Wednesday, March 29, 2017

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

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