FAnGR register of at-risk breeds of cattle, horses and ponies, sheep, goats, pigs and poultry; criteria and definitions.
The list is published by the Farm Animal Genetic Resources Committee (FAnGR Committee).
These farm animal and poultry breeds are at particular risk in the event of an outbreak of exotic disease in the UK.
For a breed to be included it must:
- be a native breed
- be eligible for inclusion in the UK National Breed Inventory
- have a population of registered breeding females below 3000 (1500 for pigs; 1000 for poultry)
