Background

Background

  • Replacement of local/regional, often ‘dual purpose’cattle breeds by specialized, widely used breeds

  • Many autochtonous, dual-purpose, regional/local breeds became rare breeds

  • How to maintain these breeds, the associated agro-ecosystems and our cultural heritage

  • Local/regional cattle breeds are a very visible part of our rural area and agricultural cultural heritage in Europe

  • Successfull strategies for conservation, development and use of such ‘regional/local’ cattle breeds ?


Objectives

Objectives

  • To better understand the factors affecting demographic dynamics of local/regional cattle breeds

  • To assess status and organisation of existing cattle cryopreservation programmes

  • To review available methodologies and software, which are useful supportive tools for genetic management

  • To construct a map of breed development perspectives and suggest guidelines for succesful programmes

  • To assist in development of national or cross-border strategies towards self-sustainability and a higher profitability

  • To exchange state of the art knowledge + ‘good practices’


Approach and methodology

Approach and methodology

  • Identification of important factors that influence breed dynamics and success or suboptimal success (15 breed cases)

  • Determine a minimum set of parameters to analyze a larger number of breeds

  • Collect data from existing cryopreservation programs (4) and identify criteria for rationalization of cryopreservation programs

  • Test the results of 1-3 in a Europe wide survey

  • To assess existing tools, practices and software for their use in genetic management

  • To develop guidelines for successful programs

  • To carry out 5 breed strategy demonstration cases to test the guidelines

  • To communicate and disseminate results of the project widely
