Don’t miss our keynote speaker sharing their experience and expertise in this field.  Dr. Maarten De Gussem, VetWorks Global Poultry Consultant

    • Equipment is intended to help you do the same job, even better and with less effort. When equipment hits the farm, you may need to work out the kinks to get it running top notch. What new ideas should you consider? David Speller, CEO/ Founder of Applied a Poultry Farming & Consultancy

    • Innovation in the poultry sector can happen slowly over years, and appear on the farm in the blink of an eye. What are the innovations that may have the biggest impact on our sector – and how will we adapt to including them for our benefit? All this and more will be revealed.  Aidan Connolly, president of AgriTech Capital and CEO of Cainthus
