« Reply #1 on: September 19, 2013, 05:37:31 AM »

The Livestock Conservancy is excited to announce the much anticipated schedule for this year’s National Conference in Cary, North Carolina, November 8-9, 2013. This year’s lineup of workshops and clinics includes something for everyone. Come learn from leaders and pioneers in rare breed conservation about integrating heritage livestock into a sustainable cycle of agriculture that includes seeds as well as breeds. Join members, partners, and friends as they share their insight on how to turn your rare breed passion into profit by identifying niche markets and targeting specific consumers, and how to add value to your business by including stories, history, and culture. If you attend one event this year, make it the National Conference!
