As an extra treat, on 14th and 21st September, we’ll be welcoming Tom Blunt from the Rare Breed Survival Trust who will be giving some very interesting talks!
Visitors to Odds Farm Park will be interested to learn that, founded in 1973, The Rare Breeds Survival Trust (RBST) is a conservation charity whose aim is to secure the future of rare and native breeds of farm livestock in the United Kingdom. Every year they collect data from breed societies and use the number of animals registered in a year to estimate the total number of breeding females. From this they produce their annual Watchlist.
Odds Farm Park is proud to be a registered Rare Breeds Farm Park. Some of our animals are as rare at the Giant Panda or Sumatran Tiger, so we keep log books of all our rare breeds. This ensures females are selectively bred with males to maintain healthy blood lines. For more information about the Rare Breeds Survival Trust, visit www.rbst.org.uk
