Background

Small Game in Modern Agriculture Conference

The Danish Hunters´ Association held the second of two conferences on small game on 27-28 September. The conferences saw national and international experts presenting their professional knowledge and assessment of issues related to management of field game in modern agriculture, exploring the topic from both national and European perspectives with many partners involved.

The discussions were very timely with the CAP reform discussions within the EU. FACE provided the concluding intervention of the conference through a video presentation given by FACE’s Secretary-General Angus Middleton, adding an EU-level perspective to the conference.

The Danish Hunters´ Association presented a model for concrete action - a concrete management concept that can be used nationwide, and based on the successful experience of establishing and running small game management sites, that make a positive difference for partridges and hares. The Danish Minister of Agriculture and Food Mette Gjerskov, who attended the conference, expressed that the project sounds incredibly exciting.
