Development of a breeding programme for beef cattle based on the case of the Fleischringer-Herdbuch Bonn. e.V 2nd communication: Definition of the reference situation, strategies to optimize the breeding programme, cost-benefit analysis



Zuechtungskunde 70(3): 172-184, May-June



The objective of this study was the development of a breeding programme for the beef-cattle breed Limousin based on the case of the beef cattle herdbook Bonn (Fleischrinder-Herdbuch Bonn e.V.). For the calculation of the cost-benefit analysis a reference situation was defined taking the population structure, the economic and genetic parameters, the biologic-technical coefficients as well as the method of performance testing into account. Based on the results of the present investigation the following suggestions and approaches regarding future breeding activities of the beef cattle herdbook Bonn can be derived, that the selection solely based on undirected self performance testing in-field (weight at licensing and conformation mark) resulted in negative breeding progress. Positive breeding progress was achieved through onstation performance testing, directed in-field performance testing (determination of the body weight at 210 and 365 days of age and of the conformation mark) and the combination of directed in-field and on-station performance testing considering all available pedigree information.
