The autumn days from October 11th to 13th were marked by an active exchange of experiences in the management of valuable biotopes, where grazing is well combined with nature conservation. Together with stakeholders from Life-Subpannonic and Life-South, we embarked on a field trip to Hortobágy National Park.
The natural values and ecosystem services of Hortobágy were introduced to us by experienced environmentalist Zoltán Ecsedi from the Hortobágy Environmental Association. At the same time, we also visited several local farms. We discussed the characteristics of animal husbandry in Hortobágy, grazing methods, as well as the features of raising cattle breeds such as Black Angus, Magyar Szürke Marha, water buffaloes, and Hortobágy Racka sheep.
For the inspiring October days filled with creative discussions, we want to express our gratitude to the diverse range of participants, including farmers from the Levice to Kráľovský Chlmec, employees of the State protection of Narure of Slovak Republic, district offices, and the Forests of the Slovak Republic, as well as the mayors of municipalities!
