Exploratory visit to Fundação Eugénio de Almeida (FEA )

Visita à FEA

Exploratory visit to FEA (Fundação Eugénio de Almeida), a breeder of the Merina Branca sheep breed. The purpose of this visit was to familiarize the project's core team with the ANCORME field team and explain the project's objectives. 

We also intended to learn more about the work flow of ANCORME and the sampling under field conditions, in order to optimize the methodologies to be adopted along the project. Thus, the electronic identification procedures and the sampling for paternity tests carried out by ANCORME were accompanied and different methods and materials for the sampling were tested in some animals.
