European Network for interactive and innovative knowledge exchange on animal health and nutrition between the sheep industry actors and stakeholders

Project description

Knowledge exchange to keep Europe’s sheep sector sustainable

Sheep meat and milk production are important farm enterprises in Europe and neighbouring countries. Despite a 50 % decline in the sheep sector since 2000, Europe is still home to 85 million sheep on 830 000 farms. Efforts to increase productivity sustainably are high on the EU agenda. The EU-funded EuroSheep project is creating a self-sustained EU/international network on 'sheep profitability through health and nutrition'. It will facilitate knowledge exchange among diverse stakeholders and disseminate best practices. The project will also bring together experts for a transdisciplinary approach to sheep production, taking into consideration aspects related to animal health and nutrition, grassland management, precision livestock farming, breeding and genetics, as well as sociology and economics.
