Dear friends and colleagues, dear Simmental-Fleckvieh breeders!

 

 

 

It is pleasure and a big honor for the Czech Republic, for all our breeders to host the ESF Council Meeting in conjunction with the meeting of the working group of harmonization of the type classification and the XIV. National show “Day of the Czech Fleckvieh”.

The combination of the events is completely in line with the EVF/WSFF decision: to work more efficiently and combine important national events with the chance to meet the people from many other countries.

I believe, the region of the meeting is a place familiar to the majority of the Fleckvieh breeders around the Europe, hopefully around the globe: the capital of the Fleckvieh breed in the Czech Republic – Radesinska Svratka. A village located in the center of the Vysocina Region. The name of the Vysocina Region derives from the name of the Ceskomoravska vrchovina (Bohemian-Moravian Highlands), a hilly, undulating countryside situated between the two historical lands of the Czech Republic with many UNESCO sites. Region, where the highest number of cattle is registered and a place you can meet the modern and advanced agriculture.

Let’s celebrate the very special day of the Czech Fleckvieh breeders together and enjoy the traditional hospitality of the Czech people.

 

Dear EVF friends from all over the Europe, we would like to invite you warmly to the ESF Council Meeting 2018. Discover the Czech Republic: its culture, agriculture, history and present. Find out unexpected aspects of the Czech Republic; a country in the very heart of Europe.

 

 

We look forward to meeting you in the Czech Republic!

 

Yours sincerely

 

 

Dr. Josef Kučera

ESF President

Hugo Pedersen, Vingegard Simmental, Denmark has passed away on June 26th, 2017.

Hugo was one of the pioneers in Danish breeding of Beef Simmental. He was also one of the first in Europe to see the possibilies in polled Simmentals.

People from many countries found their way to Vingegaard, and quite a few of them brought genetics back home, whether it was livestock, embryos or semen, so the breeding jop mady by Hugo Pedersen has influenced on livestock in most of Europe.

Hugo was well known and highly respected in Denmark as well as internationally and he will be missed.

We will all remember him as a dedicated breeder, a good colleague and a true gentlemen.

May he rest in peace!
