What are some advantages and disadvantages of selective breeding in animals?
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

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.
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 har…d to get rid of the genetic diseases because you have to breed them out
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 p…roducer 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.
1 answer is the animals that are in captive breeding cannot be harmed by forest fires, flooding or other species of animals Answer 2: animals are protected in an in - built… habitat and are protected from hunting and poaching so is their habitat. the disadvantage is that sometimes people don't take god care of the animals. so it does more harm than good. another disadvantage is that there is no control over the long term issues i hope this helps
This probably isn't one of the best answers ever but animals like cattle (cows) are selectively bred so that the consumers can find what they want. Say for example a farmer br…ed a cow so that the meat isn't fatty- this means that people might prefer this as this is the meat they like best.- selective breeding however is probably not the best idea as the cow may not live its normal, most natural life. The process does not harm the animals but but can be risky especially if the animal you are breeding has an unknown disease.
Natural selection can help creatures adapt to their enviorment. Sometimes this can cause unwanted problems.
Could create genetic mutation that harm the animal but may create ones that make it adaptable into living and reproducing.
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 practis…ed on domestic 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???
farmers selectivly breed cattle to get the characteristics they desire for the job they are going to put the offspring to do
The advantage of animal breeding is that animals that are close to extinction can be repopulated. The disadvantage of animal breeding is over population of common animal s…pecies.
cross-breeding it may result in getting more and giving the combination of different breeds.
In Animal Life
You can do selective breeding with any animal from dogs to cows for different reasons.
Reasons For Animal Testing Medical Advancement: The most obvious advantage of animal testing is for medical experimentation. Advancements in medicine help pe…ople, animals, and even plants. Unfortunately, the best way to test potentially new medicines is through animal testing, and if initially successful, then by human testing too. It is considered more humane to do medical testing on animals first, then on humans first, for the obvious reason that human life is considered more precious than animals. Additionally, new medicines can also help animals too, so this falls under the philosophy of the needs of the many (animals) outweigh the needs of the few (animals). Meaning the few animals that are sacrificed or tested upon is worth less than the many animals that are potentially saved or helped, thus helping the greater good is more morale. Of course, this opinion is subjective to each person. Product Safety: Another popular reason for animal testing is for determining the safety of products, such as cosmetics testing. In theory, animals used for safety testing are typically not killed and remain healthy, however they are often maltreated. Again, it is commonly considered that the safety of people outweighs the safety of animals, thus animal testing for safety is common. Scientific Knowledge: Animal testing and experimentation is an excellent source to increase scientific knowledge. No one knows what knowledge that will be attained through animal testing, so the value of such animal testing cannot be ascertained ahead of time or even guessed. The most common examples of animal experimentation for scientific knowledge are animal biopsies and vivisections in schools to teach children biology and medical procedures. While this type of animal testing might not yield immediate useful results, it has been helpful in the long term of helping science. Accuracy: Finally, the biggest reason for animal testing is because it works better than any other alternative. Why animal testing can yield results different than human testing, the similarities between animals and humans is staggering and thus helpful to mankind. Reasons Against Animal Testing Torture and Suffering: Animals undergoing testing can be subjected to torture and suffering. Alternatively in some cases, some animals may be even cured of their ailments and diseases during the process of animal testing. Death: Animals can, and sometimes often, die in the process of animal testing. Ethics/Morality: The ethics and morality of testing on animals is often debated. A large number of people do not believe animal testing is ethical, however they often concede that it is necessary. Choice: Since animals cannot volunteer for animal testing, then some people believe animal testing is not ethical. These people believe that it is only ethical to test on subjects who willingly give their consent for self testing. Accuracy: As mentioned before, animals are different than people, thus their testing results are not always useful or practical for human comparisons. Therefore, if the usefulness of animal testing is in question, then animal testing should be reconsidered. Price: Finally, the price of keeping and disposing of animals can be quite high. That is why testing, on computer simulations, has increased recently. However, the accuracy of computer simulations is less than animal testing.
what are the disvantages of animal extinction
advantages: Its easy to do and the techniques are more professinal. disadvantages: the equipment you use can break very easily.
Various advantages of selective distribution include reduced costs, increased market coverage, and better control over sales. Disadvantages may include that it does not co…ver the market well enough or that it becomes difficult to match specific retailers and dealers to your needs.
