Drive across Wisconsin, and you’ll see a lot of cows. This is the dairy state, after all. Chances are, nearly every cow you see is of the familiar black and white Holstein breed. Ninety percent of all dairy cows in the United States are Holsteins. The second-most popular breed, Jerseys, account for another seven percent. That means that there’s only three percent of U.S. dairy cows that are of other breeds. That kind of monoculture is a potential problem says the Livestock Conservancy, which seeks to preserve endangered or rare breeds of domestic farm animals. Ryan Walker is the Communications Manager for the Livestock Conservancy, and he joined Monday Buzz host Brian Standing on September 11, 2017.
