During the weekend around ascension day, we intend to meet again, this time in Gersfeld in Röhn. The theme will be "Animal Husbandry, where do we got to (Quo Vadis)?

We thought to approach it this way: We start with an introduction to history of animal husbandry, impacts and current trends. We can then look at some problems, possibly the impact of excessive application of dung and slurry, impacts on biodiversity and intensity of land use and look into alternatives - kepping sheep, eco-farming. Just in case, we can also organize a programme for kids.

Since Rhön is a bit remote, and we would like to organize visits in two groups, we rely on private cars. We hope to have abut 10 cars available, to be flexible.

Accommodation is at Gersfeld youth hostel,  – good value for (little) money, but with rather conventional facilities. For people who like to have it more cosy, the are hotels and B&B in the surroundings of Gersfeld.

We'll start on May 25th, at around 16:00 hours, and take our ways back on Sunday, after lunch. 

All are welcome, als non-members of Agrecol e.V. If you are interested, please contact info@agrecol.de. Registration by April 16th, please ask for a  programme and a link to doodle.
