PUBLIC TALK ABOUT RARE BREEDS CANADA & DOON MUSEUM UPDATE

The SOUTH DUMFRIES HISTORICAL SOCIETY
PRESENTS A PUBLIC TALK BY:

AMY BRADLEY
Agricultural Specialist at Doon Heritage Crossroads

Rare Breeds Canada is a non-profit, national organization that promotes the use of rare and heritage breeds of livestock and poultry. The group’s mission is to make Canadians more aware of their agricultural heritage and involve them in conserving endangered breeds of farm livestock. Currently Rare Breeds Canada lists over 100 breeds of livestock and poultry as endangered, critical or rare. The need to save these breeds is based on the genetic diversity and characteristics that they possess, as well as the unique story in agricultural history that these breeds hold.

Covered in this talk will be what criteria are used to determine if a breed is rare or not, what breeds are in the most need of help currently and how people can get involved.

Plus: An update on the construction of the new Regional History Museum at Doon Heritage Crossroads.

SATURDAY, MARCH 28th, 2009
at the ST. GEORGE FIRE HALL (72 MAIN STREET NORTH)
2:30 PM START – FREE ADMISSION – ALL WELCOME

This event will also feature the business of our Annual General Meeting.
