The Corona pandemic has taken a different course and assumed different dimensions in various countries around the world. Also as a result of this dynamic situation it is, at present, impossible to foresee the further development. In view of the above, we wish to extend the deadline for the registration of presentations for the International Congress on the Breeding of Sheep and Goat until
31st May 2020
Taking into account the advice given by the WHO and the government, we are closely following the situation and developments around the globe in order to guarantee the best possible level of safety for you. We can also learn lessons from the Corona pandemic for animal husbandry. We therefore expressly encourage the submission of contributions related to experiences from the situation. We will keep you up-to-date on further developments on our website.
Save the Date – 15th-16th October 2020:
Sheep and goats are among the oldest livestock animals due to their diverse uses. With much passion and diligence people have dedicated themselves to the breeding and keeping of various sheep and goat breeds. These livestock keepers provide an important contribution to a sustainable agriculture and to the conservation of biodiversity.
The German Federal Ministry of Food and Agriculture is organizing the
International Congress on the Breeding of Sheep and Goats
on 15th – 16th October 2020
in the World Conference Centre Bonn (Germany),
to inform the branche about the current state of science regarding breeding and husbandry issues and to offer a platform for an exchange of knowledge.
Please make a note of the date now.
We would be delighted to welcome you to this event.
