* This Week's Feature Articles

We have 6 new features this week:

How Are Breeders Helping to Reduce GHG Emissions?
Past genetic improvements have significantly contributed to a reduction in the emission of greenhouse gases (GHG) per unit of animal product, and breeding remains an important tool in further reductions. These key points were made by Dr Huw Jones of Genesis Faraday at the most recent JSR Genetics Technical Conference, reports Jackie Linden for ThePoultrySite.
