We would be delighted if you could join us for the ‘2019 joint Alltech / ARK Anaerobic Digestion Optimisation Workshop’ on the 16th of April 2019.
This is a chance to learn more about optimising your AD plant by increasing silage quality with globally recognised independent silage consultant Dr Dave Davies and we are also pleased to have Jim Huntington from Harper Adams University and Ricky Maylin of ONM Energy presenting.
We will then cover making the most of your valuable silage in the plant by working with ARK, Alltech and the DIGEST P3 Enzyme (info attached) including presentations and feedback from trials in the UK.
DATE: - Tuesday 16th April 2019
VENUE: - Alltech House, Ryhall Road, Stamford, PE9 1TZ
Workshop Programme: -
09.30am - Arrive / Registration / Coffee
10.00am – Welcome – Bob Kendal, Alltech

10.20am – Silage making –Dr Dave Davies, Independent nutritionist / silage advisor
We are delighted to be joined by Dr Dave Davies, Dave is the UK’s leading independent silage consultant and an expert in the making and management of silage.
With a 20-year career in the industry Dr Davies has produced and worked on many trials and research projects focusing on improving silage making in the dairy sector. These findings transfer well to the UK AD sector where, as we know, silage clamp losses have a massive impact on the financial success of a plant.
11.10am – The process of anaerobic digestion – Dr Jim Huntington, Harper Adams University
Jim has been working with AD plants and the biology behind them for several years including pilot studies with Alltech and the DIGEST P3 Enzyme showing a 15% increase in methane production.
12.00am – Lunch and opportunity to meet the speakers and delegates and do a bit of networking.
Lunch will be provided on the day and there will be a chance to see the new Alltech offices and the ‘Kentucky bar’ a wood panelled Kentucky style bar on site (not to be missed).

Prior to founding ONM, Ricky managed plants for Material Change and Tamar Energy.
13.15pm – DIGEST P3 - Niall Brennan, Anaerobic Digestions Technical Project Manager, Alltech – a roundup of results using DIGEST P3
Niall is the lead at Alltech on the DIGEST P3 enzyme and has been running trials with plants across Europe. Niall will run through some of the results so far and the feedback from plants using DIGEST P3.
13.45pm – Questions and close
14.00pm - Depart
Please see more information attached about the DIGEST P3 enzyme and how it can benefit your plant.
On a personal note it is not often we get to bring the AD sector together in such incredible surroundings, the brand new Alltech offices we are meeting in are extremely impressive - reflecting the company’s American roots- for more info google ‘Alltech Stamford’.
Couple this with the excellent speakers we have lined up we hope you will enjoy a day of learning and networking with us.
To help us with the organisation and catering can you please RSVP by 5th April along with any dietary requirements to firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01787 220 560.
We look forward to seeing you on the 16th April.

Welsh Farmers investing in silage storage through the Sustainable Production Grant Scheme should consider ARK sloping walled silage clamps - helping them make better silage, safer with a ready made Environment Agency compliant system.
This is the message from Will Wilson, Business Development Director, ARK Agriculture. ARK Agriculture specialise in the construction of the patented, innovative, sloping wall silage clamp.
‘ARK is unique in the UK as we are the only company that works specifically with silage clamps, so we try really hard to give our customers the best possible advice to improve silage quality and make silage storage safer and compliant,’ says Mr Wilson.
‘When we design silage clamps we start with the goal of making the best silage possible and we consider dozens of variables, many of which have been overlooked in the past, to get the design right. Part of this aim for silage quality is the use of the sloping walled system’.
