The EGF2020 proceedings is almost ready and we will finalize editing it into an electric form. Therefore, your valuable scientific contribution will be published in any circumstances. The final decision on how we proceed with arrangements will be done in June.

Welcome to the 28th General meeting of EGF in 2020 that will be hosted by University of Helsinki in Helsinki Finland. The last General meeting in Finland was organised in Lahti in 1992 (14th General Meeting: Sustainable production from grassland). The 28th General meeting gives delegates the first hand opportunity to see and experience how today’s state-of-the-art practices in grassland and ruminant production are utilised in Finland to produce milk and beef products that have been ranked as one of the highest quality products in the world. The meeting is also the stage for you to represent and hear about the recent advances and novel approaches in grassland research.
