Heritage Livestock Microgrants Awarded

The Livestock Conservancy awarded more than $22,000 in microgrants to 12 rare-breed farmers, ranchers, shepherds, and breed organizations across the country. “Small financial awards can make a big difference for heritage breeders,” said Dr. Alison Martin, Livestock Conservancy Executive Director. “These strategic investments were selected as excellent examples of livestock conservation in action across the United States by our panel of judges.” Profiles of the grant recipients, their projects, and the breeds they are saving from extinction are available online.
