National Standing Committee on Farm Animal Genetic Resources

The National Standing Committee on Farm Animal Genetic Resources (NSC FAnGR) was established in 2008 as a Non-Departmental Public Body (NDPB) with participation from the devolved administrations.

The UK’s Farm Animal Genetic Resources (FAnGR) – its farm animal breeds, strains and varieties, and the variability within them – are of great economic, social and cultural importance. For these reasons alone it is important that we care for them. Additionally, we have national and international obligations to do so.
