Here’s why having breeding goals matter
It’s plumb tough to hit something specific without aiming, as the old saying goes. It’s equally easy to hit something unintended by using the same strategy. Consider selective breeding, or non-selective breeding for that matter. It always represents a roll of the genetic dice. There’s no telling which genes the offspring will inherit from each parent. There’s no way of knowing how the environment will allow the inherited genes to express themselves, exactly.
