3D models to measure body condition in cows, robots and data in the poultry chain, tools to increase yields in arable farming and smarter ways to raise pigs. You can hear all about it in our Proagrica Future Farming theatre.

The theatre is organised during the upcoming VIV Europe and Global Forum for Innovations in Agriculture (GFIA), in Utrecht, the Netherlands. In this theatre, 4 seminars will be organised (pigs, poultry, dairy and arable farming) by Proagrica, the publisher of All About Feed, Pig Progress, Poultry World, Dairy Global and Future Farming.
