European Young Breeders School (EYBS)
Created to teach young breeders how to judge, prepare their animals for shows, and market their genetics, teams from across Europe gathered in Battice, Belgium to participate in the European Young Breeders School.
The school has been created in 1999. It is aimed at young people from 13 to 25 years, and its main aim is to learn to the young breeders knowing their cattle better and, optimizing selection and preparing them for shows. It has become an annual opportunity since 2014 to send a Canadian team of six keen young leaders. Each year, the team is comprised of winners of provincial competitions and/or successful candidates determined through an interview process held within their region.
Congratulations to the 2016 EYBS Team!
