Eurac Research Centre, Italy
From the 20th to the 22th of June 2018, the Free University of Bolzano and Eurac Research Center will organise the first symposium focused on mountain livestock farming.
This event will be carried out in collaboration with the European Federation of Animal Science (EAAP), Fibl Switzerland and the University of Padova, and it will cover a broad range of topics related to livestock farming in European mountain areas.
Unfavorable environmental conditions in mountain areas such as harsh climate, steepness, high altitude, and isolation of farms challenge livestock farming, affecting the success of production and landscape conservation. This symposium makes possible the exchange of knowledge between participants from different regions across Europe, as well as the promotion of innovation.
