Build My Feed Mill is a conference organised by Perendale with the support of VIV based on a flow chart of a typical feed mill and covers the many aspects of feed mill operations. It’s an incredible opportunity for companies that supply feed manufacturers with advanced equipment and other services to showcase and explain their most technically advanced innovations.
The Build My Feed Mill (BMFM) conference was hosted on the last day of VIV Asia 2023 on March 10. We have held this conference many times in the past with the support of VIV and VICTAM at many of their previous events, such as in 2021 at VIV MEA in Dubai and 2022 with VICTAM Asia.
One of the attendees had come to talk to us after the conference, telling us some of her thoughts, “The conference is filled with lots of interesting information. I plan to visit some of the companies that spoke soon!”
Lasting two hours, each speaker has ten minutes to present with an intended additional ten minutes at the end for the audience to ask the speakers questions. We had ten separate speakers for the conference with eleven topics covered. We greatly appreciate every speaker and company that worked with us to make Build My Feed Mill the success that it was and we thank every one of them.
We started off the conference with Dr Olaf Nahrig from Amandus Kahl and his presentation ‘Roller Mills and Expander’. We then moved onto Marco Prati from PLP Systems and his presentation ‘Liquid & Powder additives: where and how to use in the feed process’, Claus Braunbeck from Frigortec and his presentation ‘Grain Management for reliable feed milling’ and Hang (Keith) Yin from Famsun and his presentation ‘How artificial intelligence affect the feed mill’. To complete the first hour was Jonathan Zheng from Zhengchang and his presentation ‘Application of Zhengchang horizonal dryer’. The first hour was incredibly fascinating to listen to and was filled to the brim with astounding knowledge.
We move into the second hour with a double presentation from Harold Schrojen from Van Aarsen and his two presentations were ‘Conditioning: the secret behind a quality pellet’ and ‘Get a grip on grinding’. The last few speakers after Schrojen were Cornelis de Zwaan from Münch-Edelstahl GmbH with ‘New flexible container for feed pellet producing’, Harry Chiu from IDAH presenting ‘Carousel dryer’ and Dr Erfan Shahkar from Agentis Innovations with ‘Automation & digitalisation: Farm to plant’. We then end the conference with a presentation from Marty van Benthum from Triott with ‘Advantages of PTN MonoRoll pellet-mill’ which was followed by the wrap-up QnA. This second hour is just as amazing as the first with a variety of topics covered.
BMFM is always a successful conference, and I would love to announce that it was a major success once again; it was a full-house event with nearly every seat being filled. We hope to hold the Build My Feed Mill conference again in the future and if you or your company would like to participate as a speaker or to just have more information then please get in touch with us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
