The vast expanse of pastures and grazing of the republic (187 million hectares) represents a huge potential for breeding a significant number of species and breeds of farm animals with a global gene pool.
The study of this discipline gives an idea of the role and significance of the global genetic potential for the qualitative transformation of domestic breeds of agricultural animals, the role of domestic and foreign scientists and specialists in the correct choice and application of the global gene pool in specific economic and regional animal breeding areas.
The textbook «Use of the global gene pool of animal» addresses issues related t the conservation of gene pool of the animal world, both regional and world scale, describes animal breeds bred in Kazakhstan and foreign countries that are of interest to breeders in raising, productive and adaptive qualities of animals.
