The largest livestock event in Europe, Sommet de l’Elevage, opens October 3rd

One of the world’s biggest agricultural events, Sommet de l’Elevage, is fast approaching! The largest livestock trade show in Europe will take place October 3 – 5, 2018 in Clermont-Ferrand, France, the heart of the largest beef-breeding area in Europe.

In a favorable economic context for the milk and beef cattle sectors, this 27th edition of the show is looking extremely promising: European and National breed championships will once again take place at the show (with Salers in the spotlight!), and visitors and foreign delegations from around the world are preparing their participation in our many farm industry events and the full program of conferences.

Sommet de l’Elevage 2018 will welcome 1,500+ exhibitorsfrom 32 countries (including Arrowquip and Moly Manufacturing from North America!) and 95,000+ professional visitors.

Already the world’s indisputable #1 show for beef cattle (with 750 animals in judging) and now a national event for milk cattle (550 animals present), plus a buoyant sheep participation (with 400 animals) and horses too (300 animals), Sommet de l’Elevage has clearly established itself as an exceptional showcase of French know-how in farm animal production and genetics.

International visitors will be warmly welcomed with free badges, access to the International Club, and services like interpreters, guided visits to the show, internet access, catering, and shuttle services to and from the show.

For more details about the show, as well as the full 2018 program of conferences and visits, please see our full press pack.
