On the 22nd March 2017, a workshop titled “Individual data recording in sheep and goats farming in Spain” was held in Granada at Estación Experimental del Zaidín (EEZ). The event saw the participation of all iSAGE Spanish partners (ASSAFE, INIA, IAMZ, OVIARAGON, ARDIEKIN, CABRA, AGRAMA, AESLA, CSIC).
The workshop, organized by David Yáñez-Ruiz and Daniel Martin-Collado (leaders of iSAGE tasks 4.1 and 4.2, respectively), had the purpose of discussing innovations to be tested in iSAGE WP4, especially those that have potential common interests across Spanish partners. These innovations are:
- Individual data recording using smart-phone type new tools;
- New insemination speculum for sheep and goats;
- Genomics in sheep and goats breeding programs.
