A new gene bank with some 100 specimens of the Šentjernej rooster breed opened in Šentjernej, south-east.

The project is a collaboration of the cultural and ethnological association Gallus Bartholomaeus, the Agriculture Ministry and the Department of Natural Sciences at Ljubljana’s Biotehnical Faculty. Some EUR 20,000 were annually invested in the the project by 2010, with the ministry and the faculty funding experts, while breeders helped cover the remaining costs.
