Why different methods are used in plant and animal breeding.

The methods of animal breeding are the same as the methods of plant breeding, but in their application, breeders have to take into account a number of features characteristic of animals. Animals reproduce only sexually, and the number of individuals in the offspring is small. In this regard, when selecting a breeder, it is important to determine hereditary traits that may not directly appear in producers, for example, hereditary traits of males by milk fat or egg production. Therefore, the evaluation of animals by their pedigree and by the quality of their offspring plays a significant role. Often of great importance is the consideration of the exterior, i.e., the totality of the external characteristics of the animal.
