Livestock breeders and farmers get together at the Grande Halle d’Auvergne
From 2 to 4 October 2019, some 2,000 animals will be presented at the Sommet de l'Élevage at the Grande Halle d’Auvergne in Clermont-Ferrand.
As one of the world's leading livestock breeding shows, the event will bring together a total of 1,560 exhibitors, including 340 international exhibitors from 38 different countries.
West Africa will be the special guest at this year's show. Several stands promoting Africa will be set up in the reception hall and an Africa Forum will be held on Thursday 3 October at the Centre de Conférences de la Grande Halle d’Auvergne.
This major European livestock show will have several highlights, such as the French national competitions for the Blonde d'Aquitaine and the Ile-de-France breeds, and the 20th Fermiers D'Or (Golden farmers) competition, featuring some 316 products.

For the first time, the Sommet de l'Élevage will include an area devoted entirely to agricultural start-ups. They will be presenting their technological innovations for "the future of farming", such as connected objects, weather sensors, connected collars, animal-well-being sensors, and more.
