The Livestock Conservancy, as a national nonprofit membership organization, plays an important role in educating the public about heritage livestock breeds on both a national and international scale. The organization and its mission are gaining wider recognition. However, there is still a lot of work to be done to convey the importance of conserving the more than 150 breeds of heritage livestock and poultry.
Individuals, businesses, and other organizations can help spread the word by referencing the Conservancy online, at events, and anywhere there may be an interest in heritage breed conservation. Please consider sharing our information below.
Link to our Website and Update Links
Consider adding a link to The Livestock Conservancy’s website on your own site. Please link to our homepage: www.livestockconservancy.org.
If you’re skilled at updating Wikipedia, we have many links on individual breed pages that need updated, plus some breed pages may not reference us – please add a blurb about us if so.
