Denmark is famed for its agriculture, and with more pigs than people it is understandable why. However, few Danes nowadays have a close relationship with farming. Roskile Dyrskue, based in the same field as the famous Roskilde Festival and attracting around the same number of people, has become a connection between the countryside and the city. It gives young and old a chance to explore all elements of farming. “Every year, we have around 1,800 animals displayed, from cats to cows, most of whom you can get close to and touch and hear more about. We estimate that it takes around 16.5 hours to visit them all,” says Camilla Holck, press and communications manager, with a smile.
