Livestock Conservancy SponsorshipGrass-fed Genetics
Our National Sponsorship of the Livestock Conservancy demonstrates our commitment to the preservation of genetic diversity in Livestock. Genetic diversity creates a reserve that can be utilized in diverse farming operations and climatic conditions.
Modern agriculture's implementation of the "Monoclonal System" can be seen from crops to chicken and swine production where the mantra of "one size fits all" is constantly preached. Due to its narrow genetic base, the susceptibility of this system to unforeseen consequences continues to be a concern for society because any significant failure will have adverse repercussions for all.
Whispering Hills Farm embraces the concept of permaculture in all aspects of our farm operations. We see our support of the Livestock Conservancy as important in achieving this goal.
