Eblex puts focus on Russia at show

At an international livestock industries show, Eblex particularly targeted the interest of Russian breeders and importers.

More than 70,000 visitors attended the Eurotier livestock exhibition in Hanover, Germany, where thousands of feed, veterinary products and items of equipment were showcased.

In conjunction with UK Trade and Investment (UKTI), Eblex shone a light on the Hereford, Longhorn and Highland cattle breeds, as well as the Texel, Suffolk and Border Leicester sheep varieties.

Eblex export manager Jean-Pierre Garnier said: “Eurotier is the main show in the livestock world and interest from foreign breeders and importers was high, particularly those from Russia.
“Given our large livestock sector, genetic resources, technical and export capability, we needed to present a strong image of our industry and Eurotier provided the ideal platform to do so. In particular, we certainly have a role to play in supplying the world with beef and sheep genetics, as we have done in the past.”
