Integrating genetic improvement into livestock development in medium- to - low-input smallholder production systems



Integrating genetic improvement into livestock development in medium- to - low-input smallholder production systems



Proceedings of the 7th World Congress on Genetics Applied to Livestock Production, Montpellier, France, August, 2002 Session 25: 1-4



In smallholder production systems, it is important to integrate genetic improvement programmes with other livestock improvement activities such as the improved health, nutrition, and management as well as access to output markets. Experience has shown that the success of implementing a genetic improvement programme increases when it is initiated after dairying attains a minimum level of maturity.
