Name the methods employed in animal breeding. According to you which of the methods is best? Why?
Different methods of animal breeding are: inbreeding, out-breeding, out-crossing, cross-breeding and interspecific hybridisation.
Out of these methods, the best breeding method is of out-crossing because it increases the milk production and growth rate of beef cattle. Even a single outcross often helps to overcome the problem of inbreeding depression.
