During the third full week of May each year, conservation organizations, associations, farmers, ranchers, shepherds, and consumers share stories about how heritage breeds have impacted their lives, environments, and local economies. This global conversation raises awareness about endangered livestock and poultry breeds listed on the Livestock Conservancy’s Conservation Priority List and about rare breeds around the world. You can share photos and plans for special activities on social media. The Livestock Conservancy also has brochures to help you tell the story of livestock and poultry conservation.
