It was felt the need of the day to compile the entire subject matter related to sustainable animal breeding and production in a single volume to meet the requirement as per syllabus of Post Graduate programme of animal breeding taught in State Agricultural Universities in India. The entire subject matter of animal breeding in this book has been covered in 3 parts comprising 27 chapters. The first part of 8 chapters has been devoted to the domestication of animals, animal husbandry development and education in India, breed improvement programmes for different species in India, and contribution of livestock. The second part comprises 11 chapters covering the conventional animal breeding techniques based on the principles of population genetics. The last third part comprising 8 chapters of the book deals with the essentials of sustainable animal breeding and production covering the documentation and conservation of AnGR, strategies for breeding of different species of livestock and poultry, biotechniques in animal breeding, reproduction, nutrition, management and health care.
Hope this book will be of immense use to the post graduate students, teachers and those appearing in different All India Competitive Examinations like NET, SRF, and ARS in Genetics and Animal Breeding conducted by ASRB (ICAR) as well as by UGC and UPSC.

Dr. Arun Kumar Tomar is Ph.D. (Animal Breeding) from CCS, HAU, Hisar. He did B.Sc. (Ag.) and M.Sc. (Ag.) in A.H. & Dairying from J.V.College, Baraut, Bagpat (U.P.). He was selected as Scientist in the descipline of Animal Genetics & Breeding of A.R.S. (ICAR) through All India Competitive Examination conducted by A.S.R.B. He was posted as Scientist (Animal Genetics & Breeding) at C.S.W.R.I. Avikanagar (Rajasthan), and subsequently promoted to the post of Senior Scientist and Principal Scientist (A.G.B) at Project Directorate on Cattle, Meerut (U.P.). He was selected as Head, Division of Animal Genetics & Breeding, Central Sheep & Wool Research Institute, Avikanagar, via Jaipur, Rajasthan where he is working at present. He has published some books & booklets and many research papers and has experience of editorial work in the capacity of Assistant Editor of Research Journals.
Professor Sukhvir Singh Tomar is Ph.D. (A.G.B.) from N.D.R.I., Karnal. He did B.Sc. (Ag.) and M.Sc. (Ag.) in A.H. & Dairying from J.V.College, Baraut, Bagpat (U.P.). He started his career as Lecturer, J.V. College, Baraut (Meerut) and subsequently at P.A.U, Hisar campus. Later on, he joined ARS of I.C.A.R. as Scientist (AGB) at C.S.W.R.I. and worked as Senior Scientist and Principal Scientist (A.G.B.) at N.D.R.I., Karnal from where he was retired having 40 years of research experience making significant contribution in the area of Animal Breeding Research and teaching experience to B.Sc., M.Sc. and Ph.D. Classes. He has published about 300 research articles and 3 text books. He has made notable contribution in research in the area of Animal Breeding, particularly pertaining to threshold characters, replacement rate, selective value, and other aspects of sire evaluation. He has long experience of about 28 years as Editor of Research Journal and guided a number of M.Sc. and Ph.D. students. He is still actively engaged in research and publication work.
The authors have published already two books. The first book “Animal Genetics and Breeding” was written as per syllabus of B.V.Sc. & A.H. of Indian Agricultural Universities. The second book “Genetics of Livestock Population” covered both qualitative and quantitative genetics in population as per syllabus prescribed for post-graduate classes in the discipline of Animal Breeding. Both these books covered both the theory as well as practical problems in very simple lucid and illustrative language.
