Tim Byrne did his PhD using 1000minds to develop novel methods to ensure that in sheep breeding systems the most profitable animals, genetically, are selected to be the parents of the next generation.

This research involved converting what are, in essence, farmers’ opinions into economic terms so that the information can be used in animal breeding programmes, as implemented in the Irish and New Zealand sheep industries.
