Following on from previous years successes, Alltech has confirmed its sponsorship of the ‘Dairy Farmer of the Year’ category at the 2015 Farming Life Awards.
“We are delighted yet again, to be a sponsor at this year’s awards,” confirmed Alltech’s Fergal McAdam.
“Events such as these play a key role in raising the profile of the agri-food sector as a whole in Northern Ireland.
“As a company, Alltech is committed to developing innovative nutritional solutions for dairy cattle and livestock, that will have a beneficial impact right along the agri-food production and processing chain.
“Alltech is working closely with producers in dairy and other sectors of local agriculture. In doing so, we are fully aware of the tremendous commitment made by dairy farmers throughout Northern Ireland and the innovation they are showing. This in turn, underpins a milk processing sector, which is a key driver for the economy as a whole.”
