Selection of Simmental cattle on beef and meatiness traits in Serbia



Selection of Simmental cattle on beef and meatiness traits in Serbia



Biotechnology in Animal Husbandry 21(3/4): 25-34



The population of domestic Simmental breed represents a dominant population of cattle in Serbia. Due to the importance of this breed, selection was performed in order to improve milk production. On the other hand, beef and meatiness traits were almost ignored. Selection of dual-purpose cattle required a combination a various breeding goals and selection methods that differ from those applied in pure dairy or beef herds.
