SPACE is held in Brittany, at the heart of one of Europe's most important livestock areas. We are inviting you to take advantage of this resource with visits to livestock farms and agri-industrial units in our region.
For additional information or registration to one of these visits, please contact Amandine LEROUX: firstname.lastname@example.org
This year, some of these visits will highlight the issue of farm health control by the farmer, in line with the common thread 'Health excellence, a passport for the future!'.
