Complementary to the scientific program there will be a Manufacturers Showcase, Digital Pitches and Digital Booths.


The conference offers an excellent opportunity to get in touch with the latest development in the sector. This conference is of great interest for policy makers on future farming systems, for researchers, for staff and for managers involved in cattle breeding, animal performance recording and sensor technology around the globe.
