The breeds have been formulated at the Department of Primary Industries Tatura facility and are forecasted to be on supermarket shelves a decade from now.

Susanna Turpin, a research scientist, said that it's satisfying to see some breeds getting closer to the marketplace.

It's very fascinating. You look at the parents and you will see a whole new array of offspring from these parents, she said.

And when you get a combination of the two parents, it will produce an absolutely beautiful progeny with great appearance, great looks, it's really satisfying.
