Technical Programme Cattle

In the Cattle Forum there will be presentations each day on topical issues concerning cattle breeding and keeping. In addition to a number of presentations on animal health, animal welfare, biosafety, feeding, management and economics, EuroTier visitors will also have the opportunity to learn about the professional work of the DLG Committees.  

The Special “Digital Animal Farming” will examine the digitization of production processes in animal housing facilities and on the farm. Whether in production supervision, animal health and animal welfare, the farm’s nutrient balance or transparency for customers – the use of sensors and targeted data management make it possible to take into account the needs of the animals, the environment, the farmers and consumers – all on an equal footing. Management can be simplified and faults can be avoided by networking systems and technologies on the farm. In Hall 26, EuroTier exhibitors will present exhibits and explanations regarding animal keeping in the digital age in a Special Show and provide visitors with more in-depth information via short lecture events and discussion panels.


Top genetics of German and international dairy and beef breeds will be on show live on the rotating stage in Hall 11 at the Hanover Fairgrounds on all four days of EuroTier.
