10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Theme Day Insects

The theme day "Insects" focuses on the potential of insects as an alternative source of protein. In addition to being used as animal feed, farmed insects or their components can also be used in the production of meat substitutes, other foods and cosmetics in the future. Experts from science and practice will provide information on the current situation and market-ready concepts on the theme day.

10 a.m. to 3 p.m., Feed & Food for Future

Simulation game: From barn to vertical farmThe conversion of animal barns into vertical farms offers innovative opportunities for sustainable and future-oriented agriculture. However, before this vision can become reality, a number of hurdles need to be overcome in order to give farmers the necessary planning security. An interdisciplinary exchange of experts will shed light on how the synergy of the various professional areas - agriculture, construction, building and data technology - can transform the former animal barn into a state-of-the-art vertical farm and exploit the potential to make regional agriculture more sustainable and efficient.

Alternative protein sources: Advancing sustainable agriculture with new technologies.The processing of biowaste from households and the food industry into nutrient-rich animal feed reduces food losses and at the same time saves raw materials that are used to produce conventional animal feed. In addition, the range of alternative feedstuffs extends from insect protein, algae and microorganisms to the use of earthworms. Both research and development in these areas are constantly progressing in order to reduce the environmental impact of existing resources and use them more efficiently. The aim is to offer farmers new, sustainable options in the field of animal feed in the long term.
