Animal improvement and biotechnology in the breeding of ruminants



Animal improvement and biotechnology in the breeding of ruminants



Cahiers Agricultures 2(3): 211-216



This paper discusses genetic improvement of livestock from a historical viewpoint, problems of the application of methods of improvement in restrictive natural and social environments, and the application of biotechnology in animal breeding. It suggests that genetic improvement should be regarded as part of a sustainable agricultural system.
