Spanish term or phrase: castigar falta de relaciones (armonía)
Esto es para un portal de internet. No puedo entender de qué se trata esta expresión. Está en un texto que habla de cómo registrar llamas para comenzar a criar. El contexto dice así:
Los animales inscriptos como BASE deberán luego declarar los servicios. Al nacer las crías luego del destete (8 meses aproximadamente), se solicita nuevamente al inspector para que las revise. En este caso el inspector deberá ser un poco más severo y empezar a ***castigar falta de relaciones (armonía)***, vellones gruesos, altos porcentajes de cerdas. Existen muchos casos en los cuales sin haberse presentado en los padres graves problemas genéticos (p.ej.: ojos zarcos en las crías que los padres no tenían) que sí aparecen en las crías. Cuando esto sucede se lo llama vicio oculto. En estos casos es obligación del inspector descartar la cría. El criador debería tomar nota de esta falla y encontrar si el vicio viene por parte del padre o de la madre. Los criadores realmente comprometidos con el mejoramiento genético no solo sacan del lote a la cría sino también al padre y la madre.

Aunque sea, me gustaría saber sus opiniones acerca de lo que significa esta frase. Gracias

  • The possibility of correcting conformation faults is dependent on having active growth and is attempted by influencing growth plate development and therefore should be attempted at an early age (first year of life). Correction of conformation defects...

Asker: Thank you for trying to help. Wandering further on the Net, I found the expression "harmony of parts" which is the most appropiate in this case. Thanks anyway!
