    The number of exhibitors is slightly lower than in 2012 but this is due to the absence of a World Poultry Show. Positive is the addition of many new international exhibitors – so the show even went more international.

    So what was there to be found for the visitors?

    The day was kicked off by Reinhard Grandke, CEO of the German Agricultural Society (DLG). In a press conference he pointed out that although due to the absence of the World Poultry Show the total number of exhibitors (2,360) is lower than in 2012, but a higher number of international exhibitors (1,147) partly made up for that.

    Three golden medals have been awarded in the pig industry. From the Netherlands, Schippers received a gold medal for its HyCare concept. Core is to keep piglets in a container during lactation and if desired weaning – after which these containers can be completely disinfected instead of having to disinfect the pig house. The containers can be moved throughout a specially designed pig house.

    Big Dutchman received a golden medal for its novel Pulsed Electric Field (PEF) system – a system for cell breakdown of the whole maize plant for feeding to pigs in a liquid form.

    The third pig-related gold medal at EuroTier is for German livestock equipment company Meier-Brakenberg, who launched ‘Porky’s Pick Up’, a cart which allows the hands free removal of larger finisher carcasses to up to 130 kg. The carcasses are loaded onto the cart with these sharp edges.

    The ‘Swine Mobile’ is an attempt to bring the background of pork production back to the consumers, by informing them about how their meat is produced, to achieve more acceptance in an increasingly critical and sometimes under-informed market.

    His presentation was followed by Søren Møller from the Danish Pig Research Centre, he explained how to reach 40 piglets per sow per year – and what kind of nutrition, health approach and management would be needed to achieve this with as few antibiotics as possible.

    The EuroTier evening – traditionally on the event’s first night – was kicked off by Carl Albrecht Bartmer, president of the German Agricultural Society (DLG). He launched a plea to better inform consumers why agriculture is as it is. Too long, he felt, the gap between public and agriculture had been allowed to grow.

    Germany’s minister of agriculture Christian Schmidt then stated that Germany’s agriculture cannot survive without ‘abroad’ – it is dependent on exports.
