Abstract. Organisation is an important factor in animal breeding. The present study gives first approaches for the use of new institutional economic theory as a tool for investigation of organisational structures in animal breeding. First, the concept of breeding organisation is defined. On the basis of two examples – increase of the competitiveness of breeders’ associations and conservation of animal genetic resources – it is shown how organisation theory and appropriate investigation methods can be used to develop different possible solutions. The study shows that organisation not just happens but is an intrinsic component of the system »animal breeding«. This component combines interests of the private and public sector. Organisation research helps to discover optimum combination of these interests. A following study deals with breeding planning as an important challenge in animal breeding with regard to the development of breeding organisation.
