Applications of Biotechnology in Animal Husbandry

Biotechnology in Animal Husbandry

Applications of Biotechnology in Animal Husbandry: Biotechnology is crucial in animal farming, helping improve production efficiency by adjusting genetic factors. It enhances health and well-being while controlling physiological systems.

  • Embryo transplantation is one such application that aims to increase the number of offspring from a single female animal
  • Cloning offers another biotechnological avenue for producing animals with desirable traits, creating genetically identical beings.
  • Animal biotechnology encompasses fundamental and applied research, including molecular modeling, genetics, gene manipulation, diagnostics and vaccine development, and tissue or digestion metabolism manipulation by growth promoters.
  • In animal husbandry specifically, biotechnology plays an important role in improving livestock health and productivity. 
  • For example, Genetic engineering empowers us to develop animals resistant to diseases or capable of producing higher yields of milk or meat.
  • Biotechnology can also utilize artificial insemination to enhance breeding programs and generate superior offspring.
