This book is very much useful for the second year students of B.V.Sc. course who are studying in veterinary colleges all over India. Veterinary Council of India recently changed the syllabus for the veterinary undergraduate students so as to make uniform veterinary curriculum. In this circumstances, Livestock and Poultry Breeding, a course in the third semester seems to be a tougher one for the below average as well as average students. At present, there is no single book available to cover all the topics. A student should go through at least six to eight books which were all written in very high standard of English. Students studied in vernacular languages in their school may need a book like this one in simple English, covering all the syllabus. This book deals with History of Animal Breeding, Different methods of selection, Complications of selection, Response to selection, Inbreeding, Outbreeding, Crossbreeding, New breeds of Livestock, Nucleus Breeding System and Livestock Breeding Policy of India. This book is also useful for post graduate students of Animal Genetics and Breeding to face National Eligibility Test (NET) conducted by Agricultural Scientists Recruitement Board(ASRB) , Veterinary graduates who are all pursuing competitive exams conducted by State Public Service Commissions and Biology/Veterinary graduates preparing for Union Public Service Commission

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 of such advances have not been clearly evaluated. Economic Aspects of Animal Breeding redresses the balance and provides a much needed synthesis of this most important subject. The book is divided into five sections: basic concepts; economic evaluation of genetic differences; advanced topics in selection indices; economic evaluation of breeding programs, including biotechnological aspects; crossbreeding and heterosis.

Since the time of domestication more than 10,000 years ago, cattle have played an increasingly crucial role in the development of human civilizations. Progress has been quite remarkable since the turn of the century; the sequencing of the bovine genome in 2009 launched new avenues for furthering our understanding of theoretical and practical aspects of cattle genetics. Covering a vast array of questions, this book reviews major topics from molecular and developmental genetics, disease resistance and immunogenetics to genetic improvement of dairy and beef breeds, addressing all current problems in the field. This second edition includes a new team of authors and completely new chapters on the genetics of fat production, nutrition, feed intake and efficiency, growth and body composition. Fully updated throughout, it provides a valuable resource on cattle genetics for researchers, breeders, veterinarians and postgraduate students.

Krone der Schöpfung? Vor 100 000 Jahren war der Homo sapiens noch ein unbedeutendes Tier, das unauffällig in einem abgelegenen Winkel des afrikanischen Kontinents lebte. Unsere Vorfahren teilten sich den Planeten mit mindestens fünf weiteren menschlichen Spezies, und die Rolle, die sie im Ökosystem spielten, war nicht größer als die von Gorillas, Libellen oder Quallen. Vor 70 000 Jahren dann vollzog sich ein mysteriöser und rascher Wandel mit dem Homo sapiens, und es war vor allem die Beschaffenheit seines Gehirns, die ihn zum Herren des Planeten und zum Schrecken des Ökosystems werden ließ. Bis heute hat sich diese Vorherrschaft stetig zugespitzt: Der Mensch hat die Fähigkeit zu schöpferischem und zu zerstörerischem Handeln wie kein anderes Lebewesen. Anschaulich, unterhaltsam und stellenweise hochkomisch zeichnet Yuval Harari die Geschichte des Menschen nach und zeigt alle großen, aber auch alle ambivalenten Momente unserer Menschwerdung.

This book fills the gap between textbooks of quantitative genetic theory, and software manuals that provide details on analytical methods but little context or perspective on which methods may be most appropriate for a particular application. Accordingly this book is composed of two sections. The first section (Chapters 1 to 8) covers topics of classical phenotypic data analysis for prediction of breeding values in animal and plant breeding programs. In the second section (Chapters 9 to 13) we provide the concept and overall review of available tools for using DNA markers for predictions of genetic merits in breeding populations. With advances in DNA sequencing technologies, genomic data, especially single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) markers, have become available for animal and plant breeding programs in recent years. Analysis of DNA markers for prediction of genetic merit is a relatively new and active research area. The algorithms and software to implement these algorithms are changing rapidly. This section represents state-of-the-art knowledge on the tools and technologies available for genetic analysis of plants and animals. However, readers should be aware that the methods or statistical packages covered here may not be available or they might be out of date in a few years. Ultimately the book is intended for professional breeders interested in utilizing these tools and approaches in their breeding programs. Lastly, we anticipate the usage of this volume for advanced level graduate courses in agricultural and breeding courses.

Best Linear Unbiased Prediction (BLUP) has become the most widely accepted method for genetic evaluation of domestic livestock. Since its introduction, the method has evolved and despite this there is no simple text on the application of linear models to the prediction of breeding values. This book has been written with a good balance of theory and application to fill this gap. Equations for partitioning breeding values into contributions from various sources of information are derived under the various models. Recent developments in the analysis of longitudinal data with random regression models and the inclusion of genetic marker information in the evaluation of animals have been incorporated. Overall the book has been thoroughly updated since the first edition was published in 1996.

Information on an animal and its relatives can be used to predict the animal's genetic merit, taking account of the relationships between measurements and the economic values of traits. This book describes the methodology for predicting the genetic merit of animals in the context of improvement in an animal program. It discusses the methods for combing different sources of information and illustrates their use with examples of breeding programs in cattle, sheep, pigs, and poultry. This methodology is developed from first principles, without unnecessary detail or complexity, and all the required statistical and mathematical concepts are fully explained. A series of questions helps reinforce the ideas and provide some practical experience in the prediction of genetic merit. The text is most useful for final year undergraduate and first-year graduate students of quantitative genetics and animal breeding.

The determination of when, how, how often and with whom an animal breeds is moving rapidly away from evolutionary pressures and towards human purposes: these include the breeding of around 50 billion mammals and birds for food production annually, the breeding of pedigree dogs and cats, racing dogs and horses, specialised laboratory animal strains and the use of reproductive science to conserve endangered species or breeds and to limit unwanted populations of pests and non-native species. But the ethics and sustainability of this takeover of animals' reproductive lives have been insufficiently examined by either professionals or the public. This book discusses the methods, the motivations and the consequences of human intervention in animal breeding in terms of animal health, behaviour and well-being. It explores where we are now and the choices ahead, and looks to a future where we have more respect for animals as sentient beings and where we could loosen the reins of reproductive control.
