Just concluded our two-week joint EMABG Welcome Course and Summer School held online at BOKU. We were so happy to reunite with EMABG 2019 students and equally happy to meet the EMABG 2020 intake.

The second part of recording for the virtual excursion was equally exciting. We visited the beautiful region of Eastern Styria and got insights into milk testing, cow and sheep breeding and artificial insemination.
