Stochastic simulation of breeding schemes to improve economic genetic merit in mink production



Stochastic simulation of breeding schemes to improve economic genetic merit in mink production



Scientifur 28(3): 194-200



In this study, selection within farms was compared with selection across farms connected with an exchange of breeding animals following a circular pattern between farms. We expected that a systematic exchange of animals in a group of farms would increase the total economic genetic merit. Genetic gain is influenced by several factors, among others population size, which can be increased by collaboration between several farms.
