Export Delegation to the Czech Republic in livestock production, 30 May - 1 June 2022

The Danish Embassy in Prague and Danish Agriculture & Food Council (DAFC) hereby invite you to a three-day joint export promotion of Danish livestock and related technologies (pigs and cows).

The programme includes visits to large Czech farms, seminars and high-level meetings with decision makers.

Registration no later than 2nd of May 2022

COUNTRY INFORMATION
The country is characterised by large farms covering a significant amount of land and farms producing a variety of livestock and crops as part of a single holding.

In the Czech Republic around 10% of farms cover 70% of land and the trend of smaller farms joining larger cooperatives is continuing. 

During the trip we will visit the primary agricultural producing regions.

The Czech Republic is continually looking to enhance the efficiency of its agricultural sectors and production capacity. There is a great interest in the latest technologies and farming techniques. Danish technologies and solutions are very well received here and methods of enhancing efficiency and Danish key competences fit well to the market. 

There is an increasing focus on:

  • self-sufficiency and local production 
  • efficiency and sustainability 
  • mechanised production techniques 
  • the latest technologies, including digital solutions 

We will visit producers of pigs and cows (dairy), many of whom also have significant crop production.

WHAT YOU GET

  • Full business program including visits to production sites including meeting with their management
  • Market knowledge and expanded networks
  • Networking opportunities and sampling of the local culture
