Genomic prediction and testing offers innovative approaches in breeding programs by enabling better disease detection and management. By accelerating genetic improvement in traits such as fertility, feed efficiency, animal welfare, and disease resistance in livestock, poultry, and aquaculture populations, farmers can make the best-informed decisionsfor more sustainable farming practices.
Genomic prediction and testing helps to determine objective measures of sustainability and animal welfare, to see how those can be incorporated into precision livestock systems, and then review how social sciences can inform and translate these scientific findings to promote consumer understanding of trade-offs and enable them to make informed purchasing decisions.
