Genetic improvement of beef cattle in temperate areas was discussed in five papers presented in this session : two dealt with crossbreeding, with one adressing British beef breeds and the other dairy breeds two papers considered selection, one made a balance of experimental results and the other focused on the organization of selection ; the fifth paper presented applications of the systems approach. A more general reflexion is offered to bring these five contributions in perspective.
