This forum for pig farmers will focus on
breeding programmes, piggery construction and modernisation, genetics-based
improvements in meat quality, ways of optimising feed rations and improving feed
and management systems.
Amongst other events, a podium discussion is scheduled to be held with pig
breeding associations from Russia, England and Denmark on the theme of
"'Successful pig breeding in Russia - Opportunities afforded by international
partnerships". Another podium discussion on the agenda will look at the topic of
"Successful feeding strategies for efficient pig fattening". Leading suppliers
of machinery and equipment for pig feeding systems will give their views on
efficient pig feeding.
The events at AgroFarm 2008 are free of charge. However, prior registration
is requested for reasons of organisation.
