BovINE, Europe's first beef farming innovation sharing network, invites all involved and interested in beef farming and sustainability to attend its final online meeting:

1 December 2022 - 09.30 to 12.30 (CET).

Presentations in English will be translated simultaneously into Dutch, Estonian, French, German, Italian, Polish, Portuguese and Spanish.

BovINE expert practitioners and academic partners from across nine European countries will present solutions collectively gathered across the last 3-years focused on driving and enhancing sustainability on beef farms. The solutions being presented build on good practices already being implemented on farms across Europe and research innovations that are ready to be put into practice.

The agenda is organised around the four over-arching BovINE themes – Animal Health & Welfare, Socio-economic Resilience, Production Efficiency & Meat Quality and Environmental Sustainability.

The BovINE online meeting is for beef farmers, technical and practical advisors, agricultural professionals, researchers and all involved in the European beef value chain.
