Regional task force maps corona effects
How hard does the corona crisis cut in and what should we – Limburg – learn from this? The province of Limburg has set up a task force to answer these questions. This task force consists of 10 experts from different sectors. Such as business, culture, sports and medical care. Rector Magnificus of Maastricht University Rianne Letschert leads the club. What are they going to do? We discuss it with her in L1mburg Central.
Why are farmers angry about animal feed?
It is a recurring scene: angry farmers blocking motorways and driveways and exits. This has also been the case in recent days, including in Ittervoort. This time because of a new discussion: the protein content in animal feed. To reduce nitrogen emissions, the minister wants less protein in the feed. Farmers say that this has no effect and is even harmful to the cows.
