At every Sommet Show we have a wide choice of different farm or Agri / industrial visits

Farms visits

A number of farm visits will be organised during the SOMMET DE L'ELEVAGE to selected cattle, sheep and horses breeding farms and artificial insemination units in the region; these tours are intended primarily for international visitors and visitors from French overseas departments. These half-day group visits are free of charge and accompanied by a breeding expert and a guide-interpreter (English/Spanish/German).

Groups are taken to and from the farm location by bus from the exhibition grounds. Note that there are only a limited number of places available. If you wish to attend a tour, you must register in advance. To Register for your farm visits please contact:-
