Alltech appoints technical manager for Asia-Pacific

Global animal health and nutrition company, Alltech has appointed Dr Tugrul Durali as Asia-Pacific technical manager for Alltech’s Mycotoxin Management Team. Based in Sydney, Durali will provide technical support to the company’s local and regional accounts, focusing on Alltech’s On-Farm program.

Durali started his professional career as an intern in 2001 at one of the biggest egg and poultry meat producers in Turkey focusing on aflatoxicosis in layer hens, then joining the Turkish Armed Force where he graduated as a veterinarian lieutenant from the Army Veterinarian College. After returning to civil life, Durali received training on turkey breeder health, management and artificial insemination from a leading Israeli company specialising in the poultry breeder field in the Middle East.

Durali later worked as a poultry veterinarian at another company, focusing on gut health and mycotoxicosis on broiler and breeder productions, and then moved to Australia to join a leading poultry producer as a technical services manager. His interests in improvement of poultry welfare with nutrition and particularly antibiotic free production led him to establish research trials, and he played a major role in the establishment of the company’s free range broiler production.

Alltech’s Mycotoxin Management program was launched in early 2012 in order to help producers in their control of mycotoxins through a combination of mycotoxin management programs and technologies.
