Technical Programme Pig

The Pig Forum will again be offering an extremely interesting programme on all four days with technical subjects from the fields of pig farming and pigmeat production. Large amounts of valuable knowledge about new keeping methods and feeding strategies as well as innovative management tools will be presented.  

The Forum is also a central platform on which topical issues for practical farmers covered by DLG’s professional work are presented. Practical farmers will report on their experience of new keeping systems to improve animal health, animal welfare or the farm’s nutrient balance. 

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.
