Use of suitable restrictions in the estimation and prediction of breeding values with regard to the practical requirements of animal breeding



Use of suitable restrictions in the estimation and prediction of breeding values with regard to the practical requirements of animal breeding



Archiv fur Tierzucht 30(3): 233-240



The calculation of BLUP breeding values when sires are grouped was investigated. It is shown that it is incorrect to set sire group effects to zero in BLUP models. Instead, the number of sires per group multiplied by the group effect, summed over all groups, should be equated to zero.
