Save the date! The 2018 Heritage Livestock Conference will be just outside of Indianapolis, Indiana the second weekend in November. The conference will be on the grounds of the museum park which has meeting rooms as well as plenty of outdoor space with interactive exhibits and heritage breed livestock! As always the conference will have pre-conference clinics on Friday and Saturday morning classroom sessions but on Saturday afternoon you'll head back outdoors (bring your warm clothes!) to join in interactive experiences and live-animal sessions.

Possible clinics and talks will include:

  • Low-stress animal handling
  • Oxen - training, driving and caring for oxen
  • Cattle 101
  • Show stock vs conservation stock
  • Fabrication 
  • Value added charcuterie
  • Rotational grazing
  • Dairying
  • Poultry selection
  • Agritourism
  • Urban agriculture

And much more!


"The Heritage Livestock Conference is great for those interested in conserving and promoting endangered breeds of livestock and poultry who wish to learn more about husbandry, conservation breeding, marketing, value-added products, and recent research of rare breeds. The conference allows attendees to network with others and participate in training to become future breed stewards, promoters, and ambassadors."  -- R. Walker
