Description:

Comprehensive, yet concise and approachable, Genetic Improvement of Farmed Animals provides a thorough grounding in the basic sciences underpinning current farmed animal breeding practice. Relating science to practical application, it covers all the major farmed animal species: cattle, sheep, goats, poultry, pigs and fish. The book: - Provides a comprehensive coverage - from genetics, analysis and strategies for improvement to response to selection, new technologies and predicting breeding values; - Uses examples in temperate and tropical systems, sustainability and biodiversity to turn theory into practical applications; - Outlines current practice and future directions to leave readers completely up to date. Based on the previous bestseller, Genetic Improvement of Cattle and Sheep, this book has been completely revised, expanded and redesigned to be an essential textbook for undergraduate, masters and early postgraduate level students in agriculture, animal and veterinary science.
