Four livestock themed webinars brought together 550 attendees from more than 40 countries across the pig, poultry, dairy and aquaculture segments. Specialist topics presented included the implications of the COVID-19 pandemic and impact of African Swine Fever (ASF) and government regulations in animal farming.

Introduced this year as part of its expanded technical programme of the second edition of EuroTier China, the organisers, The German Agriculture Society (DLG) along with its partners offered four webinars covering current topics in the animal farming segments of pork, poultry, dairy and aquaculture over the months of May and June.

The content of the EuroTier China webinar series was tailored to the current environment with a distinct focus on the measures required to be instated in production facilities due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The webinar series included presentations on critical changes in government regulations in different parts of the world such as Biosecurity in the feed supply chains. Speakers also covered in detail, pork production after the outbreak of ASF and COVID-19 and the resulting consequences for the future pig farming in China as well as antibiotic reduction in poultry production and many more. Additional topics covered by the speakers were on wider topics for example the review of the poultry industry in Russia and Thailand and the development of the Chinese dairy industry.

With the aim to equip attendees with new knowledge including the current challenges facing the industry players across the livestock sectors of pork, poultry, dairy and aquaculture in various regions and countries, the webinars offered industry overviews and perspectives for the future of animal farming.

Best practice methods in production techniques, technologies and procedures were shared by experts via 18 technical presentations with ensuing interactions with the attendees. The speakers included farmers and producers from each livestock area, members from the ministry of agriculture from various countries and leading professional associations and industry representatives.

COVID-19, ASF, restrictions in the use of antibiotics, Biosecurity measures at the farm level - the animal farming industry as a whole is going through a significant transformation. Our mission is to provide the industry and its various stakeholders with expert market knowledge and best practices to be as adequately prepared as possible for this transition and we are pleased to now also transport this knowledge through an exciting digital platform and hopefully reach a wider audience, said Leely Zhang, managing director, DLG AgroTechService.
