IPPE 2013 Update

Happy new year for 2013 to all members, readers and contributors of the International Milling Directory.

There has been a new press release detailing some finer points of this month’s IPPE convention in Atlanta, Georgia, USA. We are excited and proud to be a media partner and exhibitor at this event from 29-31 January 2013. Do look for us at stand 1700!

International Production & Processing Expo

Exciting times are coming to Atlanta, Georgia, the week of January 28 – February 1, 2013, with the integration of three internationally recognized trade shows joining forces to bring suppliers and buyers together for education, technology exchange and networking encompassing the entire spectrum of farm to table.

The combination of the International Poultry Expo (IPE), International Feed Expo (IFE) and American Meat Institute’s International Meat Expo (IME) will bring in over 25,000 attendees from over 100 countries and over 1,000 exhibitors. The week will feature educational opportunities every day. In addition, the trade show, being held January 29 – 31, is anticipated to feature over 400,000 net square feet of exhibits, placing the show in the top 50 of all trade shows in the United States.

The addition of the American Meat Institute’s (AMI) International Meat Expo will expand the number of processing, further processing and packaging suppliers to the show. Additionally, AMI will be adding several educational programs that week to complement the sessions being offered by the U.S. Poultry & Egg Association and the American Feed Industry Association.

The show provides an excellent opportunity to see the latest developments and technology, get training and updates through the educational programs, and to network and meet people from all over the world to exchange experiences and ideas. This year will feature two networking receptions. On the opening day of the show (Tuesday, January 29), there will be a reception from 4 – 6 p.m. on the floor of the show. On Wednesday, back by popular demand, there be a reception at the Georgia Aquarium, the world’s largest enclosed aquarium.

Introducing: FineTek

FineTek

Another new member has joined The International Milling Directory.

The Taiwan-based manufacturer is a company dedicated to ‘complete instrumentation solutions’. FineTek’s product line includes a varied and wide quantity of digital controllers and meters, pneumatic products, safety instruments,  level switch transmitters for solid and liquid applications. However all impressive this range of categories are, we are interested most in the manufacture of  the level sensor for silo bulk storage. This product is the key selling point for a justifiable place in the International Milling Directory. This alone is all the more impressive considering their research and development arm is an integral part of the company, which sets a strong “backbone” of the company.

International Milling Directory staff and some members are entering a second day of ISRMAX in Delhi, India. Marking events is something we at Milling International like to do for our readers and International Milling Directory members but we always look ahead to future industry events. One event we are excited about is the Soft Commodities Summit taking place in the scenic city of Geneva, Switzerland in February next year.

The volatile and changing market presents new demands, and the need has arisen to get fresh insights into dealing with priorities in the most effective way. With this in mind, the International Research Network (IRN) brings you an even more focused event with fresh content and sessions on 26-27th February 2013 where you can pick up unrivalled advice and insights on how to develop excellence in every part of your organisation; from building efficient strategies to reducing costs and risks across the supply chain and of course engaging your corporate responsibility towards the crucial new challenges of the industry.

Senior level practitioners across the soft commodities industry will be addressing exclusive presentations over the two days. Olam, Cargill, Armajaro, Ameropa, Louis Dreyfus and HSBC are among the numerous companies involved in the forum this year again. Through interactive presentations, case studies and workshops, their senior-level representatives will be looking at the best practices in terms of reducing costs and driving efficiency within the operations. They will demonstrate in real concrete cases the strategies that can be put in place to help the industry embrace effective approaches to challenges such as sustainability, integration of developing countries, keeping up with the logistical and legal aspects, risk management across the supply chain as well as human and resource asset development.

‘Jagdish Parihar, Managing Director, Natural Fibers Division, Olam International Ltd’ will be discussing the long-term future of agricultural commodities and the key challenges.

‘Pamela Kirby Johnson OBE, Director General, GAFTA’ will be discussing Warehousing – Assessing effective measures and practices in quality control, standards and certification challenges.

Financial institutions and commodity finance specialists will also have a look at the implications of the Euro zone crisis on the industry. The summit is a must-attend event for professionals involved in the soft commodities trading industry, whether they deal with rice, cocoa, cotton, sugar, coffee or grains.

It is a critical point to bring the key players in the industry together once again. SCT 2013 has been designed to allow discussions, benchmarking and networking.

It’s Official, EuroTier 2012 was Popular, Productive and Successful

Around 160,000 animal husbandry farmers and experts – 38,000 international visitors – Leading position as the world’s largest exhibition consolidated – BioEnergy Decentral becomes increasingly more international

EuroTier, Hannover

Many of the International Milling Directory‘s members met with Darren, Tuti and Roger from the publication (and to discuss the sister publications International Aquafeed and Grain & Feed Milling Technology). One comment from the event organiser, “With 2,445 exhibitors and around 160,000 visitors, including 38,000 international visitors, EuroTier 2012 has reached new record levels”, announced Dr. Reinhard Grandke, Chief Executive Officer of DLG (Deutsche Landwirtschafts-Gesellschaft – German Agricultural Society), speaking to the press in Hanover at the close of EuroTier on 16 November 2012. With this result EuroTier has impressively demonstrated its great pulling power for animal husbandry farmers and experts from all over the world and further consolidated its leading position as the world’s top event for professional animal husbandry. BioEnergy Decentral at EuroTier has become firmly established as the world forum for decentralized energy supply.

EuroTier

The following preliminary conclusions can be drawn:

  1. The number of exhibitors has increased by 25 percent compared with 2010. Altogether 2,445 direct exhibitors and 41 additionally represented firms from a total of 51 countries presented their goods and services and their innovations. Around half of the exhibitors (1,151) came from outside Germany, representing a 40 percent increase over 2010. This underpins EuroTier’s unique position as the world’s largest exhibition in this field.
  2. EuroTier is the platform for launching new machines, installations and farm inputs on the international markets. The innovations in the areas of animal housing construction, machinery and installations for feeding and husbandry, electronics, instrumentation and control engineering, as well as data management shown here generate new impulses for effectiveness, efficiency, precision and animal welfare.
  3. With around 160,000 visitors from over 100 countries, EuroTier has achieved a new record level. These figures represent an increase of around ten percent by comparison with 2010. EuroTier is the globally most important information forum for professional animal husbandry. The farmers, dealers and investors are making their farms and businesses fit for the future with modern technology and signposting strategies. This underscores the importance of agriculture as a key sector of the 21st century.
  4. EuroTier is more international than ever before. 38,000 farmers, investors and expert visitors came to the Exhibition Grounds in Hanover to gather information. This corresponds to an increase of over 50 percent by comparison with the previous maximum level. The largest contingents of international visitors came from the Netherlands, Austria, Denmark, France, Poland, Spain and the United Kingdom. Nearly 3,000 investors and persons in charge of large-scale farms from Eastern Europe came to Hanover to see what is available on the market. The high numbers of visitors from the Middle and Far East Asia as well as from Central and South America also deserve mention: over 7,000 visitors from these regions were registered. The total visitor numbers from Germany remained constant at around 122,000.
  5. The cattle sector at EuroTier is unique worldwide with its presentations of genetic resources and innovative installations and equipment. These form the basis for the strategies that beef and dairy farmers are adopting to prepare for the phasing out of the milk quota in 2015.
  6. The solutions presented in the pig sector reflected the demands made of future keeping conditions. The motors driving them are the pressures to reduce costs and increase productivity, as well as alignment with increasing legal requirements and demands made by society.
  7. The “World Poultry Show” at EuroTier completely satisfied its goal of being the global forum for the poultry sector. Breeders, producers and processors from all over the world used the comprehensive and highly specialised programme to develop the good prospects in the markets.
  8. A further stand-alone feature of EuroTier is the unique programme addressing feed and animal health. It is only at EuroTier that the supply side in these segments meets the demand side made up of the farmers of all the key productive animal species.
  9. The changing requirements made by society have a substantial influence on the development strategies of the livestock farmers. The Animal Welfare Info Centre at EuroTier offered a platform for discussing the different standpoints of various groups in society regarding modern livestock farming. Visitors to EuroTier made excellent use of this information forum.
  10. The Technical Programme at EuroTier 2012 was very well attended by the visitors. The international events for the dairy and pig farmers and the International Poultry Day immediately preceding EuroTier have become established highlights for practical farmers and related specialists from all over Europe. They attracted around 1,300 international experts. The conferences and forum events and the congress of the Federal Association of Practising Veterinarians (Bundesverband Praktizierender Tierärzte) held overlapping with EuroTier also provided excellent opportunities for exchanging opinions and experience.
  11. The “Young Farmers Day” on Thursday was a great success. Over 5,000 young farmers and students from Germany and abroad attended the various events offered at EuroTier. One highlight of EuroTier 2012 was once again the Young Farmers party with around 2,500 young guests.
  12. BioEnergy Decentral reported a constant number of around 42,000 visitors, despite the current market situation in Germany. The share of international visitors increased by twelve percent compared with 2010, which is attributable above all to the technology leadership in this industry. Accordingly it was possible to expand BioEnergy Decentral as the global forum for decentralized energy supply.
  13. The partnership with VDMA Power Systems and the Association of Local Utilities (VKU) has proved fruitful and contributed substantially to the success of BioEnergy Decentral. 650 exhibitors presented solutions for the entire value chain of decentralized energy supply.
  14. The programme of BioEnergy Decentral was complemented by a comprehensive technical programme that was designed and implemented by DLG in partnership with Bauförderung Landwirtschaft – BFL (an organization devoted to promoting agricultural building construction and optimizing livestock management conditions), the publisher Energie & Management and further partners.

This story was from Engormix .

The next EuroTier including BioEnergy Decentral will be held in Hannover, Germany from 11th to 14th November 2014. We look forward to going again and I hope it is reciprocated by you.

4B boosts Load and Value in New Products

4B has invested in tooling to increase the capacities of their popular STARCO steel elevator buckets; as a result, all 4B’s StarcoSteel copy-1 ow have the same or greater capacities than comparable buckets of their competitors.

The Starco bucket was originally invented by 4B Braime’s French subsidiary, SETEM, in the 1980s and was the first low profile elevator bucket to use centrifugal discharge on a parabolic elevator head to achieve much higher capacities on a given elevator leg. As such, the STARCO bucket has revolutionised the elevator buckets market. The Starco elevator bucket has been engineered to provide perfect fill & discharge for a wide range of products. It operates at wide speed range, up to 4.55m/s.

It is not surprising that the STARCO bucket has become a very popular bucket, and has been copied by a number of companies, with varying results. In a range of tests that 4B has carried out to compare their own 4B STARCO buckets with their competitors’ buckets, it has become clear that a lots of buckets actually have a lower capacity than what is claimed on paper; also the quality of the bucket itself can be very different depending on the production process and the quality of the steel used.

Great care should be taken when selecting a STARCO bucket (or a similar model). On request, 4B can provide test results and field evidence to show the differences between different models.
