Although this type of press release is a bit out of our scope, with so many people looking for employment, we felt the need to share in Alltech's search for job applicants.  Good luck to any of you who may apply!!

Lexington, KY - Global animal health and nutrition company Alltech is strengthening its North America operations and seeking more than 20 new team members eager to take on its ambitious goals, including innovative projects in algae, life sciences and solutions for feeding a global population of 9 billion. Considered one of the world’s top ten animal health companies, Alltech continues to grow at 20% or more each year, and now employs 2,650 team members in 128 countries.
“Squeezed by raw material shortages, volatile weather, and record commodity prices, today’s farmer is facing dire threats to his business,” said Geoff Frank, Alltech’s sales manager for North America. “With 9 billion hungry mouths to feed by 2050, Alltech believes it is critical to provide greater local support to farms. A significant element in achieving this is hiring individuals who share Alltech’s mission of providing natural nutrition to animals and support to the local farmer, both of which ultimately contribute to feeding the world.”
