He expects 400 companies to exhibit at IndoLivestock 2014 with regional pavilions expanding to new regions: there was a new Korean pavillion for instance at 2013 that is returning next year.

Some of the many benefits are: • High quality and durable equipment (made in Holland) • Modular and flexible setup • Pre-assembled and tested machines • Saving on shipment costs; • Short erection times • Savings on civil works and building.

When coupled with the building of feed mills and other projects that are assisted by the government and the new National Agriculture Food Policy underscores their planning approach to helping the industry. The use of idle land, and genetically modified technologies are both expanding with scales of production. Value chains and supply chains were highlighted for meeting at Livestock Asia.
