There will be bulls and two heifers by Heirs of Bernardio Píriz
Puebla de Alcocer celebrates the 88th edition of its Agricultural Fair from April 28 to May 1. The Badajoz Provincial Council, through the Rural Development and Sustainability Area, will be present at this event, collaborating and participating with a promotional stand and in the cattle auction on Sunday, May 1 at 11:30 a.m. in the main tent , carrying 30 merino lambs from the La Cocosa farm. They are distributed in 3 batches in total, made up of 10 heads, in which the starting price for each batch of 10 female merino sheep is 1,200 euros per batch and 120 for each head of cattle. Likewise, there will be bulls and two heifers by Heirs of Bernardio Píriz.
In the act of presentation of the appointment, which took place this Monday morning, Lorenzo Molina, deputy delegate of the Rural Development and Sustainability Area, Mariló Fernández, deputy mayor of Puebla de Alcocer, and the councilor of Culture and Sport, Félix Sánchez.
Congressman Lorenzo Molina, during his speech, enthusiastically indicated that “we are already in that new normality that allows us to resume the events and festivals that are scattered throughout our province.” He also added that “this fair is a key event for a meeting between farmers and ranchers, to expose and publicize the different productions in agriculture and livestock, as well as to publicize the potential that the municipality of Puebla de Alcocer has, generating wealth and employment both in the locality and in the region, avoiding depopulation”.
For her part, Mariló Fernández wanted to thank the Badajoz Provincial Council for its support, since without it it would be difficult to celebrate it. He also pointed out that “there is a lot of enthusiasm and enthusiasm to be able to resume the fair after the pandemic, in which it is reflected in the programming because there is great involvement on the part of citizens and associations to carry out different activities such as the exhibition of shearing, a children’s fishing contest and a zumba performance, among others”.
Finally, he has highlighted the three significant points for the realization of this celebration. The first turns out to be a commercial showcase, as many products from the region as from the municipalities; the second is to know the quality of the cattle as well as its improvements; and finally, the need to enjoy the new normality.
The Diputación will have a photo booth activity that will have been installed at the main entrance of the fairgrounds on Saturday 30 at 1:00 p.m., so that all visitors can take home a unique memory of their time at the fair, and the popular roast tasting of lamb that will be held in collaboration with Corderex on Sunday at 2:30 p.m. to promote the endogenous resources of the territory.
The Department of Sustainable Development of the Diputación seeks to maintain the pure Merino breed, with which it attends these events so that through auctions, farmers have options to acquire this line of sheep and thus improve their livestock herds. In addition, these types of fairs serve to publicize all the work carried out by the Provincial Council within this scope of execution at the La Cocosa R&D&I farm.
