The Japan Goat Network held the 15th Japan Goat Summit in Shobara City, Hiroshima on October 11-13, 2013. The Summit was entitled “Expansion of Goat Production for 6th Industrialization.” A total of 340 participants were present even though the location was 2.5 hrs away from the Hiroshima station.
Recently, people engaged in primary industries such as fishing and farming have started processing and marketing their products to improve income by adding value to the commodities, which they call “the 6th industrialization.”
The annual Summit this year introduced people from the 6th industry who cooperate with related enterprises in adjacent areas. Their activities include “education and rural development” and “activation of rural area” through goats and goat products. They are also trying to co-exist with beautiful natural environments and wild animals.
