Colleagues, friends and dignitaries recently gathered in Guelph at Alltech’s Canadian headquarters to celebrate the global animal nutrition company’s 30th anniversary operating in Canada.

Founded in 1988 by Dr. Pearse Lyons, Alltech Canada has offices and representatives strategically located across the country. In 2016, Alltech acquired Masterfeeds and added a strong network of farm-focused dealers to accommodate and service farmers and ranchers nationwide.

“Canada is one of the largest agricultural producers and exporters in the world,” said Stuart McGregor, general manager of Alltech Canada. “We are proud to celebrate 30 years in Canada and look forward to many more supporting our farm and ranch customers across the country.”

Coinciding with the Alltech Canada 30th anniversary celebration, the World Trade Center Kentucky and Kentucky Agriculture Commissioner Ryan Quarles visited the Guelph area on an agriculture and agribusiness-focused trade mission. Canada is Kentucky’s top agriculture and agri-food export market, and in 2016, Kentucky’s agriculture and related industries exported US$230 million to Canada.

“Kentucky agriculture needs international trade, but more importantly, the rest of the world needs Kentucky agriculture,” Quarles says. “The goal of this agriculture-focused trade mission is to generate export opportunities by connecting our farm community to new international markets.”

While in Canada, the trade mission delegates visited a grain farm, toured the University of Guelph Livestock Research and Innovation Centre, participated in roundtable discussions and attended an Agriculture and Agribusiness Symposium, business-to-business meetings and business networking receptions. The mission was sponsored by Kentucky Farm Bureau, Masterfeeds/Alltech, the Kentucky Distillers’ Association and the Kentucky Thoroughbred Association.
