Live examples of both sheep and cattle breeds will be on display at the Polagra show in Poznan, Poland in September, at the Sommet de L'Elevage show in Cournon, France in October and at the Indagra show in Bucharest, Romania in November.

Groups which have joined together to help boost the UK's export markets are: the English Beef and Lamb Executive (EBLEX), the British Pig Executive (BPEX), Meat Promotion Wales (HCC), Quality Meat Scotland (QMS) and Livestock and Meat Commission or Northern Ireland (LMC).

Jean-Pierre Garnier, MLC Export Manager, said: "While France is traditionally a very important market for us, we are also concentrating on making sure the new Eastern European States know what we have to offer them.

"These shows are imperative for us as a means of increasing our exports and helping to find new and expanding markets for our home producers."
