Join Us

Individually many people have an interest in rare and minority breeds and wish to see them survive. More can be achieved as a group working together. By joining the Rare Breeds Trust of Australia, we have the opportunity to exchange information, bloodlines and enjoy the stimulation and benefits derved from a diverse group of people with a shared interest. 

The Rare Breeds Trust of Australia is working to establish a trust to fund research, semen and embryo storage and to subidise the cost of keeping male animals of a particular breeding line which might otherwise be disposed of because of the difficulty of management of entire male animals. Unfortunately here in Australia, we do not have access to government grants and subsidies which are available overseas. Your membership assists in preserving our endangered breeds. 

We conduct livestock surveys on our members' holdings and also of people who are not members. This enables us to at least keep track of the status of various breeds of domestic farm animals. 

As a member, you will receive our informative quarterly newsletter "Paddocks and Perches".
