“The American Meishan Breeders Association (A.M.B.A.) is dedicated to identifying, cataloging, preserving and promoting pure Meishan Pig genetics. To do so the A.M.B.A is guided by these fundamental principles.
1. The most effective way to benefit any rare breed is to first benefit its breeders.
2. Critical in preserving any rare breed is to identify the most appropriate niche for that breed in the food supply chain.
3. The A.M.B.A. will serve as a resource for identifying which farm models and end uses of the hog maximize its value.
4. In service of the above three objectives the A.M.B.A. will develop and protect the Meishan brand for its member breeders”
