Abstract: Technology transfer relies on an active engagement of researchers with industry to enable a two-way exchange that keeps researchers up to date with current industry issues and informs industry stake holders of the latest research relevant for their business. The AGBU pig genetics workshops have been conducted since 1991. This has been a unique opportunity for pig industries worldwide to stay up-to-date with current genetic research. The challenges faced by individual breeding operations are similar across species, including livestock and aquaculture, and cross-fostering of ideas as well as sharing discussions between industries are beneficial and desirable. As a result, 'Breeding Focus 2014' was developed to extend this opportunity for exchange between industry and research to livestock and aquaculture species. Genetic improvement of resilience is the topic for Breeding Focus 2014. It is our aim to address other topics of interest as an on-going series of Breeding Focus.
