Humans and sheep began their relationship over 10,000 years ago. Today we are at risk of losing some of these heritage sheep. The Livestock Conservancy is concentrating on 22 breeds sheep that are on the Conservation Priority List.
The Livestock Conservancy has long said that the way to save endangered breeds of livestock is to give them a job. In the case of wool sheep, we need to start using their wool again.
How does it work?
