A breed is a special variety of animals within a species. It is similar in most characters such as general appearance, size, configuration, and features with other members of the same species. Jersey and Brown Swiss are examples of foreign breeds of cattle. These two varieties of cattle have the ability to produce abundant quantities of milk. This milk is very nutritious with high protein content.​ Objectives of animal breeding

  • To increase the yield of animals.
  • To improve the desirable qualities of the animal produce.
  •  To produce disease-resistant varieties of animals
