The staff at the American Livestock Breeds Conservancy wishes each of you a happy Thanksgiving. We hope your holiday is filled with family, joy, and relaxation.
There has been a lot of media buzz about Heritage Turkeys this holiday season. ALBC is excited to see growing consumer interest in saving rare breeds. By putting them back on the American dinner table, we can increase their population numbers and ensure genetic diversity and security for our agricultural food system.
In October as part of ALBC'S Master Breeder program, staff member Jeannette Beranger traveled to Kansas to do a walk-through of Frank Reese's flocks. Frank is the owner and operator of Good Shepherd Poultry Ranch and he's a notable heritage poultry breeder.
During her tour, Jeannette tried out her "turkey whispering" skills. And the verdict - see for yourself! (These are Bronze turkeys.)
