We've learned a lot from The Livestock Conservancy over the years.
They are full of much needed information to help save our heritage breeds.
The Livestock Conservancy has been one of my favorite non-profits - and critical resource for my farm. I reference the information on the website often as we make decisions on breeds of animals - we've really grown our farm based on the information available from the Livestock Conservancy. It's an essential resource for farmers, ranchers and also has fantastic information for general education on rare breeds and why their genetics are important.
The Livestock Conservancy does an amazing job raising awareness about our endangered breeds and thanks to their work, we've never lost a breed on their list to extinction. Great website full of information about the breeds and they hold informative workshops. One of my favorite charities!
I'm proud to be a member and supporter of this incredible organization. We must protect genetic diversity to ensure the future of agriculture.
This is a great orginaztion. Ive been a member for 15 years. Without the Livestock Conservancy as a umbrella organization helping the diffrent breeds registries and raising awareness many of these breeds would be gone. I raise several listed breeds and it's great to have a organization that is so good at disseminating information.
I've kept a list of heritage breed animals I would like to raise one day in my back pocket since I was twelve. That was nearly 20 years ago now. My reasons for wanting to work with heritage animals have deepened from a general sense of knowing this was what I wanted in life to now being able to speak knowledgeably about genetic diversity, the hardiness of landraces and pre-industrial breeds, hybrid vigor, and also the specific characteristics of many breeds of livestock important to the history of the United States. What has never changed is that the Livestock Conservancy has always been my first, best source of information and inspiration.
I've learned so much from The Livestock Conservancy. They always answer my questions right away & give great information. The are also a great source for finding breeders!!!
I've been a supporter of this organization since its founding. It consists of knowledgeable and wise people doing essential work--that most people don't even realize needs to be done--with perseverance and creativity. I'm a member/supporter and former board member, and a professional with expertise in the field.
I was considering raising sheep, and The Livestock Conservancy’s website and information led me to doing far more - raising a critically endangered and all around amazing breed.
This non-profit has made me aware of many heritage breeds which are so important to all of us. I refer frequently to their educational materials and have noticed many others share their information in response to questions raised on numerous forums. Thank you to those who have dedicated themselves to this important cause. You are very much appreciated by many!
The staff of the Livestock Conservancy are truly dedicated to the organization's mission. It is through their deep knowledge and dedication that so much can be accomplished with their resources. My experiences with the staff and the public resources available on their website and in their publications continue to reinforce my belief in the value of supporting the Livestock Conservancy.
The Livestock Conservancy serves a need that most people don't even know exists or that it is so vital. That need is preserving genetic diversity of farm animals. In addition the organization promotes responsible and humane animal husbandry and sustainable agriculture, and assists in promoting farm products.
Wonderful for promoting rare breeds. Great outreach program to underserved populations. Educational materials are up-to-date and applicable to modern practice.
The Livestock Conservancy is great. I was raising pigs but then switched to raising Mulefoot Pigs after reading about them and how they are critical on the list. Some of the best pigs Ive had. Next year I am going to start raising and breeding Saxony ducks for the same reason . Keep up the good work!
I just wanted chickens and eggs. The Livestock Conservancy helped me to decide what kind of chickens I needed for my area and with what I wanted. Now I am a breeder of heritage breeds. Without the Conservancy, I would have never known there was a need. I couldn't be more happier with my selections. I got my eggs and I'm preserving a breed.
I'm a small farmer who depends on the Conservancy to help me with information about conservation breeding, where to find others in my breed, and marketing to make raising heritage breed livestock viable. Their tireless work is preserving valuable genetic heritage for generations to come.
The Galiceños of Suwannee Ranch breeds and promotes a very rare breed of horse, the Galiceño. The Livestock Conservancy has been extraordinary in their research of this breed, determining its unique place in the horse world, and ultimately recognizing the breed as “Critically Endangered.” I fully support the concept of preserving Heritage Breeds for their history and the importance of preserving genetic diversity in Livestock.
I absolutely love this organization! They stand for and represent everything I believe in with livestock. They educate, promote endangered breeds, and provide training to future generations of farmers. Thank you for all you do Livestock Conservancy.
My small family farm raises a variety of heritage breeds. The Livestock Conservancy is a great organization, I get so much education from their work as well as inspiration that I too can be a part of helping endangered breeds of livestock survive. I'm proud to be a member.
The Livestock Conservancy helped us decide which breeds to help conserve and has done the genetic work to differentiate related breeds of horses, cattle, and sheep brought to North America by the Spaniards.
We have "devolved" so far away from healthy hardy farm animals and the raising of them which in turn affects our food chain and our planet. The Livestock Conservancy needs all the support it can get to keep up it's great work and to grow large spread.
