Help us mark the release of The Livestock Conservancy’s book, An Introduction to Heritage Breeds, by brushing up on your breed ID!

We cooked up this heritage breeds matching game to celebrate the release of  The Livestock Conservancy’s book, An Introduction to Heritage Breeds at the Mother Earth News Fair in Asheville, North Carolina, using Carolyn Guske’s gorgeous illustrations from the book.

To test your animal knowledge, simply:

  1. Download this PDF of 25 heritage breed names.
  2. Write the number from the upper lefthand corner of each illustration below next to the correct breed name on your PDF (or just revel in the beauty of Carolyn Guske’s art)!
  3. Check your answers using the key at the end of this post.

Happy matching!
