SPACE will be 30 years old this year, and strongly reflects the dynamics of its sector. Our "Planet Livestock" will again mirror what is happening in our livestock sectors. Pig production has been showing improvement in the past few months, resulting in an increase in the number of exhibitors involved in the pig sector this year. The poultry sector, however, has been severely impacted by the recent, ongoing episode of avian flu. It is also faced with a major future challenge which will require compliance with new standards, and changes needed to meet consumer demand for cage-free eggs. The dairy sector is undergoing restructuring and suffering from price levels that are too low to enable farmers to cover their costs or make investments.
In an ever-changing environment requiring agility and quick adjustments on the part of farmers, SPACE responds to these needs by providing cutting-edge solutions for our industry.
Our Expo will again provide the opportunity for discussion, debate and reflection on the challenges ahead for the livestock sector, as well as a unique showcase for innovations.
