Animal Breeding and Quantitative Genetics Group

The animal breeding and quantitative genetics group conducts research on dairy and beef cattle, and swine. Most of our research is applied, typically involving biometrical and statistical analyses of large-scale, field-recorded data from milk recording, beef recording and swine recording programmes. We develop and prototype software tools resulting from our academic research in animal breeding and farm animal recording systems.
