The goal of Heritage Breeds Southwest is to protect domestic animal genetic diversity with an emphasis on breeds suited to arid lands.

  • To preserve genetic diversity of animal agricultural systems.
  • Educating children and adults with hands-on experience about farm animals.

  3. Bronze Turkeys
  4. Cochin Chickens

Future and present projects include:

  1. The Barnyard Project
