    British Livestock Is Poles Better!

BRITISH sheep and beef cattle caught the eyes of a stream of potential buyers on the British Livestock stand at the Polagra Show in Poland.

With the English Beef and Lamb Executive (EBLEX) one of the major sponsors of the stand, British livestock, in the shape of Limousin cattle, appeared on display for only the second time since a ban on live cattle exports from Britain was lifted earlier this year.

In all more than a score of British companies, including several major breed societies, joined forces on the stand to show off the best of British livestock and genetics.

Jean-Pierre Garnier, EBLEX Export Manager, said: "We were delighted at the high level of interest our area received.

"This was only the second time British cattle had been seen at a European show after an absence of 17 years. I believe prospects for future trade with Poland are extremely good."

EBLEX is an industry-funded organisation that acts to help the English beef and lamb industry boost its competitiveness and promote its products.

It aims are: to encourage better returns for the English beef and lamb industry, to stimulate a profitable demand for quality beef and lamb and to champion the development of a sustainable industry through improved profitability.
