Heritage livestock numbers are dwindling. Many livestock breeds are rare and at risk of becoming endangered, yet they offer many small farms a niche opportunity in raising and selling quality meats and animal products.
The Rodale Institute is offering a seminar on raising heritage pigs in a pasture-based production system taught by Dr. Hubert Karreman, who specializes in organic veterinary medicine. On May 31, Dr. Karreman will discuss the benefits of pastured heritage hogs and how they can be utilized on small farms. You can register at Rodale Institute.
