Review for The Livestock Conservancy, Pittsboro, NC, USA
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.
