EuroTier 2008 expects to set record
A substantial increase in Brazilian poultry and livestock experts are expected
at this year's EuroTier, the international DLG Exhibition for animal husbandry
and management, held 11-14 November 2008 in Hanover, Germany.
Following a high level of interest in the EuroTier preview at the recent
AveSui, Brazil's top pig and poultry event, EuroTier organiser DLG expects
exhibitor numbers of 1,800 to be up by 20% on the last show in 2006. Attendance
figures could also break records with an expected specialist visitor total of
over 120,000 on 170,000 sqm hall space.
Brazilian farmers - high
level of interest
"The interest in EuroTier from Brazilian farmers
and companies is higher than ever. Brazil's economy is buoyant and this means
the country's animal production sector is set to benefit from the wide range of
technical solutions available at EuroTier," said DLG Marketing Manager, South
America and Western Europe, Sabine Behre. "Brazilian farmers, like those
everywhere else, are also seeking ways to reduce costs and increase efficiency
against a background of higher feedstuff prices. This challenge coupled with the
problems of climate change and its impact on the sector, gives rise to a whole
range of new ideas."
Among attractive new climate protection and input
saving ideas presented at EuroTier this year will be more efficient energy
production from by-product manure: a particular benefit aiding cheaper air
conditioning for animal housing in hot climes. Latest presentations from the
world's leading breeding companies and information on herd and flock management,
veterinary and feed solutions are also among the expected
World Poultry Show
With every aspect of
husbandry covered in the pig and cattle sectors, the poultry industry also
features the regular "World Poultry Show" with special events and forums
tackling global questions in this sector.
Another established world-class feature of the Hanover show
is "BioEnergy Europe", dedicated to agriculture's role in climate-friendly
natural energy production across the world. This event had a successful premier
at EuroTier two years ago with 250 exhibitors over 11,000 square metres net
space (120.000 sq.feet) establishing it right away as one of the biggest shows
of its kind in the world. DLG reports that exhibitor interest is even greater
for this year's BioEnergy Europe.
