Drive efficiency this month at PPPE
THE Pan Pacific Pork Expo is just around the corner.
Don’t miss your chance to be where the Australian pork industry gets togeth- er to share experiences, explore the latest tech- nologies and equipment available from around the world.
You’ll also be able to lis- ten to the latest informa- tion available on a range of topical subjects presented over a two-day event, not to mention the chance to touch base with your exist- ing industry contacts and make some new ones.
This year’s theme ‘Driv- ing efficiency together’ is a call to action to bring producers and industry stakeholders together to collaborate and adopt cost production efficiencies to overcome the challenges facing the industry in or- der to remain globally competitive.
Boosted by a strong trade exhibition, the PPPE 2018 objective for attend- ees remains the same as in
previous years: to provide accurate, positive, relevant and high-quality industry information in an engag- ing format.
The PPPE Committee is thrilled with the response the event continues to re- ceive from industry spon- sors and exhibitors – dem- onstrated this year by a sold-out exhibition hall.
This support allows us to bring world-class pres- entations to the delegates, along with the results of Australian Pork Limited and Pork CRC research, and is invaluable to the Australian pork industry.
To kick off the PPPE technical program on
Wednesday, May 30, the plenary speaker is Dr Sal- ly Isberg from the Centre for Crocodile Research with her talk ‘Learning from the ‘top end’: the challenges of crocodile farming and how we can apply it to our industry’.
This session is sponsored by Stockyard Industries.
Next up will be a session on ‘Global trends in ef- ficient animal production’.
We have assembled Dr Mark Henryon from Den- mark, Dr Steve Pollmann from the US and Mr David Speller from the UK to provide their insights into international trends and how they can be applied to the Australian pork in- dustry.
This session is spon- sored by Qingdao Deba Brothers Machinery.
Rounding the first day off will be the Industry Cocktail Party from 5pm to 8pm, proudly sponsored by Global Skilled Employ- ment Services, providing everyone a great opportu- nity to network and speak to exhibitors about the new commercial innova- tions available to produc- ers.
Attendees will also have the opportunity to watch a live celebrity cook-off as PorkStars and celeb- rity chefs Colin Fassnidge and Manu Feildel go up against two visiting high- profile Chinese chefs to showcase the versatility of Australian pork.
On Thursday, May 31, the combined sessions swing into action with a series of relevant and topi- cal discussions, starting with ‘It’s all about people’.
Sponsored by Automat-
ed Production, this ses- sion will cover ‘Sourcing and retaining staff’ with Mr Robert Tanti; ‘Is your workplace attractive for good staff? Foundations for good employees and their management, plus the importance of value based leadership’ with Ms Kathryn Thomas; and ‘An update on 457 visas in Australia’ from Mr An- drew Robertson.
The second combined session, ‘Future Farm- ing Now/Technology Driving Efficiency, is sponsored by Primegro Technologies and cov- ers ‘Integrated manage- ment of the sow as if she were an athlete’ with Dr Vivi Aarestrup Moust- sen; ‘Applying precision farming to herd man- agement’ with Ms El- len Møller Hansen; and ‘Changes we’ve made on our farm – thinking out- side the square’ with Mrs Edwina Beveridge.
The final combined ses- sion tackles the question ‘How does a processor make a connection from a carcase to a product they want to sell?’ with Mr Bian Ling from the China Cuisine Association and a representative from B E Campbell.
Finishing off the event and giving attendees one final opportunity to net- work with their colleagues across the industry is the Happy Two Hours func- tion, sponsored by BI- OMIN Australia.
This year’s PPPE is a great opportunity for producers and their farm businesses – don’t miss out, buy your ticket today at
