Organized by the DLG (German Agricultural Society), EuroTier is the central venue for international farmers, contractors, distributors and other experts from both science and practice. Core exhibition areas include animal welfare, animal health, sustainability, emission reduction, breeding, livestock management, feeding, digitalization, farm management, processing and marketing. Exhibitors will present to visitors  a comprehensive overview of innovations, solutions and established standards for cattle, pig and poultry farming.

Information on sheep and goats, boarding horses, aquaculture, alternative proteins and direct farm sales round off the exhibition and technical program. The international poultry industry will be joining the World Poultry Show, once again held at EuroTier. EnergyDecentral, the international trade fair for decentralized power generation and agricultural energy, and the Inhouse Farming Feed & Food Show, DLG’s new platform for self-contained agricultural and food systems of the future, will be held parallel to the world’s leading trade fair.

Current social and political demands, greater concern both for the environment and for the welfare of animals pose challenges for the future of livestock farming throughout the world. EuroTier will show that these challenges can best be met by the livestock industry which provides new technological solutions and modern equipment designed to further the sustainable development of this high-growth sector of the economy.

“Under the guiding theme ‘We innovate animal farming’, exhibitors at EuroTier 2024 will present a variety of ways in which new and innovative approaches and strategies can be used to improve the efficiency, sustainability and ethical standards of animal husbandry,” says Ines Rathke, Project Manager of EuroTier, describing the central importance of EuroTier for international livestock farming.
