Countries Phenotypic Information - ReDiverse Report

Red dairy breeds across Europe represent a unique source of genetic diversity and are partly organized in trans-national breeding programs but are also well adapted to local conditions providing regional identity of products for consumers.


Main purpose of the ReDiverse project was to develop and to set in place collaborative and integrated novel breeding and management concepts to achieve a resilient and competitive use of these resources and to strengthen best practices for small farm holders for improving product quality and to supply ecosystem services according to their specific circumstances.


One task of the project was to investigate the population structure and genetic connectedness as well as phenotipic recording schemes for the European Red Dairy Breeds (ERDB).
