Organizers of the event: the National Festival of sheep breeders in Bulgaria Association, National Association of Milky Sheep in Bulgaria (NAMSB), in cooperation with the Ministry of Agriculture and Food of the Republic of Bulgaria. The place of the festival was not chosen by chance, since Veliko Tarnovo is a peculiar place at the center of the country, known for being a convenient destination from all parts of Bulgaria.
This year’s competition included a new section – “Paint…” in which participants had the opportunity to prove their talent in yet another category.
Over 120 exhibitors with 1,100 animals – sheep, goats, dogs and horses took part in the third edition of the National Festival of Sheep Breeders in Bulgaria.
There were over 40 sheep exhibitors – private farmers and scientific institutes dealing with sheep, for instance Institute of Stock Breeding Sciences of Kostinbrod, Institutes of Agriculture of Stara Zagora and Shoumen, Institute of Mountain Stock Breeding and Agriculture of Troyan, etc.
