AbstractFull Text

Genomic selection was implemented in France in 2009 for 3 French dairy cattle breeds and was then extended to 3 beef and 5 extra dairy cattle breeds. It was also implemented in the Lacaune dairy sheep breed in 2015, and will start in 2017 for the 2 main goat breeds and 3 other dairy sheep breeds....

AbstractFull Text

There is evidence globally that genetic gains in cattle production efficiency traits can also drive improvements in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions intensity (i.e. methane or CO2 equivalent emissions per unit of product). In this study, we predicted improvements in GHG emissions intensity expected...
