Advantages of selective breeding?
An advantage of selective breeding is that producers can produce cows or bulls with characteristics that improve the breed or the herd itself, or produce more income for the producer when calves are sold. Selective breeding means herd improvement, on things such as milking ability, mothering ability, carcass quality, forage utilization efficiency, calving ease, stayability, birth weights, weaning weights, etc.

Selective breeding is the process in which two animals from thesame species reproduce due to useful characteristics. Two animalswith a certain type of characteristic are bred …together to produceoffspring. Then the offspring with the most useful characteristicbreeds with another offspring to produce more offspring. Thisprocess continues for generations until the offspring consistentlyhave the useful characteristic farmers or scientists are lookingfor. Cross-breeding is a type of selective breeding except withanimals from two organisms from the same species but not the samebreed. Selective breeding is one of the most common causes for awide range of breeds in animals and varieties in plants. this isincorrect It is the process which humans use animal breeding and plantbreeding to selectively develop particular characteristics bychoosing which typically animal or plant males and females willsexually reproduce and have offspring together
disadvantage: selective breeding gets rid of variety advantage: selective breeding rules out weakness and disability disadvantage: isn't that what Hitler tried to do with …humans in WWII? do we really want to be like him? Selective breeding(or artificial selection) produces traits which may be advantagious to us, but be a disadvantage to the animal.Here are some examples-The lapps of northern Europe herd and breed the wild deer, selecting docile animals. The resulting herds could not survive in the wild.Cows with big udders are good for us , but are probably painful for the cow. English bulldogs mght be considered a cool looking dog, but have breathing difficulties and such small pelvises that they often have to give birth by causation. Advantages: Can produce fitter, stronger animals or animals of a higher yield of milk, meat or eggs for example. Can produce animals better suited to survive in poor climates or marginal conditions, thus preserving human food supplies and saving life. Can ensure the eradication of hereditary sickness in some blood lines. Disadvantages: For show animals such wild kitten eatingas some dogs, it is practised quite strictly by breeders aiming at a certain look which is set down as the breed "standard"- many Dalmation puppies are euthanased because they do not exhibit the breed standards for example, so there are serious moral questions to it too.Too much close interbreeding to obtain certain cosmetic traits can also result in the amplifying of inherent illnesses - like the bulldogs mentioned above, or German shephered dogs with hip problems and so on - in fact, these issues are rapidly worsening in recent years with dogs in particular. keep in mind it will eat your babies if you anger them.
Selective breeding helps to rule out weakness and disability in animals and helps make farming more lucrative for farmers by providing more robust animals for sale. Corn woul…d only have ten kernels or less per ear withour selective breeding!
advantages: . we get more breeds and more animals/plants easier . people can make more more Disadvantages . the animals/plants can have genetic diseases . It is hard t…o get rid of the genetic diseases because you have to breed them out
The advantages of selective breeding include producing a dog thatmeets the standard of the breed. Disadvantages include producingdogs with very short faces, squat legs, and la…rge bodies.
Could create genetic mutation that harm the animal but may create ones that make it adaptable into living and reproducing.
all breeds of animal can be selective breed DaveScriv added: Indeed all breeds of domestic livestock were created by selective breeding, although it looks more obvious on som…e than others. Taking a few chicken breeds as examples, Drentse & Friesians (both from The Netherlands) don't look much different from wild Jungle Fowl in size & shape (although bred in many plumage colour varieties, most of which are different from JF colours), so don't look as though they've been subjected to much selective breeding, but they've still been selectively bred to an extent, and have existed for over 1000 years (long before they were 'officially recognised breeds') in their home regions to be active little birds which could find most of their own food (their original peasant owners couldn't spare much valuable grain in this mainly cattle/pasture region) and be nimble and alert enough to avoid being eaten by foxes. The Netherlands is also one home country of Sabelpoot Bantams (also developed in England as 'Booted Bantams' & Germany as 'Federfussige Zwerghuhner', one of the most extreme (huge feathering on legs & feet, plus an wide range of plumage colours & patterns) and obvious examples of selective breeding. Some of the colour varieties are fairly new, but Booteds/Federfussiges/Sabelpoots generally were first developed well over 200 years ago. Google the breed names to get pictures.
its when you take a desirable trait to produce a certain kind of offspring. like making bigger sweeter strawberries or making horses faster.
I don't breed animals myself but I have researched this topic.. Selective breeding is used to obtain desired traits in the offspring. This technique has been practised on dom…estic animals, but mostly livestock.. One advantage of this technique is that you can create pets to fit your lifestyle. I know that people who are allergic to dog hair order poodle crosses because they don't molt, but a family can still have another breed of dog.. In livestock it is used to fatten up cows, or keep the racing gene in horses. This is also how the bloodlines horses stay "purebred".
1. endangering the 'selective breeding' speacies 2. how am i suppose to know im 10???
Selective breeding in domesticated animals is the process of a breeder developing a cultivated breed over time, and selecting qualities within individuals of the breed that wi…ll be best to pass on to the next generation.
reduction of health care and educational expenses
in selective breeding, animals choose the mate who is the fastest, fittest, and who has the best genes to pass on to their offspring. animals who do selective breeding evolve …and become better.
To get fish the color you want.
In Animal Life
well some times they come out with deformities not bad ones but there are some risks the advantages is that they come out looking better than ever
yes this is true earth formed 4.6 billion years ago
why do we make selectively breed happen
