Animal Biosciences Research
Genetic improvement of Animals
The objective of this sub-programme is to undertake research studies and innovation activities focusing on identifying genotypes that have greater profit potential under grass-based systems of production using both quantitative and molecular genetic approaches.
Potential Impact Indicators:
- Incorporation of genomic selection into dairy cattle programmes.
- Improved reproductive and health performance of national dairy cow herds.
- Increased use of AI.
