Sommet de l’élevage

Elisabeth Fosso - 16/10/15

Europe’s main livestock show took place in Clermont-Ferrand during three days. Along with the SPACE 2015, it is one of the main events in the French agricultural industry. From Wednesday 7th October to Friday 9th, 1300 exhibitors gathered to welcome 85,000 professionals as well as 4,000 foreigners. About 70 countries were represented including newcomers such as Greece, Hungary, New-Zealand and Australia. The Sommet de l’élevage is thus the second biggest agricultural event after the Paris Agricultural Show.

 

Even though Clermont-Ferrand is the cradle of the biggest cattle breed, cows were not allowed to attend the show due to outbreaks of blue tongue in the region. Only sheep and horses could be represented for sanitary reasons. Yet, the main objective remained trade and exports for farmers in a crisis context, and international visitors could still discover some French breeding farms.
