Is a Heritage Breeds Enterprise Right for you?
February 11, 2012 1PM-3PM
Watauga Cooperative Extension Boone, NC

Join BRWIA and American Livestock Breed Conservancy for a workshop that will help you to determine whether heritage livestock may be a fit for your farm enterprise.

Heritage breeds have great potential on small farms and in niche markets. In this workshop you will learn the definition of Heritage, the basics of heritage breed husbandry, why these breeds are so appealing in niche markets, and the planning process for deciding if heritage animals are right for you and your farm. A panel of local farmers will discuss how heritage breeds fit in on their farms.

The American Livestock Breeds Conservancy, based in Pittsboro, North Carolina, has 35 years of experience conserving and promoting heritage livestock. Our mission is to provide support and education to farmers to help make heritage breeds an economical and sustainable option for farmers.
