NUTRIFAIR 2012: Denmark

The seaside city of Fredericia, Denmark, saw the kickoff this week of the first NutriFair, a trade show only directed at livestock producers. The show seems to fill a gap in demand now that the other famous Danish show Agromek has changed its formula to virtually coincide with the major European livestock show EuroTier. The first day was visited well.

Keep updated about the NutriFair show with an update later this week.

  • As it is the first edition of the show, nobody really knew what to expect in advance, although the signs had been positive with an unexpected 150 companies turning out. 2,868 visitors made it to the first day which caused a pleasant buzz on the showgrounds.

  • Even in Denmark, there are still sow farmers that need to convert to group housing for gestating sows and they have less than a year left. By January 2013, all sow breeders in the European Union must keep their dry sows in loose sow housing for most of their gestation phase.

  • The thinking does not stop at gestating sows. Egebjerg International presented a version of its farrowing unit for loose nursing sows. In other words, welfare and moving space can also be increased for lactating sows.
