The aim is provide farmers with solutions, whether they are related to equipment, new practices or delegation. In terms of equipment, solutions such as pig lifts, a smart silo unloader, a hen house washing robot will be unveiled.

This year, the trade show organisers wished to highlight ‘a central subject: the health excellence of our breeding sectors’, in conjunction with GDS Bretagne. The topic will be raised during a conference with European animal health experts and in conjunction with the ARS (Association régionale de santé).
