ABSTRACT: Availability of animal genetic resources has an impact on the current and future quality of life and significant impact on food security. Ratification of the Convention on Biological Diversity committed by SR to protect biodiversity ensures sustainable use of its components (as well as animal genetic resources) and ensures the fair and equitable sharing of benefits from the utilization of genetic resources. The situation with animal genetic resources in Slovak Republic is not satisfactory, due to the fact that DNA samples and semen doses stored are only from the breeds Slovak Pinzgau cattle, Slovak Spotted cattle breeds and original Valachian sheep. From the last update statuses of animal breeds in the Slovak Republic, which took place at the end of 2011 it is obvious that 3 breeds of cattle and two breeds of pig are subjected to extinction.
