To celebrate 100 years of animal breeding at the University of Edinburgh, the Roslin Institute visited agricultural shows around Scotland. We discussed the importance of combining classic breeding techniques with modern genetic technologies to create the healthiest, happiest, most productive animals. We also learned about challenges and joys of the farming communities around the country.
