Alltech launches Hope After Harvey, sends team to rope cattle

Published:

Global animal health leader Alltech believes the Lone Star State should not stand alone in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey’s deluge. To deliver relief specifically to Texas’ farm and ranch community, Alltech is launching Hope After Harvey.

Alltech is donating $20,000 to kick off the relief fund and will then match all donations made to its 501(c)(3) nonprofit, the Alltech ACE Foundation. Additionally, the Alltech family has committed to donating $100,000 in value of animal feed and crop products.

With countless reports of thousands of head of cattle in America’s “cattle country” that could not be rescued before Harvey hit, a team of employees is preparing to deploy to Texas this week to help rope cattle. Additional employee teams are being organized for trips in the months ahead to support farmers and ranchers wherever they need extra hands, whether in installing new fencing, rebuilding barns, restoring fields, or herding animals.

“Harvey hit home for many of our customers and employees in Texas, and, therefore, Harvey has hit ‘home’ for the Alltech family globally,” said Dr. Pearse Lyons, president and founder of Alltech. “Our Lone Star friends will not stand alone; they will have our support every step of the rebuild.”
