FAnGR resources for farmers and livestock breeders

Reports, and at risk breed lists, from the Farm Animal Genetic Resources Committee.

This collection brings together resources and reports relating to Farm Animal Genetic Resources (FAnGR) and material relating to the FAnGR Committee.

The ‘at risk breeds lists’ are for farmers checking eligibility for financial support in EU or UK schemes, or for disease risks in livestock.

You can read more information about the work of the Farm Animal Genetic Resources Committee.

We publish a regular newsletter with updates on key areas of the FAnGR Committee’s work. If you would like to join our circulation list, please email: fangr@defra.gsi.gov.uk.
