International Draft Animal Conference

For millenia, draft animals played a key role in the survival of many cultures. Even today, draft animals still secure the livelihood of millions of people around the globe. Be it in transportation, agriculture or forestry: draft animals can offer sustainable, ecofriendly and economically valuable ways of land-use. Nevertheless, there are a lot of challenges, be it the pressure of high profit markets or politics, in animal welfare, breeding and harnessing and the total number of draft animals is declining. In 2021, our international and virtual conference will seek to address these challenges. Experts from around the world will discuss the history, preservation, education and future of draft animals.
