Breeding

Open Word Document

Breeding is the process in which animals are produced with a specific goal. These goals are critical to define in order to meet needs of a producer for purchase. The market for which the animal is needed must be considered so that traits and characteristics of the animal can be accounted for. These characteristics might be the breed or type or the fat depth of the animal.
