Poultry meat consumption in the UAE alone is approximately 50 kg per annum. It has been reported that in Saudi Arabia, in 2015, local production of broilers only covered 42 percent of the local demand. Exorbitant imported poultry feed prices and a seasonal surge in demand results in soaring prices of poultry meat and eggs in the Middle East and North Africa region. In addition, the continued threat posed by a wide range of diseases in the region such as Avian Influenza (AI), Infectious Laryngotracheitis and Newcastle Disease severely affects production.

Achieving self-sufficient production through reducing dependency on imported feed, efficiently controlling and treating diseases, comprehending and dealing with market fluctuations and increasing animal performance is the need of the hour in the region.

EuroTier - the world’s leading brand of trade fairs for animal farming professionals is coming to Abu Dhabi, UAE. EuroTier Middle East is organized by the German Agricultural Society (DLG), with the objective to create an ideal platform for the productive exchange of information at a global level with a regional focus.

The DLG Forum at EuroTier Middle East 2019 aims to provide all the stakeholders in the poultry and egg production sector with the expert knowledge they need to achieve their goal of business expansion and thereby successfully capitalizing on the constantly increasing local demand.

On September 4 2019, at the DLG Forum at EuroTier Middle East visitors will be welcome to attended presentations not only by Poultry Farming experts but also by local governing bodies. For example, Mr. Stefan Teepker, a poultry farmer from North West Germany will provide examples on practical poultry farming techniques to combat local challenges faced by producers. In addition to that the Abu Dhabi Agriculture and Food Security Authority (ADAFSA) - strategic partner of EuroTier Middle East will cover the topic of poultry production from the perspective of future investments in infrastructure in the region, the potential areas of collaboration and opportunities available to producers to successfully expand their operations.

The technical program at EuroTier Middle East 2019 is packed with pertinent and trending topics for every stakeholder in the animal production industry.
