Our annual small livestock exhibition that traditionally takes place during the fourth weekend of October in the municipal halls in Merelbeke. In the meantime we are already ready for the 23rd edition, which also houses the provincial competitions of East Flanders this year. There were 1238 animals to admire before the inspection. This year, the students of the Horticultural School in Melle again contributed to the construction of the exhibition.
The Neerhof Werk van den Akker-Land van Aalst is a cultural association that is committed to the promotion of all farm animals ranging from chickens, bantams, fancy pigeons, park birds, waterfowl to rabbits and guinea pigs. She is also interested in a wide range of other pets
and in this sense it unites all lovers of farm animals in general and of the small breeds of livestock from the aforementioned groups in particular.
