a high performance breeding animal
Explanation:
Not a very elegant turn of phrase, but that is what it means.

Meat production in pigs in the developed countries is characterised by relatively small breeding nuclei serving a multiplication level which in term provides sows and boars to the producer's level for the production of fattening pigs. On the breeding level various systems exist in the different countries. They range from internationally operating breeding companies to traditional herdbook associations. In almost all countries, there is strong competition between different companies on the pig sector. However, the majority of the successful systems are organized in a pyramidal structure which is characterized by a relatively small (100 - 400 sows) nucleus undergoing intense selection. In this setting the loss of genetic variability is predictable. The question is whether the loss of genetic variability in these high-input systems is relevant from a global perspective. This paper gives some different perspectives on genetic variability and tries to evaluate the role of high performance breeds in the developed countries as a future genetic resource.

The Akhal-Tekes have been selected and raised since ancient times according to a traditional quality system worked out by the Turkmen tribes based on centuries of experience in breeding and training high performance horses.

agree  Zeyern: since we don't know what kind of animal it is....
1 min
  -> Exactly, thank you1

agree  Olaf Reibedanz: Hi Rónat, you get more google hits for "high *quality* breeding animal"
16 mins
  -> Hi Olaf, I thought about that too. I decided to stay "literal" in the end.

agree  Terry Gilman: Heard tonight that since BSE hit the US last week, the govt is finding it difficult to trace the pedigree of the infected beef unfortunately
4 hrs
  -> Thanks, Terry. Yes, I heard the same thing.

agree  Richard Benham: It is said that there is no substitute for quality. Here, "quality" is no substitute for "performance". Google hits prove nothing: otherwise all terms would need to be translated be the same one term that happened to have the highest number.
13 hrs
  -> Thanks, Richard, my thoughts exactly.

agree  Elke Koehnke: I would stick to "high performance"
13 hrs
  -> Thanks, Elke

agree  Mario Marcolin: high performance.., :)
