Survey of 3,000 farmers in six countries identifies positive trends - Bioenergy Center at Agritechnica
13 – 17 November - HANOVER
DLG, the organiser of Agritechnica, has published the results of its 2006 Trendmonitor Survey of nearly 3,000 farmers in six European countries. The findings revealed marked differences in the type of bioenergy sources currently being used by farmers in individual countries and also their preferences for, and specific plans to adopt, bioenergy sources for future energy generation. At Agritechnica, the world’s number one exhibition for agricultural machinery, 14-17 November 2007, bioenergy will be a key feature.
The countries surveyed: Czech Republic, France, Germany, Hungary, Poland and the UK. Farmers were asked to evaluate eleven different bioenergy sources in terms of their potential future contribution to their farming business and asked to detail any concerns.

The new Regulation on animal welfare in transport entered into force on 5 January 2007. This legislation aims to reduce the stress and harm that animals can experience during land and sea journeys.

Un hombre entró a un bar y se sentó en la barra, junto a una mujer. Él le inició la conversación diciéndole:
- Hoy es un día especial para mí: estoy celebrando.
- ¡Qué coincidencia!, - dijo la mujer, - yo también estoy celebrando.
Ambos levantaron sus copas y las entrechocaron, y ella le preguntó,
- ¿Y se puede saber qué estás celebrando?
- Tengo una granja avícola muy importante, - contestó el hombre -. Durante años mis gallinas eran infértiles, pero hoy en día, finalmente, son fértiles.
- ¡Qué coincidencia!, - dijo la mujer.- Mi esposo y yo hemos estado tratando de tener un bebé. Hoy día, ¡mi ginecólogo me ha dicho que estoy embarazada!
¿Cómo hiciste para que tus gallinas se volvieran fértiles?,- preguntó ella.
- Cambié de macho, - contestó el hombre.
- ¡Qué coincidencia! - dijo ella.
