The R.B.S.T. or Rare Breeds Survival Trust is the leading conservation charity working to restore Britain's native livestock breeds to their rightful place in our countryside.

Increasingly popular, not only for saving of the breeds involved, but also farmers who breed the animals. Generally small local farms where the animals welfare is of the utmost concern and the owners have a close working relationship with thir stock

Generally rare breeds will be raised on a farm or a small-holding due to the nature of the animals involved.

Due to the nature of the practice, children can be involved but tend to be under the guidance of an experienced adult. Once the person has gained sufficient knowledge they will be able to go it alone.

The breeding of animals should not be undertaken lightly, if it is problems can arise resulting in detrimental health for the animals involved. The prospective breeder should take care to research the particular breed they are interested in.

The Rare Breeds Survival Trust currently lists over 70 rare breeds (including cattle, goats, horses, pigs, poultry and sheep). For recognition by the Trust a breed must be an original breed, or a native breed of which at least one parent breed is believed to be extinct.

Responsible breeders know that raising animals is a full-time job. It is the breeder's responsibility to provide a safe, warm, dry place for the animals with proper food and water supplies. They must also be prepared to nurse infants if complications should arise. Breeding is not necessarily a profit-making activity. Extra food, supplies, and medical care required after the animals are born, the cost of raising animals can be very high.

The animals themselves to start the breeding programme, food, shelter and vet bills are just some of the possible expenses involved
