FeedTechnoVision - Recording available


08/09/2022 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM

The demand for global compound feed production continues to grow in 2022-2023 lead by Asia and North America. Rising feed costs pose a significant challenge to animal production. After a critical look at the production processes in feed processing operations, the feed Industry is urged to answer by offering alternative solutions to optimise resource utilisation and manufacturing processes, while providing safe and nutritious feed. During FeedTechnoVision we aimed to inspire you to cope with global trends. Watch the recordings and download the presentations on this page.
