What is The Livestock Conservancy?

The Livestock Conservancy is a nonprofit organized started in 1977 to “protect endangered livestock and poultry breeds from extinction.”

“The Livestock Conservancy works with farmers and ranchers, chefs, historians, consumers, and others across the nation to protect genetic diversity in agriculture. Just like there are heirloom seeds that need saving, the Conservancy works to protect Heritage breeds – for the security of our agricultural system.”

What’s a Heritage Breed?

“The Livestock Conservancy developed the term “Heritage breed” to help breeders of historic and endangered breeds of livestock market their animals.”

For more information about how they developed the term and to see the official Heritage breed definitions, visit their Heritage Breeds page.
