EXPERT help and advice on how to get back into an export market
which has been closed to British cattle breeders for 17 years will
be on hand at a conference later this month.
Emergency Cattle Slaughter Rules Warning
The English Beef and Lamb Executive (EBLEX) and the British Livestock
Genetics Consortium (BLG) have got together to run a seminar for
breeders who want to get back into export markets in Europe where
live British cattle have been banned since 1989 because of BSE.
The seminar will be held at the British
Cattle Breeders Club annual
conference at Shrewsbury on Monday January 23 starting at 3pm.
The seminar will include news of a major initiative during 2006
to re-establish trade in breeding cattle between Britain and the
rest of Europe which will include a presence at a number of major
shows across the Continent.
Henry Lewis, BLG chairman, said: “We will have news of what
will be happening later this year and on topics such as the conditions
which will apply to animals for export.
“We want to help rebuild business in Europe. We know there
is a strong demand for our cattle.”
