Animal breeding programs are as important to the small-scale individual farmer with a single herd as the large farming company with many herds. The starting point in any breeding program is the selection of the animals from which to breed. This becomes the foundation stock. The criteria used to select these animals will vary according to the type of animal the farmer ultimately wants to have in their herd. In this course, you'll learn the major animal breeding programs, artificial selection for milk production, and artificial insemination. Includes a useful table with selection criteria.
