The keynote of the Exhibition:
Energy efficiency and controlled environment in animal husbandry and poultry farming
This topic will run throughout the AgroFarm programme and will be discussed at the information center as well as in conference and workshop sessions because maintaining an optimum indoor environment is the second most significant cost factor after feeding. As electricity costs keep growing, energy saving technologies are becoming increasingly important.
The Information Center facilities will showcase cutting edge environment control technologies for animal and poultry farms including various solutions in the following areas: air quality control, lighting and temperature control. The Information Center will be open for the entire duration of the AgroFarm Exhibition.
Practical demonstrations will be complemented by a conference bringing together experts who will brief the participants on the use of energy efficient technologies for maintaining stable environments in animal and poultry farming.
The conference will start at 11:00, on February 6, 2013, Room A, Forum 3, Hall 75, VVC
