Biovidenskabelig
Projekttitel: Oprettelse af Upernaviarsuks fårehold i det danske fåreregistreringsprogram til fremme af fåreavls arbejdet i Grønland
Bevillingshaver: Jens Østergaard, Grønland
Bevilget beløb: kr. 51.750
Projektbeskrivelse: To make the breeding program for the Greenlandic sheep population more effective. I wish to set up a demonstration herd of sheep in the Danish developed breeding registrationprogram. The research station Upernaviarsuk do have the pedigree - and production information for its sheep herd since 1992. If I set up all these data in the Danish computerprogram in 2001, I will then be able to do some PR to get more farmers to register, so the benefits can start already next year. This breeding program can help the Greenlandic sheep farmers to oblige the consumers demand for a less fat containing lamb carcass.
