The international Exhibition “Meat & Poultry Industry / VIV Russia 2007” and “Refrigeration Technology & Frozen Foods Show” was opened on May 21, 2007 at the “Crocus Expo” exhibition center.


The following persons participated in the opening ceremony:

Vladimir Fisinin – President of the “RosPtitseSoyuz (Russian Poultry Union)”, first Vice-President of the Russian Academy of Agricultural Sciences, member of the Russian Academy of Agricultural Sciences,

Serguei Yakovlev - Deputy Chief of Department of Veterinary Supervision of the Rosselkhoznadzor (Federal Agency for Veterinary and Phytosanitary Supervision),

Bernard Petrau - Commercial Adviser for the Embassy of France in Russia,

Jimmy Essing - President of VNU Exhibition Europe,

Nariner Bagmanyan - President of the exhibition company "Asti Group".

Mr. Jimmy Essing, President of the exhibition company VNU Exhibition Europe, addressed the participants and visitors of the exhibition and said that he was happy to open an exhibition in Russia (Moscow) for the third time. Three years ago nobody expected that this project would develop in an exhibition of such a large scale. This year more than 350 companies from 26 countries participated in the exhibition. It is 4 times relevant figure for the last exhibition in Moscow in 2005 and this provides evidence of the fact that the animal husbandry continues to rapidly develop in Russia. Over 4500 square meters of the exhibition spaces were occupied by foreign companies, and the remaining 4000 sq. m - by Russian companies. The exhibition attracted great interest from both, its participants and visitors. According to preliminary registration, visitors from 83 countries will visit the VIV Russia 2007 exhibition. For this reason VNU Exhibition Europe decided to held the exhibition VIV Europe 2008 in Moscow! We hope, said Mr. Jimmy Essing, that VIV Europe 2008 will be a good proof of successful development of animal husbandry and poultry farming in Russia.

He thanked all those who helped organize this event: Ministry of Agriculture of the Russian Federation, Chamber of Commerce and Industry (TPP) of the Russian Federation, Meat Union of Russia, Rosptitsesoyuz (Russian Poultry Union), Rossvinprom (Russian Swine Industry), Rosvetkormsoyuz, Russian Union of Enterprises of the Refrigerating Industry, Department of Food Resources and Department of the Consumer Market and Services of the city of Moscow. Mr. Essing wished all participants and visitors good luck and successful work.

Vladimir Fisinin congratulated all of the participants and visitors on the event, which was perceived by them as a festive occasion. He said that as President of the Russian National Committee of the World’s Poultry Science Association he visited similar exhibitions abroad, and the exhibition, which we open today, is no worse than similar exhibitions in other countries and in many respects even surpasses them.

In the two exhibition’s halls companies displayed all equipment and solutions needed by poultry farmers: selection projects, equipment, veterinary methods and many other items, which are necessary for rapid development of the poultry farming in Russia. Undoubtedly, the knowledge exchanged between poultry farmers from all over the world and the experience acquired at the exhibition is of great value.

In his speech of welcome Serguei Yakovlev emphasized, that the exhibition is unique, as the acquaintance with its exhibits is useful for both, newcomer businessmen (equipment, forage, processing of poultry and meat, veterinary services) and farmers. The exhibition’s atmosphere is favorable for exchange of skills, knowledge and technologies between manufacturers and consumers and those who plan to start a new business, establish new contacts and acquire necessary skills.

Bernard Petrau welcomed the participants of the exhibition and said that France has presented here products and equipment produced by 22 enterprises. France maintains a leading position in the European agriculture, attentively watches the development of agriculture in Russia and can be of significant interest for the Russian cattle-breeding, poultry and hog farms. For example, Brittany, the French leader in animal husbandry, possesses the cutting-edge technologies, which might be of great interest for Russian companies. We thank the organizers of the exhibition for the opportunity to demonstrate here French achievements in animal husbandry and poultry farming to our Russian colleagues, wish success to all of the exhibition’s participants and invite all interested persons to visit proper exhibition in France.

Nariner Bagmanyan welcomed the visitors and participants of the exhibition and thanked all state structures, associations and branch institutes for support and help in the organization of the exhibition and the entire agribusiness industry of Russia, with which the exhibition company "Asti Group" maintains close ties. We think, she said when delivering her speech, that Russia is capable to both, produce enough food to meet domestic demands and export livestock and poultry products. In Russia there exist a huge potential and century-long traditions, and the latter must be kept in mind, actively developed and supported. For this reason two competitions are held under the auspices of the Ministry of Agriculture of the Russian Federation within the framework of this exhibition. The first of them is the competition of novel projects, which permits to reveal the best domestic achievements displayed at the exhibition and thus facilitates the quickest possible launching of batch production of novel products. The second competition is the all-Russia competition of scientific works performed by students, post-graduate students and young scientists and dedicated to the topic: "Development of the agribusiness industry of the Russian Federation”, which was for the first time held this year. Over 20 Russian academic institutions participated in the competition. The winners are already named and today they will receive diplomas of the exhibition and grants. We think that such events must be considered as both, marketing solutions of the exhibition company and our participation in further revival of the agribusiness sector of Russia, which is a must. Now, talented and active young people must be supported through creating all necessary conditions for work and researches in the country, city or territory, Nariner Bagmanyan emphasized.

At this point the ceremony of opening of the International Exhibition “Meat & Poultry Industry / VIV Russia 2007” and “Refrigeration Technology & Frozen Foods Show” ended.

On the first day of the work of the exhibition started the International conference Animal husbandry and poultry farming: modern trends and Russian market.

At the plenary session "Main directions in the development of the meat market and implementation of the agrarian policy in animal husbandry and poultry farming" Gregor Tallard, FAO, an expert in international meat market, made a comprehensive and dynamic report. It was titled "General condition of the global meat industry and place of Russia in the meat market". The lecturer noted that in 2004-2006 the poultry market in developed countries experienced difficulties because of the avian flu. Prices went down; both, demand and investment policy were changed. But one expects a growth in poultry production in 2007 and a rise in poultry prices. One problem faced by world manufacturers is the expected rise in prices for fodder, if the demand for grains and legumes used for production of ethanol (as an alternative to traditional fuel) increases. In Russia one expects a growth in meat consumption, first of all, in connection with the growth of incomes of the population. By 2016 the consumption of poultry will increase by 57 %, pork - by 33 % and beef - by 5-6 %. According to forecasts, in 2016 the dependence on import will be reduced down to a level of about 28%. The main problems to be kept in mind are the dissemination of diseases of animals and birds, compliance with sanitary requirements imposed on the production of food, relationships in the sphere of trade and environmental matters.

M.L. Mamikonyan, President of the Meat Union of Russia, made a report titled "Development of the meat market in Russia". The lecturer presented a detailed review of the structure of the meat market and that of the meat processing industry in the Russian Federation by 2007. He noted, that the year 2006 was critical for hog farming, as the volumes increased by 5% as a result of real competition between domestic and foreign producers of meat. The hog farming industry faces problems reducing its competitiveness. First of all, they include insufficient selection work, supply of bulk meat to processing enterprises and a large number of enterprises with poor organization of labor.

V.I. Fisinin, first Vice-President of the Russian Academy of Agricultural Sciences, President of the “RosPtitseSoyuz (Russian Poultry Union)” made his report titled "Global problems faced by the poultry farming industry at the present stage". He compared trends in the development of domestic and world poultry farming industry. There is a significant growth in the number of large highly profitable poultry farms that allowed to reduce the import from 67% in 1996 to 46% in 2006. There are the following trends in the development of the domestic production: increase of both, physical volumes and range of products, including the share of chilled products, reorganization of the structure of consumption and processing of eggs, including in liquid form in aseptic packing, organization of the deep processing of meat. Currently a more dynamic development of this branch is hampered due to the imperfection of the legislation. Because of huge retail margins (by 2-3 times) most of profits remain in the hands of meat dealers.

V.N. Shanin, General Director of “RosSvinProm (Russian Swine Industry)” has considered in detail problems relating to the increase in the production of pork. Alongside with the actual positive picture of growth of both, the volume and the population of hogs, the lecturer focused on the emerging negative tendencies in connection with realization of pork for both, sale and processing. Prices went down by 30-40 % compared with the end of the last year, and this can be regarded as a disaster for domestic hog farms. The domestic production is insufficiently protected from the import pressure, in particular because of the existence of the so-called "gray" circuits of importation of pork from China, Baltic countries, Ukraine and other European countries. Urgent measures must include regulation and protection of the domestic market thanks to proper increase in the customs duties and introduction of price ceiling. Besides these measures the domestic swine industry needs that the government support breeding farms in the form of preferential crediting and preferential tax treatment. The state must also provide the currently missing financing for research.

Then K.S. Yankovski, a specialist of department of standardization and certification of the All-Russia Institute of the Meat Industry, made a report titled "Technical regulations for meat and meat processing". Problems relating to the regulations are especially urgent in connection with the admittance of Russia to the WTO, as national standards are to be harmonized with the international ones. Today at least 30% of domestic standards for products and 50% of domestic standards for meat must be revised. However, one obstacle is the missing financing on the part of the state. However, there exist programs providing for complete revision of the standards by 2010, but the pace of such work is too slow and such programs are implemented in an incoherent manner.

E.A. Baguiryan, the Executive Director of "Rossoyuzkholodprom" made a report titled “Development of the technical regulations for refrigerating equipment". When discussing the importance of development of the refrigerating industry for storage of products at cold store facilities and generation of artificial cold, the lecturer presented a project for creation of a system of service maintenance of refrigerating facilities and equipment. He thinks that cold is the key factor for the development of poultry farming and animal husbandry, allowing to markedly reduce the cost of products. Already 18 service centers for refrigerating equipment have been created within the framework of this program, allowing to quickly and skillfully eliminate the malfunctions during storage and processing of meat products.

The last report at the plenary session was made by V.V. Gushchin, Director of the All-Russia Research Institute (Vnii) of the Poultry Processing Industry. It was titled "Prospects for development of the Russian meat market: increase in the domestic production of poultry meat". The lecturer described in detail the main problems faced by the branch, which develops in a sharply competitive environment. The domestic poultry market is in such a condition that one urgently needs to establish import quotas and revise customs duties, which currently are not favorable for Russian manufacturers. Besides it, huge profits are received by purchasing agents and sellers of products rather than by producers. There are only few vertically integrated structures: production - processing - commercial network. Production in such spheres as baby food, schoolchildren’s meals and ready-to-serve dishes is insufficient. Advertising and promotion of domestic brands are insufficient. Problem relating to the lack of staff have been aggravated, there is an urgent necessity of refining the normative base, revision of standards and methods for measuring the content of contaminants.

At the end of the session there was an animated discussion of the above-mentioned problems.

Conference hall No. 1

Section meeting: "Innovative technologies in the pig farming industry"

Modern problems associated with design and construction of pig farms in Russia.

Igor Ilyin, General Director of the limited-liability company AgroProektInvest, said that today the condition of the domestic hog farming is characterized by obsolete technologies, high labor costs, increased cost of fodder, low weight gains and low quality of meat, loss of a relatively large percentage of piglets. Therefore one can hardly speak about profitability of the production with the use of obsolete technologies and equipment and genetic parameters, which virtually have not been improved. However, despite the general picture of obsoleteness of the equipment of hog farms, some large hog farms upgraded the production processes and introduced new technologies and the best foreign genetics, having achieved a high level of profitability.

AgroProektInvest has developed a program within the framework of the national project titled "Accelerated development of the swine industry". This program provides for the solution of such problems as:

1. Cost of produced products not higher than 30 rubles per 1 kg of live weight;

2. Improvement of qualitative parameters of pork, increase in the degree of meagerness up to 65 % and reduction of thickness of the layer of fat down to 1.5-2 cm;

3. Increase of the number of piglets up to 24 live piglets per 1 breeding sow per annum;

4. Reduction of the consumption of fodder to 2.5-3 kg per 1 kg of weight gain;

5. Achievement of the weight of 110 kg after 165-185 days of fattening and completion of growing.

In order to achieve such characteristics of pork, which are competitive in the world market, one must use new technologies and equipment, skilled staff, high quality veterinary and sanitary services and modern genetics. The program of technical and technological re-equipment of the swine industry includes three main directions: reconstruction of the existing specialized enterprises producing pork; construction of new hog farms; production of pork by farmers and part-time farmers.

Pathways for development of the European selection in the hog farming industry of Russia

Schurdt van der Linde, Regional Manager of “TOPIGS International”, Holland

Topigs International is the world largest selection company. The business environment of the company includes the research institute IPG on genetics and hog farming. The developments of the institute specializing in matters relating to artificial insemination, are used in over 40 countries.

Main topics of the IPG program: survivability of piglets and maternal features; knowledge and use of markers and genes (patents); genetic aspects of health and immunity; quality of bulk meat.

The institute pays special attention to the development of databases on hogs: assessment of breeding parameters, optimization of breeding programs in the world. The data are weekly updated in more than in 750 hog farms all around the world.

TOPIGS International has signed a contract for 4500 sows and 42 boars of three breeds and concluded a distributor agreement with the limited-liability company "Kamsky Bacon" and the latter became an official distributor of the TOPIGS International in Tatarstan.

European technologies for swine feeding

A.K. Schwann, Regional Manager of “Schauer”

The Austrian company Schauer is engaged in activities dealing with technologies for breeding and feeding livestock (hogs, cattle, horses), fisheries and production of biogas. The company employs cutting-edge technologies with the purposes of optimization of the profits in the swine industry. Being a leader on the Austrian domestic market, the company also exports the equipment for livestock farms, including the first class feeding equipment , to European countries, as well as South-Eastern Asia and USA. The strategy of Schauer is underlain by the following principles: competent and individual planning, qualitative production with a highest possible level of functionality, reliability of the system for services and supplies of spare parts.

New technologies for removal of manure with the use of slatted floors

Eugenia Karg, Regional Manager of “Fog Agrotekhnik”, Denmark

The company presented systems for removal of liquid manure "Pull and Release", which were developed in the Pskov oblast (province). The company also manufactures a wide range of products for the swine industry: valves, pig-iron partitions, triangular and plastic partitions, irrigative system, carts for dead animals.

New technological equipment for the swine industry

Torben Knudsen, regional manager of Egebjerg International, Denmark

The company is committed to two main principles: hogs should feel comfortable and solutions must be convenient for employees. The company manufactures boxes for hog farms, equipped with systems for electronic feeding and convenient gates for breeding sows. These systems are very reliable being equipped with a central lock (it is possible to simultaneously close the boxes with all hogs), and their operation is simple and convenient for the personnel, since the systems do not employ computers. For this reason the majority of the Danish farmers prefer to use these system boxes.

New approaches to production of compound animal feedstuffs and vitamin supplements.

Speaker: Franz Horst, WEDA export coordinator, Germany

The company manufactures systems for liquid and dry feeding. Systems for dry feeding have such an advantage as simplicity of installation, but there is a risk of overeating. Franz Horst recommended to use systems for liquid feeding because the fed portions of fodder are small and therefore the fodder is always fresh. According to the results of researches conducted by WEDA, liquid feeding is cost-effective as it allows to save about 4 EURO per 1 fattened hog if compared with dry feeding. All systems are cleaned by ultraviolet rays, or one can use alkaline acids??. WEDA is the sole world company, which can conduct the PH-control during piglets feeding.

Energy-conservative systems of ventilation and heating.

Michal Venjoles, manager of Fm Group, Spain

It is well known, that at hog farms plenty of heat is lost through walls and ceilings. Therefore when constructing hog farms, one important element is high quality insulating materials and fan equipment capable to create comfortable conditions for the animals. Such equipment and technologies are offered by FM Group.
