Obviously Franche Comté and Aveyron will be well represented, but cows from different French regions will show how the breed has grown throughout France. Animals from Germany and Austria, the two countries where the breed is in the majority, are expected.
Prior to the sale, a breed event organised by the group Evolution will take place in the main ring. Different themes will be addressed through livestock presentations, personal accounts from farmers and speeches by specialists, etc.
Wednesday morning will be devoted to the Normande breed with an inter-regional competition and breeding line presentation, followed by the Pie Rouge competition.
The day will end with the multi-breed auction. At 16.30, genotyped animals of 8 different breeds will be offered for sale with, in particular for the Charolais breed, young males.
