At its meeting on June 24, the Hanoverian board appointed Ulrich Hahne as the new breeding manager. The former association spokesman for young breeders has been the director of the studbook department since 2001, and deputy breeding manager since 2006, so has already performed numerous tasks within breeding management.
Ulrich Hahne comes from a breeding family near Verden and was, himself, a young breeder. After completing his agricultural training, he studied agricultural sciences in Kiel with a focus on animal breeding, graduating as an agricultural engineer. During his studies, he became a spokesman for the young breeders of the Hannoveraner Verband. The 46-year-old is married and has three children. "The breeding management of the Hannoveraner Verband is a very special task, which I am looking forward to and have respect for. I believe that I have always had a good contact with our breeders and hope that I can maintain and intensify this contact."
Commenting on the appointment, president of the Hannoveraner Verband, Hans-Henning von der Decken said; "The appointment of a new breeding director is another mosaic stone on the way to the future. We are happy to have won Ulrich Hahne for this position. He knows the association, its structures, and its environment like hardly anyone else. He is technically very competent and I also believe that he is humanly able to bring us forward in the current situation."
