For maximising genetic gain by sire selection it is ossentlel that the Method of estimation of breeding value of sires should be unbiased and efficient* The method of Bast Linear Unbiased Prediction (BLUP) given by Hendsrson (1974, 1975) fulfills these requirements' While applying this Method it was found that duo to small number (less than 10) of daughters of several sires, the errore of approximation in computer analysis were large. Further the uae of computers is likely to be vary costly in many developing countries' It was, therefore, considered useful to compare a computationally simple procedure with the BLUP procedure.
