Pat Foremen enjoying a heritage breeds meal"The Livestock Conservancy national conference isn't just about learning from fabulous workshops given by experts, it's about meeting like-minded people and forever friendships. It's about individual heroes taking action before it's too late—and saving endangered breeds from extinction. It's about preserving the genetics of true nutrition and satisfying taste of heritage breeds. It's about honoring, preserving and protecting the future for our entire planet." -- Patricia Foreman
