The creation of high-yield animal and poultry breeds and crosses

  • V. I. Fisinin
Scientific Session of the RAS General Meeting


As a result of recent basic research by teams of research institutions of the Federal Agency for Scientific Organizations (FASO Russia) in coordination with institutes of the Russian Ministry of Agriculture, the Russian Academy of Sciences, and regional pedigree enterprises, new breeding forms in cattle raising, hog farming, sheep farming, horse breeding, fishery, and poultry farming have been created and assimilated. Traditional breeds that ensure import substitution of genetic resources of animals necessary to intensify meat and dairy production have been improved. In recent decades, more than 40 new and improved breeding forms of animals have been created, providing for about two-thirds of the total gain of livestock products per year.
