Focus on Asia’s animal husbandry sector at EuroTier China 2019

EuroTier 21EuroTier China is all set to be organised from 19-21 September 2019 at Qingdao International Convention and Exhibition Centre, China, focusing on all species in animal farming along every step of the value chain

EuroTier in Germany is one of the world’s leading trade shows for animal production and EuroTier China, organised by DLG AgroTechService, DLG International GmbH and Beijing Tech Centre (BTC), is a new spin-off event, aiming to serve as a global platform for innovations in the world of animal husbandry.

As the largest economy in Eastern Asia, China, in terms of agriculture, is widely well known for its rice production as well as wheat, maize, soy and cotton. The country is a massive meat producer and the world’s leading fishing nation also.

In the context of internationalising EuroTier, DLG analysed China’s swine and cattle sector. Alongside already existing strong hygiene deficiencies, the recent outbreak of African swine fever (ASF) prompted the Chinese government to establish new and modern production sites in the less densely populated areas in the north of the country.

That is why the main investments – by government and farmers – in the near future are expected to be focused on building and modernising animal housing and improving the feed and the hygiene conditions.

Added to this, Chinese dairy cattle farmers are planning to expand milk production and improve the milk quality so that investments are expected to focus on optimising animal housing and feed.

EuroTier China aims to be cooperating with partners in the region that have good livestock husbandry networks in their respective agricultural regions, developing new concepts and providing important input to the industry.
