The improvement of animal health can be achieved through variations in local and regional conditions (e.g., altitude). In addition to biotic stress, abiotic stresses include changes in the temperature, illnesses, pests, and enhancing biotic stress. Effective farm animals must maintain fitness as one of their main responsibilities. As the demand for animal protein, resistance to the previous drug, and the drive to reduce antibiotic use in agriculture grow, this task will only become more difficult. The susceptibility to all disorders may differ genetically, but the variation has not yet been fully utilized. It is difficult and costly to measure this alteration in part because it is difficult and expensive. Therefore, genomics can contribute to the refinement of animal fitness. In this chapter, we will examine the concept of resistance, variation in susceptibility, and elasticity, as well as provide examples, present a few of the most recent developments in livestock and pigs, and briefly discuss the application of gene enhancement to addressing disorder resistance. Ensure clients can select from conventional meals, healthy choices (lean meats), dietary improvements, and food raised using preferred farming practices (natural, without antibiotics).
