The Corona pandemic makes international travel and the planning of future trips difficult. For experts who are unable to attend the International Congress on the Breeding of Sheep and Goat in person, we would like to offer the possibility to submit Congress presentations in the form of video contributions. We will therefore extend the deadline for the submission of presentations for the International Congress on the Breeding of Sheep and Goat
until 14 June 2020
Together with the relevant associations (Confederation of German Sheep Breeding Associations, VDL; Federation of German Goat Breeders, BDZ) and the German Society for Animal Production (DGfZ), the BMEL is permanently following the situation caused by the Corona pandemic as well as trends in the changing overall conditions at global level, taking into account the recommendations of the WHO and authorities worldwide.
We can also learn lessons from the Corona pandemic in respect of animal husbandry, among other things. Therefore, we explicitly encourage you to submit contributions that refer to your experience with the current situation. We will keep you up to date on further developments through 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.
