Special focus: Limousin National Competition

For the 1st time, a national competition of a beef breed is organised in the West of France! The organization of the National Limousin during SPACE 1991 can be explained thanks to the results, the reputation of the breed but also thanks to the development of beef production. 

Animals traveled made their trip up to Rennes... by train! The 350 animals reached safely the railway stations and the exhibition. A successful first as well for animals than for the train company!
