Record Breaking Year for Eurotier 2012

It was a bumper week in Hannover last week (13-16th) as nearly 200,000 animal husbandry farmers & experts and international visitors attended Eurotier 2012.

The worlds largest exhibition of its kind, Eurotier brought together 2,445 direct exhibitors including Perendale Publishers who were media-supporters for the event. Dr. Reinhard Grandke, Chief Executive Officer for Deutsche Landwirtschafts-Gesellschaft (DLG) who organized it announced that, “EuroTier 2012 has reached new record levels,” when speaking to the press in HaNnover at the close of EuroTier on 16 November 2012.

Perhaps more compelling proof of Eurotier’s stature of success this year has to be that half of the 2,445 that exhibited had come from outside of Germany, representing a 40% increase on 2010.  The number of visitors was also up by 10% this year on the previous forum, 160,000 of them went for the latest information and future technology which is crucial to farming in the 21st century.

A stand-alone feature of the new look Eurotier was the unique program addressing feed and animal health which is an essential

sector of the industry with around 22% of the IMD being made up of companies who specialize in animal-feed based activities. Perendale Publishers very own International Sales and Marketing Manager, Darren Parris, managed to catch up with some who attended including AB Vista, Norel and Sonac. He said, “I’ve loved meeting up with so many of them with this being my first Eurotier, you get so much more out of meeting people in person and to have everybody under one roof has been fantastic.”

BioEnergy remains a very important subject as we continue to try and source safer and more economical ways of fueling the planet. 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 12% compared with 2010, which is attributable above all to the technology leadership in this industry.

We’ll have more from our Eurotier round-up over the coming days, and work has already begun on planing for the next EuroTier which will be held in Hannover from 11 to 14 November 2014. In the meantime why don’t you tell us your favourite story from the show by commenting on this article, you can also comment on our twitter page @IMD12.

InterFax have also said that Russia’s total 2012/13 grain exports are now estimated at 12 MMT versus the previous estimate of 16 MMT.
The USDA attaché in Russia estimates Russia’s 2012 grain crop significantly higher at 81.0 MMT, including 47 MMT of wheat, 15 MMT of barley and 7.5 MMT of corn. Grain exports are pegged at 15.0 MMT, including 11 MMT of wheat, 2 MMT of barley, and 1.5 MMT of corn.
UK harvesting of winter barley and oilseed rape started about 7-10 days later than normally expected with about 40% of the winter barley and almost 20% of the winter oilseed rape area harvested by 31 July, mostly in the south according to the HGCA with wheat harvesting expected to commence in just over a week.

They said, “Early indications are that UK winter barley yields are close to average at around 6.3 MT/ha with improved yields from normal on light land. Quality is variable,”

“Early indications are that UK rapeseed yields are close to the five year average at around 3.5 MT/ha, lower than the record yield of 3.9 MT/ha in 2011,” they conclude.

Meanwhile the German Farmers Union (DBV) say that the winter barley harvest there is nearly complete, with yields averaging 6.3 MT/ha. The rapeseed harvest is around 70% done with yields averaging 3.3 MT.ha, they add.

Atlanta Expo Puts Eggs in One Basket

The International Production & Processing Expo (IPPE) will serve as the umbrella name for the new U.S. Poultry & Egg Association (USPOULTRY), American Feed Industry Association (AFIA), and American Meat Institute (AMI) 2013 Expo in Atlanta. The operation of this single structure makes it one of the 50 largest tradeshows in the United States with more than 1,000 expected exhibitors and close to 400,000 net square feet of exhibit space.

Each association will continue to operate independently, serving their respective constituents in offering targeted education and networking opportunities that compliment the Expo. This newly announced cooperation also sees the launch of the brand new logo for the 2013 Expo (above) which brings together the expertise of three major associations.

U.S. Poultry & Egg Association is an all-feather organization representing the complete spectrum of today’s poultry industry, while AFIA is the world’s largest organization devoted exclusively to representing the business, legislative and regulatory interests of the U.S. animal feed industry and its suppliers. AMI represents the interests of packers and processors of beef, pork, lamb, veal and turkey products and their suppliers throughout North America.

The event takes place at the Georgia World Congress Center Atlanta, GA in January 2013. The full show times are as follows: Tuesday, January 29, 2013: 11 a.m. – 6 p.m. Wednesday, January 30, 2013: 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. Thursday, January 31, 2013: 9 a.m. – 3 p.m.

There will be plenty of available accommodation in the surrounding areas thanks to the centre’s prime location, but potential attendees should book now to avoid disappointment.

For full details subscribers should visit www.ipe13.org where you can find more about the expo and the necessary travel and hotel arrangements.

Any IMD listed companies attending can notify us of their attendance using PLAPP or by contacting me nearer the time.
