Tune In To The Alltech Symposium On RURAL TV And The Alltech Ag Network
Monday, May 21st, 2012
With just a few days until the Alltech 28th Annual International Symposium kicks off in Lexingon, Kentucky on May 20, excitement is growing among delegates worldwide who will be attending the event. They will have the opportunity to listen to world-renowned speakers and hear major announcements about what's in store for the future of animal nutrition. And while an anticipated 3,000 delegates will attend the Symposium this year, thanks to coverage by RURAL TV and the Alltech Ag Network, many more will have an opportunity to experience the event from the comfort of their own homes, offices, or even mobile devices.
RURAL TV will be on hand throughout Symposium, providing regular coverage, interviews and highlights along with portions of the Monday, May 21 Opening Plenary Session and the Tuesday afternoon SMART Debate.
Viewers can tune in to watch RURAL TV on DISH Network channel 232, which will feature numerous Alltech Symposium reports in the daily broadcasts throughout the week for both Market Day Report (9 a.m. - 2 p.m., EDT) and the RURAL EVENING NEWS (7:30 p.m. and 11:30 p.m., EDT). In addition, extensive coverage of various sessions in their entirety will be aired in prime time following the RURAL EVENING NEWS on both RURAL TV and RFD-TV for several weeks following the Alltech Symposium.

Launched on February 15, 2012 by the creators of RFD-TV, RURAL TV is the world's first television network devoted to the business of agriculture. Market Day Report is a five-hour daily broadcast of news, weather, and commodity markets updated each half hour. News bureaus in Washington, DC, Chicago, São Paulo, and Buenos Aires provide coverage for these major influences of international agriculture, along with affiliations with every major commodity organization throughout North America.
RURAL TV's new mobile satellite/production truck will uplink all of the Alltech Symposium coverage back to the Nashville based RFD-TV/RURAL TV studios, and will employ three separate production crews interviewing many of the more than 150 speakers at the Alltech Symposium. Extensive carriage of major rural/equine/agricultural events and conventions occupy afternoon/evening programming, along with an expansion of video livestock auctions which are carried "live" on the channel.
