Mühlengeez (dpa/mv) - Around 800 exhibitors from Germany and abroad will be showing agricultural technology at the Mecklenburg Agricultural Exhibition (Mela) from this Thursday, giving energy tips and providing insights into cooking studios. Until Sunday, visitors to the show in Mühlengeez near Güstrow (Rostock district) will also see around 1000 animals. Unlike in the previous year, there were no long queues at the entrance this time, as no proof of corona vaccination or testing - as was the case in 2021 - had to be presented.
MV Prime Minister Manuela Schwesig (SPD) was supposed to officially open the fair of the State Farmers' Association at the animal shows in the morning. Before Corona, the Mela had more than 60,000 visitors and, according to State Minister of Agriculture Till Backhaus (SPD), is the most important trade fair in north-eastern Germany. Current energy and cost problems in the industry with 50,000 employees as well as food security will also be discussed at specialist forums.
