Abstract Three main areas for further development of policies or regulatory options for animal genetic resources (AnGR) were identified in a study on exchange, use and conservation of AnGR (Hiemstra et al., 2006): i) How to halt the further erosion of genetic diversity and promote sustainable breeding and use. ii) Whether there is a need to further regulate the exchange of genetic material. iii) How to balance different systems of property and use rights. This paper provides an in-depth analysis regarding the third challenge i.e. of addressing the problems and options available for balancing the different property right systems for AnGR. The paper looks at the application of patent law on the field of animal breeding. Hereunder it analyses the need for and conditions for implementing excemptions and adaptations from general patent law for this field. Second, it analyses the conditions for a sui generis system in the field of animal breeding. Thrid, it starts to odevelop the concept of animal or livestock keepers' rights.
