Abstract

Progress in sheep breeding practice and technology since the last World Congress is briefly reviewed. Gains have been made in breeding objective specification, genetic parameter availability, breeding value estimation, and in the design and execution of breeding programmes. Performance based recording schemes for breeding value estimation are now in place in most of the major sheep producing countries. The future for continued improvement seems assured
