    acceptance issues faced by the animal biotechnology industry, and discusses the implications of the current climate on the future of animal biotechnology. Biotechnology is defined as technol-ogy based on biology. From this defini-tion it is obvious that livestock breeders have been practicing animal biotech-nology for many years. For example. Agricultural and Medical Biotechnology The application of many scientific disciplines to the study of living organisms and the use of this information for commercial/practical applications. Biotechnology involves genetic engineering, antibody and vaccine production, fermentation technology, plant regeneration from single cells, and many more.

Biotechnology is a very vast field and is not new. For thousands of years people are using biotechnology techniques to make, beer and bread. Biotechnology provides the benefit of producing live-stock on a small scale. One of the most important goals of biotech is to provide low cost vaccines.

The major problems related to the application of biotechnology in animal production as identified by 1- a growing distrust in and fear of biotechnology by the general public.

2- a scarcity of properly educated scientists and technicians and a lack of support for projects aimed at applying biotechnology to livestock production. 3- doubts about. Applications of Biotechnology in Animal Health ekar I Yr hnology dept.

Biotechnology is also being applied with some success in the livestock sector. Single-gene products such as the growth hormones of cattle and pigs can be produced in commercial quantities. Biotechnology has also been used to pro­duce experimental ‘transgenic’ animals, in which the genetic material was deliberately modified to produce Cited by: 1.

In general, biotechnology in livestock production can be categorised as the biological, chemical and physical techniques that influence animal health (survival), nutrition, breeding and reproduction. Biotechnology is that "branch of technology concerned with modern forms of industrial production utilizing living organisms, especially micro-organisms, and their biological processes," according to the Oxford English Dictionary.

The actual term applies to a wide variety of uses of such biological technology, including the development of new breeds of plants and animals, the creation of. improving livestock production by directly influencing animal health, nutrition, reproduction, breeding and genetics.

Therefore, the biotechnology of livestock production is growing faster than any other sectors; and by livestock is predicted to become the most important agricultural sector in terms of value-added commodity 3.
