ASI 813 - Economic Breeding Programs

Credits: 1

The primary goal of this course is to provide a survey of methodology for developing an economic basis for multiple trait selection to improve the profitability of production.  Much of the material is abstracted from the scientific literature, from which a sampling of relevant references will be provided.  Therefore, an overarching goal of this course is to instill the capacity to critically analyze relevant literature as an aid to solving future problems.  Specific topics included are: a review of concepts relevant to selection index, an introduction to the concept of systems analysis, linear programming, and simulation with emphasis on economic values useful for selection index.
