The world’s largest indoor livestock exhibition, EuroTier, held 13-16 November 2018 in Hannover, Germany saw a strong British Livestock presence during the four-day show. Twenty UK companies from the animal breeding, genetics and export sectors joined together with the support of the Department of International Trade (DIT), the Agriculture & Horticulture Development Board (AHDB), British Livestock Genetics Consortium (BLG) and UK Technology for Agriculture & Genetics (UKTAG.

Held biennially, EuroTier boasts 150,000+ visitors and over 2,300 exhibitors – half of whom are international companies – and, as such, a strong UK presence at EuroTier allows British farming and breeding organisations to promote themselves on the global stage.

With both British Charollais & Lleyn sheep being exhibited, the British stand drew a large number of visitors and many useful enquiries for breeding animals and germplasm – not only from the EU 27 but also further afield from countries such as China, Russia, Mongolia, Turkey & Iran. With the number of Export Health Certificates steadily growing, thanks to the work of the UK Export Certification Partnership (UKECP), these enquiries help to facilitate trade with a ‘push-and-pull’ approach towards agreeing export protocols between the UK and other countries.
