Alltech Founder Pearse Lyons

Shelbyville Senator Paul Hornback says Alltech Founder Pearse Lyons contributed to the agriculture industry by thinking outside the box.  Hornback was reflecting on the impact of Lyons, who died Thursday after battling a lung condition following heart surgery.

Hornback, a lifelong farmer, says animal feed advances at Alltech led to an expansion of Kentucky’s livestock industry.
