Program

The program of the XVIII International Silage Conference consists of key-note presentations by invited speakers, volunteered oral presentations and poster sessions.

A sponsor exhibition will also take place during the conference.

The scientific program will be complemented by five pre- or post-conference tours covering different regions of Germany.

Starting with a 1-day roundtrip giving you some impressions of typical dairy farms in western Germany and cultural highlights of the skyline of Frankfurt, we will also offer 2-, 3- and 4-day-tours providing a broad variety of agricultural and cultural highlights, being typical for the different regions of Germany and some selected companies with focus on agricultural products and machinery.

The short tour descriptions provide a first overview and will be followed by a more detailed schedule including participation fee.
