These native livestock breeds not only provide a source of livelihood but also play a role as companions and family members. Livestock breeds are evolved with precious indigenous knowledge, therefore a threat to the breeds is a threat to the indigenous knowledge. The local animal genetic resources are part of the socio-cultural life of the keepers. Many traditions and customary laws articulate around the livestock breeds.
