November 11- 12, 2011
Wichita, Kansas - Sedgwick County Zoo

Each year the American Livestock Breeds Conservancy (ALBC) hosts a national conference. This year the conference returns to Wichita, Kansas. We are excited to learn from the many members and rare breed producers in Kansas and the Midwest. Agricultural conferences are usually about the “how-to’s” of farming. ALBC’s conference covers the “how to’s,” but also explores the underlying themes of conservation and biodoversity.

This year’s two-day conference themed Taking Stock – Knowledge, Economics, and Rare Breeds will explore the many facets of rare breed conservation, from rare breed censusing, to animal husbandry, to product marketing. Rare breed conservation is an ever-winding path and many farmers are at different points along the conservation continuum. The ALBC conference will encourage farmers to “take stock” of their unique situations relative to conservation as a whole. A variety of programs will be offered, allowing farmers to learn from both their strengths and weaknesses to better their conservation efforts.

We hope to see each of you at this year’s conference! All conference sessions will take place at the Sedgwick County Zoo. Evening meals will take place at the Hilton Wichita Airport Executive Conference Center.
