GERMANY - Approximately 100 members of the European Pig Producers (EPP) recently undertook an interesting practically-oriented excursion: Within the scope of this year’s European Pig Producers’ Club Congress in Münster, Germany, the experts had the opportunity of visiting the Big Dutchman Group headquarters and inspecting pig equipment for modern pig management. The topic of biogas also featured on their programme.

A visit to a local pig production farm with a biogas plant complemented the excursion programme. The farmer Ingrid Vaske gave the guests a lively and interesting account of everyday life for an agricultural family business in this region. She was able to convey a comprehensive overview on the basis of her own practical experience.

In addition to the Big Dutchman pig housing the 365 kWel biogas plant, which is currently in the process of construction, attracted very great interest. The plant is being erected by BD AgroRenewables GmbH&Co KG, the biogas division of the Big Dutchman Group. BD AGRO Managing Director Uwe Heider therefore enjoyed the opportunity of accompanying the guests on their tour and giving them detailed explanations about the plant.
