Breeders may boycott local Agricultural Fairs

Local breeders and farmers from the Ribatejo region have threatened to boycott Horse and Agricultural Fairs this year as a protest to the Minister of Agriculture's policies to suspend aid funds and the introduction of new agro-environmental measures.

Should the Government not reverse its position, breeders and farmers will not support the local fairs in detriment to the local economy.

Various important Horse Fairs may be cancelled in lieu of this boycott.
