Any animal exploitation, in view of efficiency in the production process and productivity requires an improvement program that meets the specifics of the production system and be prepared for market changes and consumer expectations.

The GENECOC besides stimulating the zootechnical bookkeeping and lay the foundation of the national livestock archive, performs genetic evaluations with estimates of Expected Progeny Differences (EPD's), promotes the integration of livestock and the spread of higher genetic material, performs the training of technicians and breeders, and accomplish research to establish appropriate objectives and selection criteria for different regions.
