INTERNATIONAL TECHNICAL PROGRAMME

EuroTier is the showcase for the international animal farming industry and a platform for the future of livestock management. Benefit from the know-how of international industry experts and discuss current topics, trends and strategies with experts from the DLG network.

The EuroTier technical programme will start as early as summer 2022 on the DLG digital platform with expert talks, live events and news for animal farming professionals. From November 15 to 18, 2022, we will be presenting a top-class international technical programme live from the world's leading trade fair in Hanover - on the exhibition grounds and on our digital platform.

You can already find the latest information for pet owners on our digital platform. Registration is free.

PARTNERS OF THE TECHNICAL PROGRAMME

Production and value chains as well as (societal, environmental) demands on livestock farming are changing. Increasingly in Germany / Europe, but also worldwide. It is equally important for farm managers and companies in the agribusiness to actively shape the future. This is where EuroTier comes in and offers innovations and solutions as an international platform.

Adaptation to future conditions by transforming processes:

  • Housing & feeding technology → animal-friendly and climate-neutral
  • Feed & feeding → needs-based and resource-conserving
  • Animal breeding & health → robust and efficient
  • Purchasing & marketing → sustainable and transparent
  • Management & Farming → efficient and socially balanced

CATTLE AND DAIRY PRODUCTION

From a global perspective, the dairy market is expanding. Annual growth of 3.75% of global sales volume is expected until 2025. In the exporting nations of dairy products in particular, the trend is towards process optimization through automation and digitization. In Europe, the focus is on animal welfare, sustainability, climate protection and transparency in the process chain. A global trend towards greater efficiency, animal health and the associated higher product quality can be observed. The exhibition and specialist program offers trade fair visitors the opportunity to find out more about current topics and expand their international network.

PIG

Worldwide pork production is increasing again significantly. The highest growth rates are expected in Asia. Animal health, biosecurity and efficient production systems are issues that concern pig farming around the world. In addition, animal welfare, sustainability and emission reduction are particularly important in Europe. Forms of cross-value chain production are of interest to producers and marketers in terms of transparent production. Whether breeding, feeding, keeping or transport - EuroTier provides information on current developments. Numerous specialist events and events offer the possibility of global networking.

POULTRY

The demand for poultry meat is increasing worldwide. In 2020, poultry took the lead in meat production worldwide. The production of eggs is also increasing continuously around the world. Biosafety, animal health and sustainability of production are issues that concern the poultry industry worldwide. In the European producing countries, the focus is on animal welfare issues and the need to reduce the use of antibiotics and emissions from poultry houses. As the leading trade fair, EuroTier offers information on all aspects of poultry farming. Find out about innovations and trends in keeping, breeding, feeding and marketing.

AQUACULTURE

The controlled production of aquatic organisms is internationally recognized as the branch of the food industry with the highest growth rates. Aquaculture includes both fish and mussels, crustaceans and aquatic plants that are produced in fresh water or salt water. According to the FAO (2020), 114 million t of aquaculture products were harvested in 2018 - and the trend is rising. The diversity of this agricultural area explains the high demand for specialist information. After all, aquaculture also has to face global issues such as sustainability, animal welfare, health and climate protection. The EuroTier is a trend barometer and provides information about innovations in housing, feeding and ventilation technology.

SHEEP AND GOAT

Sheep play a major role in landscape maintenance. In addition, they provide wool, milk and meat. Not only is cheese made from the milk of the ewes, sheep milk is also used in the manufacture of cosmetics. Automation and housing systems with low personnel costs hardly exist. This is a challenge for the sheep and goat farmers, but also a guarantee for high social acceptance. EuroTier offers professional sheep and goat farmers as well as hobby shepherds a platform to exchange information about current developments in breeding, keeping and feeding.

HORSE

For many farmers in Europe, pension horse keeping is developing into a branch of the business that is to be taken up with a high development potential. Throughout the EU, the annual turnover in the equestrian sector is estimated at 100 billion euros, with equestrian sport being the most important. The planned establishment of the EU Animal Welfare Reference Center for ruminants and horses underlines the growing relevance of animal health and animal welfare for horses too: species-appropriate keeping, needs-based feeding, health, exercise and transport - EuroTier offers professional horse owners a platform for information and exchange.

FEEDING

Feed recipes are constantly being adapted and new feeds and feeding processes established, for example to increase animal welfare or to reduce nutrient overhangs in order to enable environmentally friendly use. In addition, animal feed plays an important role in securing the nutrition of a growing world population. In the future, the importance of those who are not in direct food competition with humans, i.e. biomass not directly edible by humans, will continue to gain in importance. At EuroTier, leading companies from the national and international feed industry will show how these demands can be met using innovative feed, processes and recipes.

DIGITALISATION

Agriculture faces major challenges in view of the increasing demand from a growing world population. As the largest land user, the sector has a great responsibility for the conservation of important environmental assets such as soil, water, climate and biodiversity. Digital technologies offer optimized processes and higher product efficiency along the entire value chain. This creates continuously high product quality, more sustainability and more flexible work organization. Competitive advantages that also drive agriculture. EuroTier shows what the digital transformation of animal husbandry will look like.

FURTHER TOPICS OF THE TECHNICAL PROGRAMME

DIRECT MARKETING

Products from their own region with traceable origins and freshness are important reasons for many people to buy agricultural products “directly from the farmer”. The on-farm processing and direct sales are therefore becoming attractive to more and more agricultural companies.
In Germany alone, around 30,000 farmers are currently practicing direct marketing, with varying degrees of intensity and professionalism - right through to perfectly organized farm shops. And the trend continues to rise.
At EuroTier 2022, the DLG will provide information about technical solutions, products and services as well as current marketing strategies.

ALTERNATIVE PROTEIN SOURCES

It is estimated that by 2050 an additional 265 million tons of protein will be needed to meet the needs of the growing world population. Alternative proteins from algae and insects can significantly improve protein supply. The EuroTier specialist program takes on this future topic, provides a thematic overview and discusses opportunities.

DLG AGRIFUTURELAB: Meeting point of the start-up scene

With the DLG AgrifutureLab, EuroTier offers young companies and start-ups that want to provide answers to future questions in agriculture with new ideas, attractive opportunities to present their visions and products to the international agricultural sector.

CAMPUS & CAREER: Information and consultation

In the “Campus & Career” exhibition area, the DLG and its partners present a comprehensive information and advice program on all aspects of professional careers. In the “Career” area, visitors can make contact with companies, obtain information from personnel consultancies and find out more about training and further education opportunities. In the "Campus" area, technical colleges and universities as well as research institutes present current research projects.
