International ruminant topics at EuroTier

This year's EuroTier has the largest and most comprehensive international dairy and cattle sector ever presenting a full range of the latest in equipment, feed and feeding systems, milking and housing solutions, animal health and management services presented in halls 27 und 13.

But visitors from all over the world have much more than the products and solutions to study: they can also attend forums and subsequent discussions covering almost every aspect of dairying and cattle husbandry with leading international experts as well as other farmers. And for the first time selected forum topics are translated into English at the venue in Hall 27 stand M39 every day during EuroTier from 14.00 to 16.00 h.
