Soon, Dairy Global will travel to Bangkok, Thailand, and host a seminar at VIV Asia tackling the theme ‘Maximising farm margins’. This hybrid seminar will take place on 8 March 2023 at 11.00 am (local time). Will you be joining in person or online?

It all comes down to costs. It goes without saying that this is a very important topic for livestock producers. Join Dairy Global at our exciting upcoming seminar that will take place at VIV Asia in Bangkok.

With costs on the increase in the livestock sector, it’s more important than ever to find solutions that will combat costs and enable the dairy farming sector to operate in a more efficient manner.

From better feed management to the latest progress in automation, there are many aspects to look at that can assist in keeping the dairy operation running as cost-efficiently as possible. And all of this while making sure that the animals are producing well, are healthy, and welfare is top of mind.

Of course, sometimes it’s easier said than done, which is why we bring you exciting topics and discussions during this seminar to ensure cost-efficient farming where livestock (dairy) producers can take away real solutions that will safeguard the bottom line as well as ensure top livestock performance.

We welcome you to join this seminar in person or to watch it online.

Line-up of speakers

1. Dr Kittisak Ajariyakhajorn, DVM, PhD, director of the Tropical Dairy Research Center, Chulalongkorn University, Bangkok, Thailand
Presentation topic: Maximise profits by minimising your loss and cost in the dairy crisis.
To maximise dairy profits, first, you need to minimise your loss and cost of operation by reviewing the key performance indicators (KPI) for farming performance regularly. What is your farm’s KPI?

2. Ad van Velde, president of Global Dairy Farmers

Presentation topic: Challenges in the international dairy industry, including at farm level; what can we learn from each other?
In the future, global food production systems will come under increased pressure from population growth (50% more food due to population grow by 2050), urbanisation, and climate change. Ad van Velde will talk about how dairy producers will meet these challenges and take advantage of opportunities.

  • Global trade (influencing profitability)
  • Larger dairy farms (greater use of automation to reduce costs)
  • Improvements in genetic selection

3. Prof. Dr. Monchai Duangjinda, vice president for Research and Graduate Studies, Department of Animal Science, Faculty of Agriculture, Khon Kaen University

Presentation topic: Dairy genetics improvement for current and future challenges
Dairy genetic improvement pays attention to milk production, composition, type traits and udder health for decades. The advancement of several technologies leads to challenging traits. Currently, concepts of heat tolerance and robust genetic improvement for supporting production under global warming has been practically implemented. Improvements in negative energy tolerance, functional milk, fertility, and disease resistance are future challenging concepts in dairy industries.
