Hypor has adopted Code EFABAR: Their quote of balanced sustainable animal breeding, states:
The concept of sustainability in animal breeding has been worked out in the beginning of this decade by cooperating groups of breeders, scientists, welfare organization, ethicists, sociologists and economists. Not one aspect makes breeding sustainable, but the whole set – the balanced choices for the various markets. The set of sustainability subjects for which animal breeding can make a difference consists of: food safety, welfare and health, efficiency, environment, product quality and genetic diversity. They are all interlinked.
In animal breeding it is the balance of the various criteria for which animal breeding can make a difference that makes the breeding program and breeding result, not the individual trait.
