Question

Explain the importance of "selection" during inbreeding in cattle

Solution

Inbreeding is done to evolve a pureline and to express desirable superior genes in any animal. To carry out this, superior males and superior females are selected for mating which contain those desirable charcteristics. In case of cattle, a superior female is a cow or buffalo that produces more milk per lactation and a superior male is the bull which gives rise to superior progeny as compared to those of other males. 

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
