A new book entitled ” Anarchy or Establishment” was published at the end of May 2019. The biography is the journey of a shy boy from a remote Pennine hill farm to a man who is now a renowned international consultant on conservation genetics with a CBE for services to rare breeds – our very own President, Lawrence Alderson.
Lawrence has dedicated much of his life to saving traditional native breeds and was founder president of Rare Breeds International and the founder, scientific consultant, director and chairman of the Rare Breeds Survival Trust. He is an eternal optimist with a ‘glass half full’ attitude to life, always looking for positive opportunities even when the outlook is bleak. His smiling northern sense of humour has carried him through many farming disasters such as Foot and Mouth Disease.
“Anarchy or Establishment” is 224 pages long and has 145 photos. It retails at £25 and is available to order from Hayloft Publishing on [email protected] or 079 713 524 73.
