Sommet de l’Elevage is Europe’s leading livestock show. In 2016, Sommet welcomed 1,428 exhibitors from 32 countries and 86,500 visitors as well as 2,000 animals.

The 2017 show in Clermont-Ferrand, France, will showcase the latest innovations in products and services for agriculture, livestock production, and animal health and genetics, as well as hosting best of breed competitions, conferences, and tours of farms and other agricultural facilities.
