Date: 17.12.2015 Author: Linn Fenna Groeneveld Category: Farm Animals

NordGen Farm Animals has compiled a list of references dealing with the phenotypic and genetic characterization of native Nordic farm animal breeds. The main species, cattle, sheep, goats, pigs, chicken, dog and horse, are included.

The aim of this document is to provide a list of references outlining the current extent of characterization, both phenotypic and genetic, of native Nordic farm animal breeds. Google scholar was used to search for any scientific publications, including student theses and reports, on Nordic breeds of the main farm animal species: cattle, sheep, goats, pigs, chicken, dog and horse. The document lists the breed names that were used as search keys and continues with a reference list divided by species. Please download the list here.
