PT. Swadesi Candrasentosa, distributor for Meriden Animal Health in Indonesia, achieved great success at the IndoLivestock exhibition held in Jakarta, 18-20 June 2014.
PT. Swadesi’s promotional initiatives really paid off, attracting both new and existing customers to the stand. PT. Swadesi ran a competition where anyone who placed an order at the show was entered into a prize draw to win that order free of charge. This resulted in a flood of orders for Orego-Stim! Three names were pulled as prize winners and these people will be contacted in due course.

Cereals UK was ye again a great event, and some of the best-known UK companies joined together to exhibit at a new location near Cambridge, UK.
An expected total of 26,000 visitors to over 500 stands made this annual outdoors exhibition a great time for all. In the “Post-Harvest Technologies” sections there were some great displays of machinery, products and services. The International Milling Directory was distributed to many visitors and exhibitors there. Some of the stands we visited were: HGCA, nabim, Bayer CropScience, Chief Industries UK, DanCorn, Guttridge, Cropmech, Bentall Rowlands and Satake.
The new animal feed section at HGCA’ s stand was of great interest to us at the International Milling Directory. There were some great pieces of information at the animal feed section, one advertised fact that 57% of UK wheat goes to animal feed seemed to be a very high number, that was assured to be true!
nabim also were hosted again in the HGCA stand, they were handing out 500 gram bags of flour at their stand. The UK grown and milled strong white bread flour was produced using nabim Group 1 breadmaking wheat varieties and was a great freebie.
MILLING WHEAT CHALLENGE 2014
nabim, supported by HGCA, announced the three farmer finalists for the 2014 Milling Wheat Challenge at the Cereals Event on Wednesday 11th June. Now in its fifth year, the aim of the Challenge is to find the country’s best milling wheat grower.
The 2014 finalists are:
- Robert Chapman, South Lodge Farm, Barnwell, Peterborough, Cambridgeshire
- Rick Davies, Newton Lodge, Clifton Reynes, Buckinghamshire
- Joseph Edwards, Boddington Estates, Cheltenham, Gloucestershire
As in previous years, the standard of the entries has remained very high and the judges had a tough job selecting the finalists.
Each of the finalists farm significant areas with wheat as their main crop. All three are forward-thinking, very technically competent and consistently grow quality crops of bread-making wheats.
The Challenge has become established as a formal recognition by Britain’s flour millers of how the country’s best growers combine attention to detail with end-customer awareness and business acumen to create a win: win for the whole wheat chain.
Judging of the three finalists will take place in June and July when visits will be made to their farms. Detailed discussions will take place with the growers themselves, their crops will be walked and inspections made of any storage facilities.
The judges for 2014 are Martin Savage from nabim, HGCA Head of Regional Development Richard Laverick and Mark Ireland, a Lincolnshire farmer and “Farmers Weekly Arable Farmer of the Year 2009”.
The finalists, together with leaders from the UK wheat supply chain, will be invited to a celebration dinner hosted by nabim at the Ritz Hotel in London where the winning grower will be announced.

CropTech-FeedTech at VIV Europe 2014
The CropTech-FeedTech knowledge programme which has now become internationally renowned will also be one of the highlights at VIV Europe. On Wednesday May 21st, CropTech-FeedTech Conference will take place. The developments in this field are progressing so rapidly and are so vital for the production of animal protein that this theme has attracted massive international interest.
Within the central theme of ‘Sustainable intensification’ the production of animal feeds is essential. The quality of the feed is a spearhead because this has such a massive influence on the quality of the end products for the consumer. The feed component is also a significant factor for the cost price of meat, poultry meat and eggs. The production of efficient, high-quality feed is therefore a main topic at VIV Europe.
The scientific world is discovering to an increasing level how the production chain can be managed by using technology and automation in these chains. It comes down to the ability to switch quickly between various protein-rich raw materials, depending on price and availability on the world market and tracking and tracing.
Focus on animal feed
At VIV Europe experts and exhibitors will be presenting their best knowledge and techniques in the field of feed production. Animal feed is also the theme of the opening congress on Tuesday May 20th. Exhibitors will be presenting all of the latest techniques and animal feed will be examined in depth. This will also cover topics such as ingredients, additives and veterinary medication – the latter also being of major importance since there is a direct relationship between food quality and food safety.
The International Milling Directory is glad to promote a video from The Grain Chain. The Grain Chain programme is a collaboration of the HGCA, Federation of Bakers (FoB) and Flour Advisory Bureau (FAB). It is the successor to the Flour and Grain Education Programme which was launched in 2002. The International Milling Directory always supports training and wishes to promote this further in any small way at all.
