ACMF Blog - why is selective breeding important and what does it mean?



To keep you informed please see a link to this month's 'Chook Chat', the blog for the Australian Chicken Meat Industry, and a post by Executive Director and blogger Dr Vivien Kite.

This month's blog takes a look at how traditional selective breeding works in the modern chicken meat industry, why we do it, and what the impacts are for the chickens, the industry and consumers.
