Animal Geneticists are animal scientists who conduct research in genetics, nutrition, reproduction, growth and development of domestic farm animals. They find techniques to enhance animal production efforts. They study the animal’s nutritional requirements and advice the producers about animal feed. They conduct research on animal selection and breeding to increase the quality of breed and animal produce. After studies they advise animal keepers on improved practices in feeding, keeping and improving the quality and quantity of animal products. They crossbreed animals to obtain a breed that has the desired traits using the principals of genetics.
One can pursue course in animal science, animal reproduction, or biology. Coursework for such degrees generally includes the study of subjects such as anatomy, physiology, reproduction, genetics, nutrition, and behaviour. Additional courses in marketing, communication, and technology are usually beneficial.

The remuneration that one gets as animal breeder depends on the type and quality of animal. Scientists employed with the national research institutes or private big organisations earn well. There is huge scope in teaching and educational institutes.
On a usual day the animal breeder would be involved in facilitating breeding for the chosen animal. On one day it could be assisting in breeding, on the other day it might be assisting in the birth of the young animal. The other days are usually spent in maintaining the health of the animals along with the veterinarian. Maintenance of health records and pedigree etc also takes some time of the day.
