Ethology is the field of study that describes animal behavior and attempts to understand an animal's continuous interaction with its environment. Natural selection affected the ancestors of domesticated livestock and continues to operate on farmed species. In addition, artificial selection and its correlated unintended selective pressures influence genotypic and phenotypic variations in behavior. Studies of reproductive behavior that can aid in the identification of high-performing males and females will contribute to improved animal fertility and productivity.
