This paper summarises two analyses of minimum bias data collected with the LHCb detector from pp collisions at the LHC. The geometry, tracking and particle identification system of the LHCb experiment provide unique capabilities for this type of study in a kinematic region where QCD models have large uncertainties. Measurements of prompt hadron production ratios and forward energy flow are presented and compared to predictions from MC event generators.
