    The number of exhibitors is slightly lower than in 2012 but this is due to the absence of a World Poultry Show. Positive is the addition of many new international exhibitors – so the show even went more international. So what was there to be found for the visitors?

    The day was kicked off by Reinhard Grandke, CEO of the German Agricultural Society (DLG). In a press conference he pointed out that although due to the absence of the World Poultry Show the total number of exhibitors (2,360) is lower than in 2012, but a higher number of international exhibitors (1,147) partly made up for that.

    Why? One of the speakers was Claes Erlang, one of the first pig farmers who achieved 40 piglets per sow per year.

    His presentation was followed by Søren Møller from the Danish Pig Research Centre, he explained how to reach 40 piglets per sow per year – and what kind of nutrition, health approach and management would be needed to achieve this with as few antibiotics as possible.

    The EuroTier evening – traditionally on the event’s first night – was kicked off by Carl Albrecht Bartmer, president of the German Agricultural Society (DLG). He launched a plea to better inform consumers why agriculture is as it is. Too long, he felt, the gap between public and agriculture had been allowed to grow.

    Germany’s minister of agriculture Christian Schmidt then stated that Germany’s agriculture cannot survive without ‘abroad’ – it is dependent on exports.
