SHEEP WORKING PARTY
Congratulations to Michèle Boudoin (FNSEA) who was re-elected as Chair during the meeting of the Working Party for Sheep on 15th June! Congratulations also to Sean Dennehy (IFA) for being re-elected as Vice-Chair and Raúl Muñiz Cimas (Cooperativas Agroalimentarias) for being elected as Vice-Chair! The main priorities for the Chair includes tackling the administrative simplification for breeders and the solutions to encourage the promotion of the product, as well as to increase sheep-meat self-sufficiency within the European Union and the defence of the sheep sector within the framework of free trade agreements. The challenges to be faced include the decrease of sheepmeat consumption in the EU, generation renewal and trade negotiations with third countries.
