Interbev sheep

Interbev Ovins

Interbev is the National Interprofessional Association for Livestock and Meat. Its role is to defend and valorize the mutual interests of stock-breeding and industrial, speciality tradework and commercial activities in this sector. Interbev is composed of 13 National Professional Organizations representing various professions in the economic sector of livestock and meat production: stock-breeders, livestock dealers, slaughterhouse operations, wholesalers, industrial producers and distributors. The Association is thus a reflection of what all these professionals want for the consumer: healthy, quality products that are identifiable every step of the way. It is also the Association’s task to understand and communicate on the issues and changes concerning this sector, which is among the most important economic activities in France. Interbev sheep is one of the three specialized Interbev sections and is dedicated to developing and promoting the mutton sector.

Olympic Games for Young Shepherds!

Interbev Sheep is organizing a communications action event to lend more dynamism to the image of sheep-breeders and develop a European network for training and setting up business in sheep-breeding. The “Olympics for Young Shepherds” will provide the opportunity for young people, between 16 and 25 years old, who are in agricultural education to compete in practical and theoretical trials in sheep-raising and handling.

In 2009 for their fourth meeting, the Olympics will take up the European Challenge: on the 22nd of February at the Salon International de l’Agriculture, Porte de Versailles in Paris, the three best young French shepherds ( http://ovinpiades.hautetfort.com) will compete for a European First Prize with candidates from Great Britain, Spain, Ireland and The Netherlands.
