Invites Industry To Comment On Breeding Programme
invitations have been sent out to Breed Societies and Stud Books,
individual breeders, trainers, elite riders and other interested
parties to an Open Meeting, where the initial work of the BEF Breeding
Development Programme Plan will be presented and discussed.
Suggett, BEF Consultant Director of Breeding said; "Thanks
to the Breeding Development Programme Plan's seven working groups'
excellent preparatory progress we now have a good basis for useful
discussion and the BEF would like to widen the debate and seek the
views of breed societies, stud books and ndividual breeders. Our
committee and working groups endeavour to represent the industry's
views, but it is vital that all our colleagues in the breeding community
can participate in this process. Our aim is to circulate information
on the BEF Breeding Programme as widely as possible amongst the
British Breeding Industry, and give
everyone the opportunity to participate in the plans if they wish."
meeting will be Chaired by Richard Meade OBE on the morning of Friday
14 February 2003 in the Warwick Suite at the National Agricultural
Centre. An overview by Graham Suggett and a situation report from
each of the working group chairmen will be followed by an open forum
to collect and discuss views.
