Breeding and biotechnology in farm animals – ethical issues 1 C. Gamborg & P. Sandøe Introduction still increasing extent they are the outcome of farm animal breeding, i.e. genetic improvement. This is a post-print of a chapter from the book Key issues in . For farm animal breeding, the cost of cryopreservation and the likelihood of a successful outcome following AI must be considered when deciding whether to use fresh, cooled or frozen sperm doses. The spermatozoa are mixed with a protective solution containing lipoproteins, sugars and a cryoprotectant such as by: 8.
the quality, quantity as well as profitability of farm animals. Additionally, effective genetic improvement and management systems limit genetic exchange among the populations, minimize inbreeding and preserve special characters of each population. Breeding Focus – Improving Resilience Preface Genetic improvement of resilience is the topic for Breeding Focus It is our Farm animals suffer constant bombardment with cocktails of infectious pathogens present in the environment. Eliminating these pathogens from farms is not always feasible.
Artificial insemination (AI) is the most important single technique devised for the genetic improvement of animals. Major advantages of AI are: genetic improvement; control of venereal diseases; availability of accurate breeding records; economic service; and safety through elimination of dangerous males. The process of selecting animals based on their genetics has helped advance agricultural productivity over the past 50 years. A good example of genetic improvement is in poultry breeding. Between and , poultry breeders selected traits to increase the body weight of broiler (meat) chickens.

• The book covers the discipline of animal breeding from its history, quantitative genetic principles, selection, mating systems and the breeding. Develop a set of aims for a breeding program, for a chosen farm animal.
Develop a checklist of criteria for selecting animals in a breeding program for a specified type of farm animal. Explain natural selection, by giving an example of its application in a farm animal breeding program. Genetic Improvement and Escapes of Farm Animals.
Genetic improvement of aquaculture species also provides promise in improving production. Strains of several species that grow faster, exhibit greater disease resistance, and have other more favorable characteristics for aquaculture have been produced through selective breeding. This book describes the principles of genetic improvement of farm livestock and the practical application of these principles to dairy cattle, beef cattle and sheep breeding.

Seller Inventory # CABI/5(1). Records are a vital part of any breeding programme, in particular for Pedigree animals. Records include: stud books (official lists of animals of a particular breed which show the genealogy of the breed.
There are stud books for a wide range of animals including: horses, farm livestock, domesticated animals and exotic animals commonly found in. Breeding farm animals involves such steps as evaluation of their production potential, selection of suitable individuals that excel in production, and mating them together in a planned manner to obtain still better offspring.
All these steps are directed towards improving the genetic production potential or genotype of animals. Animal breeding, genetics, and genomics is the branch of science concerned with maximizing desirable genetic traits, such as producing animals that have leaner meat.
Animal geneticists have identified elements within genes that can enhance animal growth, health, and ability to utilize nutrients. These genetic advances can increase production while reducing environmental.

Spawning and maturation of aquaculture species proceedings of the twenty-eighth US-Japan. New Technologies in Animal Breeding looks at new reproductive technologies in breeding domestic animals, such as sex selection, frozen storage of oocytes and embryos, in vitro fertilization and embryo culture, amphibian nuclear transplantation, parthenogenesis, identical twins and cloning in mammals, and gene transfer in mammalian cells.
In livestock species, breeding goals are aimed primarily at improvement of production traits. However, there are a number of examples where selection for high production efficiency has resulted in reduced welfare through unfavorable outcomes in health, welfare and fitness characteristics.
It is the society’s understanding of these effects that has raised questions .Future breeding plans for genetic improvement of farm animals in different agro-ecological zones of Pakistan. Emerging bio-technologies for increasing animal productivity.
Practical: Exercises on the maintenance and standardization of productive and reproductive records. Estimation of Breeding Values using standardized records.Animal husbandry is the branch of agriculture concerned with animals that are raised for meat, fibre, milk, eggs, or other includes day-to-day care, selective breeding and the raising of livestock.
Husbandry has a long history, starting with the Neolithic revolution when animals were first domesticated, from aro BC onwards, antedating farming of the first crops.
