Description: The hardy, multipurpose Dominique chickens that came to the New World with the Pilgrims & later traveled in pioneer saddlebags to help settle the West were once too numerous to count; by 1990 a mere 500 hens survived. This is but a single example of the diminishing diversity of farm animals: half of once-common livestock breeds are endangered, others are already extinct. The need to preserve farm animal diversity is increasingly urgent, says the author of this definitive book on endangered breeds of livestock & poultry. Farmyard animals may hold critical keys for our survival, Jan Dohner warns, & with each extinction, genetic traits of potentially vital importance to our agricultural future or to medical progress are forever lost. This comprehensive book features: * complete information on the history, characteristics, qualities, & traits of 138 endangered livestock breeds (goats, sheep, swine, cattle, horses, other equines) & 53 poultry breeds (chickens, turkeys, ducks, geese) * where these breeds may be seen today * the degree of rarity of each breed in the United States, United Kingdom, & Canada * information on feral livestock populations * 160 color photographs & over 80 black & white photos & historical illustrations
