March 8, 2018

In a tremendous loss for the ag community, Alltech President and Founder Dr. Pearse Lyons has passed away. Lyons was a visionary entrepreneur who transformed the ag industry with many innovations. Lyons died on Thursday, March 8, due to an acute lung condition that developed during his recovery from heart surgery. He was 73.

Alric Blake, CEO and Treasurer of Alltech, had this to say: “Dr. Lyons was a visionary entrepreneur who transformed the agriculture industry beginning with his innovative application of yeast technology in animal nutrition. From farm to field, from market to family dinner table, our world is immeasurably better because he was a man who never saw problems, only a challenge that had not yet been solved.”

Our thoughts and prayers are with all of Alltech, along with Dr. Lyons’ family and friends, in the wake of his passing.
