Farm animals play a fundamental role in food production. All over the world, the livestock industry is developing very dynamically. In developing countries, the rapidly increasing demand for livestock products is driving development, while in developed countries, many production systems are improving their efficiency and environmental sustainability. People select animals with desirable traits to achieve their goals, and understanding how this selection creates genetic variation among populations and how genetic variation is linked to phenotypic variation in traits is essential to the effective development of animal production. Genetic technologies must become an important element in the breeding of farm animals. The aim of the forthcoming issue of the journal Agriculture is to discuss the most important topics related to various genomic markers: evaluation and maintenance of genetic diversity in farm animals; genetic architecture of breeding traits, including health and behavior; efficiency of genomic selection methods; study of candidate gene associations; identification of LoF mutations and genetic defects in farm animals; development and testing of new methods for evaluation of breeding value of animals. We cordially invite you to submit relevant articles to this Special Issue and hope that your valuable contributions will enrich the current level of knowledge.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Agriculture is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2600 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
