Genetic mapping of key domestic species

Dr Erold Naomab, Coordinating Director of the UNAM Southern Campus, facilitated a discussion on the need to improve genetic research on domestic breeds.Agra Professional Services hosted an interactive discussion this Friday to investigate the need for genetic mapping of the main domestic animal breeds as well as selected species of game with a considerable commercial value.
In a statement released shortly before the panel discussion took place, Agra Professional Services said “many Namibians sustain themselves and their families through the rearing of animals which have commercial value, or through general agricultural activities. Ensuring that the Namibians active in the agricultural sector benefit as much as possible from their hard work; genetic research on cattle, sheep and goats is being carried out.
