Development of an iterative method of breeding value prediction using a covariable model for cattle breeding in the German Democratic Republic



Development of an iterative method of breeding value prediction using a covariable model for cattle breeding in the German Democratic Republic



Archiv fur Tierzucht 29(6): 527-533



A BLUP model for dairy performance of sires that use covariables to determine the effect of herd-year-seasons is presented. The method used is iterative, and unbiased estimates can be obtained despite confounding of genetic and fixed effects.
