This event will be carried out in collaboration with the European Federation of Animal Science (EAAP), Fibl Switzerland and the University of Padova, and it will cover a broad range of topics related to livestock farming in European mountain areas.
Unfavorable environmental conditions in mountain areas such as harsh climate, steepness, high altitude, and isolation of farms challenge livestock farming, affecting the success of production and landscape conservation.
