LowInputBreeds Newsletter

LowInputBreeds Newsletter December 2012


The seventh newsletter of the LowInputBreeds project contains information about about progress in subprojects, and the thematic article in this issue explains breeding values for selective traits of Skafiano sheep.

We would particularly like to draw your attention to the third Symposium of the LowInputBreeds project, which will take place in Nantes, France, from the 26th to the 30th of August 2013. LowInputBreeds will manage a session "Breeding and Management in Low Input Production Systems" as a contribution to the 64th Annual Meeting of the European Federation of Animal Science (EAAP) meeting. This is an ideal opportunity to share findings from the project and we would like to encourage all to submit an abstract by March 1, 2013.
