The article presents the history of the Laboratory of breeding and selection of animals of the Institute of Animal Biology NAAS, its personnel and scientific achievements. Currently there are seven scientists, including four Doctors of Sciences, two Candidates of Sciences and one junior researcher without a scientific degree work in the laboratory. The team has made radical changes not only in staff capacity but also in research. Scientists have developed and introduced into production methods of optimizing selection and formation of high-value genotypes in dairy cattle, improved methods of targeted breeding of young animals, increasing meat and dairy productivity of animals, assessment of breeding traits of cattle for selection by reproductive and fattening qualities, the efficiency of use in selection process of foreign gene pool. They developed theoretical and practical issues about the genesis of the Ukrainian Black-and-White dairy breed and its western intra-breed type, developed recommendations for the formation of highly productive dairy herds with long economic use, a system for monitoring the genetic variability of dairy breeds cattle, proposed the development of the selection of animals on a set of grounds, discovered the influence of various genetic and paratypic factors on the formation of milk productivity and duration of economic use of cows, etc.
