About The Book

Livestock production occupies an important place in agriculture economy of India both through contribution of GDP and employment especially in rural and peri-urban areas. It is also contributing highly nutritious protein food at relatively cheaper prices for human population.The main objective of animal breeding is to bring improvement in livestock using different traits of economic importance. Majority of the economic traits are controlled by multiple genes mostly additively and thus  are quantitative in nature rather than being quantitative. The basic principles of inheritance and breeding are the same for all animals; however, implementation of breeding schemes differs considerably from species to species. Reasons for this include differences in reproductive capacity, potential to record traits of interest and available resources for research and implementation. Hence, this book attempts to describe applied breeding methods for different domestic animal species as currently implemented. However, an attempt has been made to include international perspectives wherever relevant because students are expected to deal with international challenges in their future careers. As far as possible, the chapters have been structured the same way for easy across-species comparisons.
