Project Details

Livestock.Directory was a passion project that was meant to be an all-inclusive directory for the livestock industry. This project has been a learning process that we have spent hundreds of hours on over the last decade. While it’s success never came to fruition it is the website concept that has provided us with the most learning experience and working knowledge on website design and development. Without the many hours of work we have spent on building this concept over the years we wouldn’t be were we are today nor would we have the level of experience in the web space.
