A substantial increase in Brazilian poultry and livestock experts is
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,â€ said DLG Marketing Manager, South America and Western
Europe, Sabine Behre. â€œBrazilian 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.â€
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 highlights.
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 â€œBioEnergy
Europeâ€, 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
