Speakers and panelists will address current topics for pig and poultry farmers. Animal welfare, conservation of resources and future-oriented husbandry systems in changing climatic conditions are particularly in focus this year. Farms in export-oriented countries are concerned with the question of specialisation or diversification. In addition, innovative approaches to dealing with African swine fever (ASF) and avian influenza (AI) must be found.
Experts comment on current issues in milk production and cattle management. Especially in the nations exporting dairy products, the trend is towards process optimisation through automation and digitalisation. In Europe, the focus is on animal welfare, sustainability, climate protection and transparency in the process chain. There is a global trend towards greater efficiency, animal health and associated higher product quality.
