EIP innovation projects

The promoted innovations should be new, valuable, unique, and (socially or sustainable) useful. At the same time innovation projects are (in accordance with EU EIP guidelines) both "ideas that are successfully put into practice'' and ''actions that are geared towards innovation ''.

Project description

Old and typical regional breeds of domestic animals (Red & White Dual Purpose Cattle, White Headed Mutton Sheep, German Improved White Goat, Angler Saddleback Pig, Angler Cattle and Schleswig Coldblood Horse) are threatened in their existence and extremely vulnerable. They are an important part of the biodiversity of our domestic breeds. The Operational Group "Animal Genetic Resources" is intended for the management of inbreeding and breeding progress of these breeds using modern genome-based populationmanagement methods.

In the first step, pedigreeanalysis will be performed and genome-based population parameters will be estimated. Subsequently, an analysis involving foreign blood percentage will be done for the Red & White Dual Purpose and Angler cattle. Genome analyses are planned for the White Headed Mutton sheep, Angler Saddleback Pig, Angler Cattle, Red & White Dual Purpose cattle and Schleswig Coldblood Horse. Sequence analysis will also be performed for the Schleswig Coldblood Horse and Red & White Dual Purpose Cattle. As a target, the Operational Group will develop a mating tool for farmers and hence contribute to the increasing of herd book stocks.
