Better measurements, better selection

Abstract

The benefits of selection for better egg quality are large. New technologies in genetic selection open new possibilities in the development of methods to select hens for better egg quality. We will examine how the EU funded projects SABRE and RESCAPE have tried to rise to these opportunities. In the longer term an integrated approach to egg quality will yield important advances as well as interesting biological challenges.
