A Powerful Debate – Are We Licensing the Wrong Stallions?

"Quo vadis – Are we licensing the wrong stallions?" is the subject of an interesting debate that is excitedly awaited in Vechta. We cordially invite all interested media representatives and listeners to the Oldenburg Horse Center on October 11, 2011 at 7:00 p.m. The event will be held by the Akademie für Pferdemanagement 2011 (Academy of Horse Management 2011) which is organized by the Departments of Agriculture of the Georg-August University of Göttingen, Osnabrück College, as well as the University of Vechta. A highly significant subject for breeders will be illuminated and considered from very different angles. The discussion will be especially controversial because Oldenburg's Breeding Director, Dr. Wolfgang Schulze-Schleppinghoff, will present a new licensing model to the public for the first time.

Afterward, there will be a discussion with representatives from the German Breeding Verbands. Prominent guests such as Dr. Thomas Nissen, Breeding Director and General Manager of the Holstein Verband, Lars Gehrmann, Breeding Director and General Manager of the Trakehner Verband, Dr. Ludwig Christmann as envoy of the Hanoverian Verband, and Klaus Roeser, Manager of PST Paul Schockemöhle Marketing GmbH will be members of the expert panel during the evening. The auctioneer, Uwe Heckmann, will personally moderate the event.

The often passionate discussion concerning the stallion licensing system will be given a public stage with the most experienced professionals in Germany to illuminate the subject. Everyone interested in participating in the discussion or just listening is most welcome to follow this exciting evening, live in Vechta.

The presentation and discussion will be held in the German language. If you are interested in attending, please email Oldenburghorseweb@hotmail.com for a registration form. We hope to see you there!
