The first multilingual Livestock protection conference as part of the 5 year project LIFEstockProtect.

You will learn from Italian livestock owners about their experience working together with volunteers to protect their livestock as part of the Pasturs project. From Bavaria you will hear the personal report of a former state advisor and long-time managing director of the sheep farmers’ association on the challenges of introducing livestock protection measures. From Austria you will hear from local sheep owners concerning livestock protection in the alps.
