Mirandes cattle breed: genetic base and breed improvement



Mirandes cattle breed: genetic base and breed improvement



Livestock farming systems: research, development socio economics and land management Proceedings of the Third International Symposium Aberdeen, Scotland, 1-2 September 1994: 79-84



The "Mirandes" cattle breed has had a herd book since 1913 and the agricultural service has implemented a programme of genetic improvement since the 70's. However, in spite of what has been expected, positive results were not found on that programme and the "Mirandes" cattle breed has gone into a decline. This paper analyses the strategies of several cattle breeder types and the genetic demographic structure of cattle within a community in northeast Portugal.
