Successful international Grassland Days in Saint-Hilaire-en-Woëvre (October 2016)
Grassland was at the heart of economic issues for the 10th International Days in France : feed autonomy, new approaches of grazing, and technological innovations can improve farms’ economic performance.

With more than 1000 participants on the experimental farm of Saint-Hilaire-en-Woëvre (Grand-Est Region), the clearly-defined cross-border dimension of the region has been re-affirmed.
The International Grassland Days are information and dissemination days both for farmers and advisors. They are the result of a close collaboration between Belgium, Germany, Luxembourg, and France. They aim at sharing trans-national information and knowledge, and at creating a link between farmers, general public and scientists.
The event provided an opportunity to reaffirm the importance of cross-border cooperation for the new enlarged area of Alsace Champagne-Ardenne Lorraine.
