This book attempts to outline population genetics and quantitative ge netics as they pertain to animal breeding and to discuss the theoretical aspects of this field of agricultural activity. Therefore, it brings into focus the basic principles of animal breeding, which are illustrated with per tinent examples; however, it is not intended to. The objective of this study is to describe the present organisational structure of Boran cattle breeding and develop a model breeding programme using a deterministic approach under the current structure of the Boran Cattle Breeders Society. A breeding unit of 13, cows supplying bulls to a commercial population of 39, cows was assumed. Selection criteria used were growth and Cited by:
Animal breeding, controlled propagation of domestic animals in order to improve desirable qualities. Humanity has been modifying domesticated animals to better suit human needs for centuries. Selective breeding involves using knowledge from several branches of science. These include genetics, statistics, reproductive physiology, computer science, and molecular genetics.

Lush, J.L. Animal Breeding Plans: This is a very old book that I sadly ignored for years. Jay Lush knew a lot. This important book covers economic evaluation of genetic differences in animals, determination of breeding goals within an economic context and economic evaluation of breeding programs.
During the last 50 years there have been great advances made in the breeding of domesticated animal species. Most of this work has been achieved through the efforts of geneticists, and often the economic goals. The book covers the area of animal bteeding under six broad sections with 23 chaptets starting from history to biotechnology in animal breeding including estimation and computation of numerical.
