SMAll RuminanTs breeding for Efficiency and Resilience

Deliverables

Method for identifying environmental challenge events and assessment of their value for selection for resilience

Longitudinal data is so far not used to infer and report unobserved challenges We will describe a method that from repeated phenotypic data milk yield litter size will identify critical points challenging events such as unobserved infections in the lifespan of animals The method will be able to evaluate and identify superior animals for resilience to such events

A report for optimum contribution to manage diversity at critical regions and to assist mating design to maximise heterozygosity and expression of heterosis and evaluation of level inbreeding rate across genomic regions and their impact on performance

Genomic selection requires genomic management of diversity We will describe a method to first assess critical regions possibly carriers of deleterious recessive mutations and second maximize diversity in particular in those regions using optimal contributions and mate allocation

Schedule and program of the summer school, eLearning and training sessions and multi-actor round tables

List and preprograms of the training sessions and round tables to schedule until the end of the project

A report of an improved method to calculate genomic relationship across individuals of different purebred and crossbred populations

Joint multiple breed and crossbred genomic evaluations are not fully developed in small ruminants We will create a method to compute joint genomic relationships across individuals within a single breed across multiple breeds and across all possible crosses in a manner that genomic evaluations can generate the most accurate estimates of breeding values within and across populations profiting the information of all populations

Method for assessing potential bias due to design of cross-validation analysis

Crossvalidation studies in small ruminants may underestimate benefit accuracy and genetic progress of genomic selection due to short size of studies and the use of selected animals We will describe a crossvalidation method that generates meaningful estimates of accuracy and expected genetic progress from genomic selection

First batch of practice abstract for end-users

"The resulting innovative knowledge and easy accessible end-user material from this project will feed into the EIP-AGRI (The agricultural European Innovation Partnership) website for broad dissemination. The end-user material to be produced contains a substantial number of summaries for practitioners in the EIP common format (""practice abstracts""), including the characteristics of the project (e.g. contact details of partners, etc). A full package of practice abstracts will be produced by the project, containing all the outcomes/recommendations which are ready for practice. A ""practice abstract"" is a short summary of around 1000-1500 characters (word count – no spaces; see below) which describes the main information/recommendation/practice that can serve the end-users in their daily practice. Guidance and templates for these practice abstracts are available on the EIP-AGRI web site: http://ec.europa.eu/eip/agriculture/en/content/eip-agri-common-format. A total target number of 10 practice abstracts is foreseen for the project. Five ares expected to be delivered in the first batch. "

Submitted scientific publication on the genetic parameters between efficiency, resilience and reproduction related traits in sheep and goats

This deliverable will provide genetic correlations between efficiency and resilience related traits in order to identify synergy andor tradeoffs under genetic control Additional traits related to reproduction will also be considered To do so a set of existing data from partners SRUC INRAE INIA UNILEON will be used as well as data produced in WP1 and WP2
