The American Livestock Breeds Conservancy is a nonprofit membership organization working to save over 180 breeds of livestock and poultry from extinction. Founded in 1977, ALBC is the pioneer organization in the U.S. working to conserve historic breeds and genetic diversity in livestock. ALBC’s mission is to strengthen the future of agriculture through genetic conservation and the promotion of endangered breeds of livestock and poultry.
ALBC is a catalyst for rare breed conservation. ALBC uses research, education, outreach, marketing and promotion, and genetic rescues to help ensure the future of rare breed agriculture.
ALBC works directly with farmers to bridge the gap between conservation theory and on-farm practice. We provide educational materials, information, resources, training, and consultation to equip farmers with the tools necessary to successfully raise and market rare breeds of livestock and poultry.
