EuroTier 2008 expects to set record

03-06-2008 | |

A substantial increase in Brazilian poultry and livestock experts is expected at this year’s EuroTier, the international DLG Exhibition for animal husbandry and management, held 11–14 November 2008 in Hanover, Germany.

Following a high level of interest in the EuroTier
preview at the recent AveSui, Brazil’s top pig and poultry event, EuroTier
organiser DLG expects exhibitor numbers of 1,800 to be up by 20% on the last
show in 2006. Attendance figures could also break records with an expected
specialist visitor total of over 120,000 on 170,000 sqm hall

Brazilian farmers – high level of
“The interest in EuroTier from Brazilian farmers and
companies is higher than ever. Brazil’s economy is buoyant and this means the
country’s animal production sector is set to benefit from the wide range of
technical solutions available at EuroTier,” said DLG Marketing Manager, South
America and Western Europe, Sabine Behre. “Brazilian farmers, like those
everywhere else, are also seeking ways to reduce costs and increase efficiency
against a background of higher feedstuff prices. This challenge coupled with the
problems of climate change and its impact on the sector, gives rise to a whole
range of new ideas.”

Among attractive new climate protection and input
saving ideas presented at EuroTier this year will be more efficient energy
production from by-product manure: a particular benefit aiding cheaper air
conditioning for animal housing in hot climes. Latest presentations from the
world’s leading breeding companies and information on herd and flock management,
veterinary and feed solutions are also among the expected

World Poultry Show
With every aspect of husbandry
covered in the pig and cattle sectors, the poultry industry also features the
regular “World Poultry Show” with special events and forums tackling global
questions in this sector.

BioEnergy Europe
Another established
world-class feature of the Hanover show is “BioEnergy Europe”, dedicated to
agriculture’s role in climate-friendly natural energy production across the
world. This event had a successful premier at EuroTier two years ago with 250
exhibitors over 11,000 square metres net space (120.000 sq.feet) establishing it
right away as one of the biggest shows of its kind in the world. DLG reports
that exhibitor interest is even greater for this year’s BioEnergy Europe.
