Promoting Randall Cattle
        One of the most important responsibilities of the Randall Registry is to promote public awareness of this special cattle breed.  This often means participating in events highlighting the importance of conserving all endangered livestock species and breeds.  Other venues may be those which promote the preservation of the small sustainable farming systems for which these endangered farm animals, like Randall cattle, are well suited. 
        Randall breeders and supporters also play a key role in this work, through the ownership and use of their animals, and their willingness to spread the word about the importance of livestock genetic conservation.  Exhibiting Randalls in public settings, fairs, farm field days, and other events, as well as encouraging media coverage of our collective endeavors with the Randalls, are all parts of the Randall recovery effort.
        This page will keep you abreast of the promotional activities of the Registry and Randall owners and enthusiasts.  We invite you, as Randall breeders and supporters, to send us reports of your own promotional successes to also be included here.
