Europe’s largest animal production event will take place from November 15-18, 2016, at Hanover, Germany
FRANKFURT/MAIN, Germany, January 14, 2016 – Attendees to this year’s International Production & Processing Expo (IPPE), taking place at Atlanta, Georgia, from January 26 to 28, will have the opportunity to find out more about EuroTier, Europe’s leading trade fair, Hanover, Germany. EuroTier 2016 is presented at IPPE booth #A418.
Featuring equipment and services for all livestock sectors, including cattle, dairy, pigs, poultry, sheep and aquaculture, EuroTier 2016 offers livestock professionals not only a look at current products and industry trends, but also future technological solutions that could be applied in North and South America in the future.
“With the World Poultry Show this year taking place at EuroTier, this complete display of innovations in Hanover, Germany, is particularly relevant for poultry producers in America such as the attendees at IPPE,” says the event’s project manager, Dr. Karl Schlösser of the German Agricultural Society (DLG).
In 2014, EuroTier attracted a record 156,500 attendees, 30,000 of whom came from outside Germany, including 2,400 from the Americas). They were able to see products and solutions displayed by 2,368 exhibitors – 1,145 of which were also based outside the host nation.
Every aspect of livestock production is covered
The subject areas covered at the event include: breeding stock, breeding programs and reproduction technology; feed production and storage; animal housing including controlled-environment technology; machinery and equipment for animal husbandry and feeding; milking equipment and milk storage systems; machinery and equipment for storing and handling solid and liquid manure; food processing equipment; and advisory, management and consultancy services.
EuroTier 2016 will also feature EnergyDecentral. Located in separate exhibition halls at the Hanover Exhibition Grounds, this will showcase a broad range of technological developments in the areas of bioenergy, renewable energy and the technology and concepts around decentralized energy. This section offers good synergy with the agricultural livestock technologies featured at the exhibition.
Furthermore, EuroTier will hosts about 100 in-depth forums on specialist issues such as the mapping of soybean meal and rapeseed meal qualities. Past topics include: Securing drinking water quality; Resource-conserving and nutritionally beneficial feed – soy protein concentrate; Focus on antibiotic use – treading new ground with essential oils; and Salmonella reduction in broilers and layer hens.
EuroTier exhibitors set industry trends
Innovations seen and trends set at EuroTier in the past that have since become important features of the professional poultry sector include: Objective inspection and optimal setting of husbandry parameters in line with animal welfare; measures to reduce the use of antibiotics; and the optimization of dung removal systems used in modern keeping systems such as those involving small groups of birds and aviaries.
In addition, new processes in poultry processing that increase product safety and considerably reduce the use of natural resources, thus also contributing to environmental protection, have been introduced to producers for the first time at Hanover. Specific innovations have also been seen in relation to the use of scalding tanks in poultry slaughtering, and novel lighting systems in poultry housing that promote animal welfare requirements.
