Heritage Breeds

This is International Heritage Breeds Week. 16-22nd May; aiming to to raise global awareness about endangered heritage breeds of farm animals. Many of our traditional livestock and poultry breeds have been replaced with more 'improved' breeds in modern animal agriculture, at the expense of a massive loss in genetic diversity. Worldwide, about one domesticated livestock breed every month is lost.

RBST and BWA are committed to preserving our Brtitish breeds. Which goose and which duck would you champion on a set of stamps?
