Some livestock farmers have diversified recently into the rearing of species not indigenous to the UK, including Asian water buffalo, North American bison, ostrich and camelids, or rearing species indigenous in historic times, such as wild boar and deer.

The Openfields library holds resources on raising minority species as livestock, including:

  • Wild boar
  • Llamas and alpacas
  • Deer
  • Buffalo
  • Ostrich

OpenFields brings together authoritative minority farmed species information from universities, colleges and the industry.
