Due to increasing demand, global animal health company Alltech has begun drawing up plans for a new state-of-the-art sales office, warehouse and production facility just east of Clovis, New Mexico.

The 240-acre site was previously home to an ethanol plant. The new Alltech facility will support local sales in New Mexico and West Texas and offer a local distribution site for its growing customer base. Alltech New Mexico will also produce its signature product Yea-Sacc®1026  Farm Pak 2X, a live yeast culture feed additive, at the facility.

“We are excited about the opportunity to have a local facility to serve the dairy industry of Eastern New Mexico and West Texas,” said Aaron DeHaan, Alltech New Mexico Territory Sales Manager. New Mexico is home to 360,000 dairy cows and 45 percent of the dairy cows reside in Curry and Roosevelt counties. Across the state line, the Panhandle of Texas holds approximately 150,000 cows.

“As a global animal health company, we seek out places that are centers for agricultural productivity,” said Alltech President Dr. Pearse Lyons. “Now Alltech will be able to better service the Southwest in a research, production, distribution, and sales capacity.”

The design phase should be completed by this summer and construction on the facility, located north of Highway 60, will begin in the fall.
