Alltech – Worldwide search to find the next extraordinary minds in science

The International Milling Directory‘s member Alltech will gather thousands of research papers from brilliant young thinkers around the world throughout 2013 to select the next winners of the Alltech Young Scientist Awards.

Registration has opened for undergraduate and graduate students interested in submitting experimental research or scientific review papers for the 2013-2014 competition. Regional winners will receive cash prizes, and eight finalists will be invited to compete for top honours during Alltech’s 30th International Symposium in 2014. The winning graduate and undergraduate students will receive a $10,000 scholarship and a $5,000 scholarship respectively.

Scientific papers submitted may cover topics including veterinary science, animal nutrition, feed technology, sustainability, agricultural management, marketing, environmental science and economics. Papers will be judged by a panel of industry professionals. Registration and paper submission is available online and will close Dec. 31, 2013.

“For Alltech, what could be more important that rewarding young people who are driven by science?” said Dr. Pearse Lyons, president and founder of Alltech. “Every year, more and more students send us their research with hopes of standing out in a crowd of candidates representing countries from around the world. Alltech is proud to provide an avenue for future leaders in diverse fields of science to compete at the highest level.”

Regional winners for the 2012-2013 competition will be announced in March. The 2012-2013 regional finalists will travel to Lexington, Kentucky, USA to compete in the final during the 29th International Symposium, May 19-22, 2013.

“The students who are successful in this wide-reaching competition will address the world’s impending agricultural puzzles with solutions founded on science,” said Dr. Inge Russell, director of the Alltech Young Scientist Competition. “Our Young Scientists are in a class above the rest – their research sheds light on how science steers our world to a better future.”

Alltech received nearly 8,000 registrations for the international competition in 2012, with the goal of increasing registrants by 50 percent in 2013. For more information about the Alltech Young Scientist Awards, visit www.alltech.com/education/alltech-young-scientist/about.

New accessory for Perten’s NIR analyser

Transflectance cup for Perten’s DA 7250 NIR spectrometer

Need an easy and accurate chemical analysis for juices, vegetable oils or other liquids? International Milling Directory (IMD) partner Perten Instruments has developed a new accessory enabling exactly that.

Perten’s DA 7250 near-infrared spectroscopy (NIR) analyser was specifically designed for use in food and agriculture, discovering the chemical compositions of powders, pellets, liquids, pastes and slurries. Perten’s new Transflectance Cup is designed to minimise the need to handle liquid samples or clean the equipment between uses, and its gold-coated surface improves the quality of spectral transmission from the sample to its sensors.

Perten Instruments has been providing tools for chemical analysis and quality control since 1962. It is an active partner of the global agricultural industry, and, like IMD publisher Perendale Publishers, it will be exhibiting at the Grain Elevator and Processing Society (GEAPS) conference in Louisville, Kentucky on 23-26 February. The International Milling Directory team invites you to stop by and say hello to both stands.

On 12th-13th June 26,000 visitors and 490 exhibitors will descend on Boothby Graffoe, near Lincoln, for business-to-business (b2b) opportunities, crop plots and live demonstrations, including ones in the natural habitat of the Syngenta Sprays and Sprayers Arena. With over 64 hectares of stands, visitors are sure to get a comprehensive rundown of the arable industry.

Hot topics on this year’s agenda include recovering from the awful weather hitting the UK in the last few months, driving business efficiencies and adapting to the challenges of Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) reform.

Charles Blessley, Case IH‘s UK and Ireland marketing manager, expects it to be a good exhibition for machinery manufacturers.

“Cereals attracts progressive large-scale farmers and operators, so it provides the ideal venue to showcase our range of technically advanced machinery. Since last year’s event we have introduced a number of exciting new products which will be on display at Cereals 2013.”

Marketing manager at New Holland, Richard Spencer, believes Cereals 2013 is an “ideal platform” to discuss business with customers.

“The event attracts the key decision-makers in the arable sector. Cereals offers a great opportunity for visitors to talk through the options, and our technical staff look forward to showing what we can offer.”

This new video of Export Manager, Wesley Merkx was posted recently to Engormix’s Animal Feed News:-

The 2013 International Production & Processing Expo is over for another year. Officialy the last post of the event was yesterday but we wanted to surprise you with another one summing up this important event and also on how the many copies of The International Milling Directory that were taken to the show to be distributed to leading companies and organisation, and about the banner on the Perendale stand extolling the benefits of the IMD in its main digital form. This form is in IMD 24/7 on the PPLAPP (access the IMD web app by clicking on the first icon in the top-left hand corner called

‘Directory’). The app is completely free, just use your touchscreen device and save it as an app to your  device’s menu.

Overall, official press releases from IPPE today describe that it exceeded its expectations with more than 25,000 poultry, meat and feed industry leader attendees from all over the world. In addition, the show had 1,189 exhibitors with more than 430,000 net square feet of exhibit space. Final numbers will be released after the registration database has been audited for duplications. Sponsored by U.S. Poultry & Egg Association, American Feed Industry Association, and the American Meat Institute, IPPE is the world’s largest annual poultry, meat, and feed industry event of its kind.

“We are extremely pleased with the number of exhibitors and attendees on the exhibit floor for IPPE. We have had a great turn-out this year, and the energy and excitement on the floor has been apparent all week,” remarked the three trade associations.

The central attraction was the large exhibit floor. Exhibitors presented the latest innovations in equipment, supplies, and services utilised by industry firms in the production and processing of poultry, eggs, feed products, and meat. Many companies use the annual event to highlight their new products. All phases of the poultry, feed, and meat industry were represented, from live production and process events at IPPE.

An expanded education program complemented the exhibits by keeping industry management informed on the latest issues. This year’s educational line-up featured 15 associated conferences at the event, ranging from an antibiotic conference on current issues for the poultry and egg industry to an international feed education program to international regulatory topics for meat.

The College Student Career Program attracted more than 400 students from 26 universities throughout the United States, while the new International Student Career Program brought in 13 students from four countries. The graduating students interviewed for jobs and internships with 93 human resource representatives from 28 industry and allied firms. They were also able to visit the exhibit floor to see the most current technology used in today’s poultry industry.

Other featured events included a Tech XChange programme, the International Poultry Scientific Forum, Meat Me in @LANTA activities, publisher-sponsored conference programmes, and the Pet Food Conference, all of which made the 2013 IPPE the premiere annual feed and protein event of the western hemisphere.

The International Milling Directory now looks ahead to the next relevant event, GEAPS Exchange 2013 which coincidentally is also in the US. It will take place from Sunday 24th to Tuesday 26th February.
