What is a genetic selection program for animal breeding?
families of animals that possess desirable traits (i.e. growth rate, meat quality,
health status). A prerequisite for a genetic selection program
is the collection of an initial population that shows genetic variation in a
group of traits of interest
to the program, the recording of their individual performance and the
implementation of an appropriate program for cross-breeding.
The genetic selection programs do not employ techniques for genetic
modifications, genetic engineering and gene transfer. As a result, the implementation of
does not involve controversial
