The International Milling Directory (IMD) is excited to welcome Richard Sillett to its marketing team. Richard has spent most of his life living opposite a wheat field, but until recently what happened to the crops after they left the combine harvester was a mystery to him.

Needless to say, he’s excited to be helping the IMD in its mission to get the right information out to its global readership.

Eurotier 2012 is Just Around the Corner…

This autumn the biannual show descends upon the Exhibition Grounds in Hanover, Germany for a four-day spectacular from November 13-16, 2012. From feed to fish, poultry to pigs and pretty much everything in between: EuroTier is one of the biggest events in the animal husbandry calendar.

Billed as an international information forum for animal production professionals, the programme will address the pig and cattle sectors and also incorporate the World Poultry Show.

So far 2,100 exhibitors from 50 countries have booked stands with organizers busy preparing for the arrival of 140,000 visitors keen to learn about machinery and equipment, genetics and farm inputs for modern animal husbandry. Most European countries are well represented and there is also a notable presence from further afield with sizeable participation from the USA and China.

The 250,000 m2 exhibition area is divided into species specific areas with dedicated floor space for pigs, poultry, cattle and aquaculture.  Visitors can find out about the latest developments in cattle genetics, modern fish farm technology, supplies for horse stables and much more.

GFMT readers will be particularly interested in the ‘Feed Gallery Special’, which makes its debut at EuroTier 2012. The need for the Feed Gallery is obvious: the unpredictable weather we’ve seen across the globe in recent months, has put increased pressure on feed manufacturers to produce quality feed at an affordable price.

At this new section EuroTier visitors will be able to and learn about the variety of raw feed materials necessary for animal care.  The most important of the 600 feed materials listed in EU feed law and the German positive list will be on show with information relating to quality and provenance.

With such a large number of feedstuffs on display, the Feed Gallery Special is a great opportunity for visitors to learn more about new and uncommon feedstuffs, as well as to find answers to questions on the quality and suitability of feeds.

EuroTier is also the place to catch a glimpse of the newest technological developments in machinery, equipment and installations with many companies unveiling new products. Top new products can also be entered for a EuroTier Innovations award.  This year over 300 products were submitted for consideration, of which 19 won silver medal and five won gold.  Gold medal winners this year include Marel Stork’s AeroScalder and GEA DairyProQ: GEA Milking Place Module from FEA Fram technologies.

Perendale Publishers, producers of the IMD, will be in attendance at the show so be sure to come be the first to see IMD21, the new international milling directory for 2012/13. Don’t forget that IMD has over 1,200 listed companies many of whom will be attending also. If you are from one of those companies and would like us to feature you in our Eurotier build-up and subsequent review please do get in touch.

See you at the show!

Swedish Firm Celebrate 50years with 3rd Generation Analysis System

Perten have announced the release of the DA 7250, a new NIR instrument designed for superior analysis accuracy of many product types in all types of environments. The Swedish firm have said that the DA 7250 removes and reduces many sources of error common to other NIR instruments.

The design incorporates non-moving optical components, internal temperature stabilization, a static hard drive encased in an IP65 rated (dust proof/water resistant) housing. It employs a large spot-size, even larger analysis area, averages many sub-samples, and uses high energy throughput diode array optics to ensure accurate and representative analysis of heterogeneous samples.

The DA 7250

Perten have recommended also that many sample types are analyzed using non-contact sampling – requiring little or no sample prep and little or no cleaning – removing cross-contamination and sample cell errors. The instrument workflow is uncomplicated encouraging correct and frequent analysis by operators interested in monitoring and controlling plant processes.

This release marks a substantial development in enhancing accuracy in analyzing with large, transferable calibrations and databases covering many products and parameters enabling rapid implementation. Existing applications include dairy, grain processing, feed, flour, oilseeds, meat, snackfood, petfood, starch, and ethanol production.

Thanks to new and updated software The DA 7250 can also be networked and administered remotely.

Speaking about the product Product Manager Stefan Tordernmalm said, “The DA 7250 provides the accuracy required to improve quality and control processes, the versatility to analyze nearly any product, the robustness to be placed nearly anywhere, the speed to measure anytime, and the advanced features required by researchers while maintaining simplicity of routine operation.”

Perten are currently listed in the IMD while you can also visit their website for more information at www.perten.com.
