Ignacio Caraballo, Director of Promotion and Events at the fairgrounds, told the press that Fiagrop 2019 will have the participation of reference producers from all territories, both state-owned companies and agricultural cooperatives, for which it is now a challenge to ensure a sustainable animal feed.
The appointment includes a scientific-technical program of conferences and workshops, in addition to the accomplishment of clinics, rounds of businesses, the great final of the National Championship of Rodeo and Coleo, as well as the International Meeting with cowboys of Mexico, Costa Rica, Panama, Nicaragua and Cuba.
Until Sunday 24 at the Rancho Boyeros fairgrounds, its traditional headquarters, more than 2,150 dairy cattle, buffaloes, equines, sheep, goats, pigs, rabbits and birds will be exhibited by 85 exhibitors belonging to companies and cooperatives throughout the country.
In the opinion of Gustavo Rodríguez Rollero, Minister of Agriculture, every year Fiagrop matures and perfects itself and on this occasion it has been tried to be not only an expository appointment, but also for business, exchanges and promotion, and thus to concretize in the productive entities the policies destined to the recovery of bovine livestock.
