Agriculture still plays a major role in Kreis Viersen. This is especially true for vegetable, potato and cattle feed cultivation. Another important agricultural branch is animal breeding and animal husbandry, and there are several horse boarding stables and breeders in the regions.
One of our tasks is supporting animal farmers in developing their businesses, including purchasing and selling bred animals. We organise excursions and training and advise farmers on the direct sale of their products. We work with specialist networks such as Agrobusiness Niederrhein, the research network NRW agrar and the Landwirtschaftskammer NRW.
We cooperate with colleges and universities in the region and support young farmers.
