RBST CEO Christopher Price and Conservation Adviser Andrea Parry-Jones ran a session to demonstrate the environmental and financial benefits of using native livestock and equines in conservation grazing.

Our native breeds were bred to thrive in our landscapes. They created the habitats, the meadows and pastures that we need to manage better or restore, and so it is through their use that we are most likely to achieve desired environmental objectives. The session offers an established approach to creating a sustainable conservation grazing regime using native breeds based on the principle of having the right breed, in the right place at the right density. The latest information on the potential for securing payment under ELM for keeping native livestock and equines will be provided.
