EBLEX Highlights Genetics Work to Dominican Republic Delegation

20 August 2014

UK - A group of industry professionals from the Dominican Republic have been given an insight into beef and lamb production and livestock genetics during a visit to the UK hosted by EBLEX.

The week-long visit included farm visits to look at different production systems and a trip to the Sheep Event, at the Three Counties Showground, which included a tour of the EBLEX stand.

Delegates were also given a number of presentations by the EBLEX team during a visit to Stoneleigh, including EBLEX’s export work, breeding and production systems and an overview of the Quality Standard Mark (QSM). Examples of EBLEX export marketing activities were also outlined.

Susana Morris, EBLEX export manager, said: “The visit from the Dominican Republic delegation was very successful and provided a valuable first-hand look at a wide spectrum of work relating to our beef and sheep meat production.

“They were particularly interested in the field of genetics, an area in which EBLEX has a vast amount of expertise, and we were delighted to be able to share our knowledge in this area.”
