Les éleveurs Charte ont visité le GAEC Leroy-Louvion à Avesnes-les-Aubert (59), adhérent de la Charte GD+ depuis 1999Established in 1999, the Charte GD + aims to create a nursery for bull dams in the best farms. Spread over the whole territory of the Selection Entreprise in proportion to the selection of cooperative involvement in the scheme of Genes Diffusion, farms engaged in the Charte GD + are offered the opportunity to access the most modern sires. Unlike closed nuclei, the Charte GD + also allows the introduction of the best families in Europe and North America via the import and installation of embryos. It also aims to bring together farmers driven by the same selection goals and the same passion.
