Best Answer
Improved variety of animals within a species is called a breed. There is similarity seen in most of its characters such as general appearance, size, configuration, and features with other members of the same species. For example- In the foreign breeds of cattle such as Jersey and Brown Swiss, these two varieties of cattle have the ability to produce abundant quantities of milk which is nutritious with high protein content. Objectives of animal breeding are:

(i) To develop the new crop varieties superior to the existing ones in relation to their economic use.

 (ii) To increase the yield of economic produce.

(iii)The best and cheapest method is to grow disease-resistant varieties of animals.
