Dalton's Introduction to Practical Animal Breeding by Willis, Malcolm B.
Wiley-Blackwell | 15 September 1998
Paperback | 166 pages
Genetics is a difficult subject to understand and even more difficult to put into practice on the farm. Increasing pressure is put on farmers to improve the performance of their livestock and this established textbook explains the theoretical basis of Mendelism, population genetics, selection and breeding and their applications on the farm. The fourth edition has been completely revised with expanded sections on practical breeding of cattle, sheep and pigs and new information on horses, goats, alpacas and dogs.
