Heritage Cows

Heritage animals not only give us a connection to the past but a link to a healthy future.

Breeds that were once popular and developed to function well under a variety of conditions have gradually become replaced by modern breeds that function in only specific conditions. Although this husbandry animal model has allowed modern agriculture to achieve significant production efficiencies, it also comes with a cost. That cost includes a lack of genetic diversity, such that many modern breeds are ill equipped to function outside of a very specialized management. This management has placed a significant toll on the environment of which our whole planet depends.
