2021 edition of the event will be held virtually, between the 23rd and 26th of March

Continuing with its commitment to bringing knowledge to the swine production chain, Yes, a company that develops biotechnological solutions for effective, safe and sustainable animal nutrition, in partnership with Desppo, distributor of its products in the Mexican market, confirms its presence at the XXVII AMVECAJ 2021 Congress. For the first time the event will be held virtually, between March 23 and 26, still as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic.

On the occasion, the veterinarian and CEO of Yes, Luciano Roppa, will participate in the event giving the lecture Pig farming 5.0, on March 24, during the morning plenary sessions. The presentation is in line with the event's more technical approach, which will feature lectures focused on technology and innovation in pig farming.

“The last few decades have defined the current global swine industry, with the development and implementation of new technologies. This movement, linked to the competitiveness of the sector and the need for greater production, has provided the use of different technologies and simultaneous solutions, which gave rise to the new 5.0 swine production, which goes beyond the swine sector and which has already gained agribusiness and world agriculture,” explains Roppa.
