Abstract

Impacts of genetic drift (GD) were evaluated and the ability of breeders to achieve selection goals for small populations. The sensitivity analysis demonstrated the difficulty breeders with small populations or rare breeds will have in achieving selection goals. However, with high selection intensities progress toward selection goals can be made but at slower rates of genetic gain.
