There is no universally superior or inferior breed. It all boils down to relative intake.
Every environment dictates a specific genotype.
Man is either the problem or the solution when it comes to having the genotype required by a specific environment. In order for breeders to be aligned to the environment the following steps need to be followed:
- Select the appropriate breeds / genotypes as a base.
- Select the appropriate individuals within those breeds / genotypes.
- The breed / genotype combinations need to be complementary. The majority of any hybrid vigour that is generated will be maintained and should be considered a bonus.
- Select within a “closed” herd:
- *Maturity Rate
- *Practical Fertility
- *Optimum Milk
- *Meat:Bone ratio
In order for breeders to be creative they have unshackle themselves from breed propaganda and modern day witch doctors.
Accelerate natural selection.
