences, seminars and sessions. I have had the opportunity to share what I have learned with groups from coast to coast and met people from all walks of life. I consider myself incredibly fortunate to be able to hear some of the top experts in their field speak and I have tried to soak up every bit of knowledge I can from them.

A couple of weeks back, I was invited to attend Alltech's 30th Annual International Symposium in Lexington, Kentucky. This is the second year I have attended and I can honestly say that I came home with so many ideas and thoughts that it is hard to get through them all. Have you ever thought of what goes on beneath your feet? The following will make you think twice about calling that black stuff dirt. Sitting at the Symposium, I felt as if some farmers are looking at the big picture and not the whole picture.
