Rare Breed Survival Trust

Rare Breed Survival Trust

RBST is the only charity dedicated to the conservation and development of the UKs native breeds of farm livestock and equines, with a focus on those breeds that are listed as rare.
These breeds represent not only a rich and varied heritage, they are also a vital genetic resource with a role to play in the future of British agriculture.
Our aim is to secure the diversity of our livestock breeds and ensure their viability in the modern farming world. The farm animal genetic resources represented by these breeds can help farmers meet the challenges of sustainable farming in an era of climate change, increasing cost pressures and growing world populations.
