MOTHER EARTH NEWS FAIRS: Featured Heritage Livestock Breeds (Video)

Tags: Mother Earth News Fair, heritage livestock breeds, The Livestock Conservancy

We had a great time seeing the beautiful heritage livestock breeds that came to our MOTHER EARTH NEWS FAIRS. From gentle llamas and stubborn pack goats to regal roosters and braying mules, we've had the chance to see (and pet, and play with) them all. With help from our friends at The Livestock Conservancy, we've combined some of our favorite pictures and video clips of heritage livestock breeds in this video slideshow.

 We'd like to give a special thanks to Jeannette Beranger from The Livestock Conservancy for her help compiling many of these photos.
