In addition to the business and partnership meetings that make the Sommet de l'Elevage a key event for international cooperation in the livestock sector, two special moments gave this year's event, from our perspective, a very special flavour:
Mr. Joël MERCERON, Managing Director of the Institut de l'Elevage, was awarded the insignia of Knight of the Agriculture Merit Order by Jacques CHAZALET, President of the Sommet de l'Elevage, in recognition of his efforts to promote the development of French livestock farming over the past several decades.
Mrs. Stéphanie DAYDE-FONDA, breeder, shepherdess, ecologist, behaviorist and dog trainer, was honored with the rank of Knight in the National Merit Order. The insignia was presented to her by Philippe AME, Director of the BCTI, in recognition of distinguished merit in her mission of transmission.
Congratulations once again to the recipients!!
