ALBC Member Logo Unveiled

After years of requests from members, on November 14, 2009, at the Annual Members’ Meeting, the American Livestock Breeds Conservancy officially unveiled a member logo for the organization. A crowd of over 100 people looked on as ALBC staff members revealed t-shirts and other merchandise displaying the new logo. Now that the holidays have past, ALBC is excited to share the new member logo with the world.

A Little History:

In 1993, when the American Minor Breeds Conservancy changed its name to the American Livestock Breeds Conservancy (ALBC), David Ashton and Company of Baltimore, Maryland, redesigned the ALBC’s logo into the exquisite image that is now a hallmark for ALBC's work. The new member logo is an adaptation of the main ALBC logo, but provides simpler lines and images for ease of reproduction. Because rabbits were recently added to the ALBC Conservation Priority List in 2005, this species has been added into the member logo to allow rabbit enthusiasts a “seat at the table.”

How to Use the Logo:
The member logo may be used by ALBC members in good standing to show support and association with the organization. The logo may be used in connection with a member’s or organization’s business and marketing materials including, but not limited to: stationery, letterhead, business cards, print ads, brochures, flyers, and signage. The logo may also be placed on a member’s website as a link to the ALBC website homepage ( ALBC has made a number of member products such as t-shirts, hats, bumper stickers, and more available through its online store located at

ALBC is very excited to be offering an additional way for members to support the organization and share their ALBC pride with others. The logo is also an added-value of ALBC membership since it will only be provided for member use.

To Access the Logo:
Members wishing to use the member logo may request high-resolution copies of the logo from or by calling (919) 542-5704. To use the logo, each member must sign a Member Logo Agreement. The agreement outlines how the logo can and should be used. Black and White and Reverse versions of the logo are available.

Best Wishes for the New Year!
