The theme of the forum is "Sustainability: defining the basics, addressing the essentials, introducing NutriEconomics®".
"The great challenge in agricultural science today is to produce sufficient food in a sustainable system that will feed the 9 billion people expected to be on this earth by 2050" says Professor David Farrell, a key speaker. "As the price of food escalates and food riots are happening amongst the poor, we must get smarter to meet the challenge. There are solutions and there will be costs."
With more people to feed and finite resources to depend on, the feed and animal production industry has to grow profitably in an ecologically sustainable manner.
Targeting at key industry professionals from the poultry, pig, dairy and aquaculture sectors, the forum will feature an impressive panel of leading industry experts like David Farrell, professor from the University of Queensland; John Baize, president of John C. Baize and Associates; Robert Van Barneveld,  professor from the University of New England and consultant tesearch scientist (Nutrition) at Barneveld Nutrition Pty Ltd, and Maximilian Schuh,consultant and experienced veterinarian in diseases of swine and cattle.
