Agro Animal Show 2019
Kiew 19/2 - 22/2 2019
Vilomix Ukraine at the International exhibition of effective animal husbandry and poultry
Vilomix Ukraine took part in the exhibition Agro Animal Show - 2019 — Ukraine's largest exhibition event in the agro-industrial sector.
Vilomix Ukraine traditionally took part in the 9th International exhibition of effective animal husbandry and poultry Agro Animal Show - 2019. We presented the first in Ukraine non-injectable iron product developed with the aim to optimize potential growth and supply the lack of iron in piglets.
The stand Vilomix aroused great interest of the exhibition visitors and became a platform for negotiations and discussion of topical issues of animal husbandry and feeding. We not only met with regular partners with whom we have been cooperating for many years, but also established contacts with new potential customers. Many clients visited our booth to share the positive results of the implementation of the feeding strategy developed by Vilomix specialists and to learn about the company's innovations.
The International exhibition of effective animal husbandry and poultry is the largest professional event of the agro-industrial sector in Ukraine, which this year was visited by more than 18,200 people from 30 countries of the world. 570 companies from 23 countries of the world were represented at the exhibition, the most pressing issues were discussed, innovative technologies and products of the agro-industrial sector were presented.
As part of the exhibition, more than 30 business events were held on topical issues of the agro-industrial sector of Ukraine. Experts talked about how 2018 was for the pig industry and what to prepare for in the future. In January 2019, Ukrainian farms produced 224 thousand tons of meat of all kinds, which is 2.9% higher than in January 2018. But in the pig industry recorded a slight reduction in production, which amounted to 0.1%. In 2019, analysts predict an increase in the production, consumption and import of pork and its products (the Association of Pig Producers of Ukraine writes about this). According to the preliminary results of the experts of the “Economic Discussion Club”, the production of pig-breeding products in Ukraine in 2019 can grow to 750 thousand tons (+ 1%). It is noted that in 2019 we can expect some recovery in the consumption of pig meat and meat products by 1% compared to last year’s 744 thousand tons.
At present, many farms in Ukraine use grain feed in pure form or in the form of simple grain mixtures in animal feeding, which reduces animal productivity and feed conversion, and consequently increases the cost of livestock products. In addition, there is a violation of energy and carbohydrate-fat metabolism, reduced productivity, there are problems with reproduction. Therefore, the low popularity of the use of premixes in feeding is a serious problem hindering the development of livestock. This reduces the productivity of animals, decreases feed conversion and increases the cost of livestock products.
