29/01/13: Alltech European Lecture Tour; rice mill expansion in Louisiana; silos in Nigeria

Details of Alltech’s 27th European Lecture Tours have been announced. This year, the series of talks, which runs from March 11-21, 2013, is titled Stay Curious: Can Advanced Nutritional Technology Deliver EPS (Efficiency, Profitability and Sustainability).
“Concerns about feed, feed ingredients and the effects of high performance rations on the environment, finite resource depletion, animal welfare, health and, ultimately, the health of consumers themselves, have come to the fore and placed feed in the spotlight. In order for producers to remain efficient, sustainable and profitable we need to revolutionise the way we feed our animals and our world. Join us in March as we share new technologies and ideas that will pave the way for the future of the agricultural industry,” said Pat Charlton, vice president Europe, Alltech.

Farmers Rice Milling Company Inc. announced a $13.4 million expansion and modernisation of its rice mill in eastern Calcasieu Parish, Louisiana, USA.
The 55,000-square-foot expansion of the mill’s clean rice packaging and distribution facility will allow the company to increase processing speed and volume.

The Federal Government in Nigeria is constructing silos throughout the country as part of a wider drive to improve the agricultural chain. The silos, some of which are due for completion in April 2013, will help boost grain reserves, price stability and food security.
During a tour of ten silos being built in Igbariam, Anambra State, Labaran Maku, Minister of Information said, “The purpose of grain reserve is for the nation’s food security. The nation can come under disaster, can come under drought. They can come in different ways, it could be war in some instances leading to food insecurity.”
