LEXINGTON, Ky. — Curiosity has put men on the moon, sequenced the human genome and has now led us to precision nutrition, epigenetics and a nutritional revolution. Are we staying curious?

During this year’s 28th annual North American Lecture Tour, Alltech will be challenging attendees to Stay Curious.

The 23-stop tour, Feb. 12-March 1, will encourage attendees to stretch beyond conventional practices and explore how the latest technological developments can move the agriculture industry forward today.

“As an agricultural industry, we are faced with increases in corn and soy prices and a rising global population to feed, all while trying to find solutions to minimize pollution and maximize traceability. Instead of waiting for someone else to solve our problems, we need to embrace these global challenges together,” said Pearse Lyons, president and founder of Alltech. “To be successful, you must adapt, have curiosity and embrace change.”

Among the stops on the tour are Burlington, Vt., 9 a.m. Feb. 18, Sheraton Burlington; Syracuse, N.Y., 9 a.m. Feb. 19, Doubletree Hotel; Lancaster, Pa., 2 p.m. Feb. 20, The Cork Factory Hotel; and Columbus, Ohio, 9 a.m. Feb. 21, Crowne Plaza.
