1- In Brazil
Fert, Ircod Alsace and the BTPL have accompanied the development of the dairy sector in the South-West of the State of Paraná from 1991 to 2011 by promoting the emergence, consolidation and development, until its autonomy, of a professional organization of technical and economic services to dairy farmers: Unileite.
This Franco-Brazilian cooperation was based on numerous missions of Alsatian actors in Paranà and the reception of Brazilian breeders and technicians in France.
The links continue beyond the cooperation action; thus, Eduardo Kehrig, Unileite veterinarian, carried out in April 2018 a 3-week training course in Alsace organized by the BTPL. Together with Marc Wittersheim, deputy director of the BTPL, he presented the various services offered by Unileite to breeders and the functioning of the association.
