Procedures based on best linear unbiased prediction (BLUP) have been widely used for genetic evaluation in dairy cattle and to some extent in beef cattle. In Canada, routine dairy and beef sire evaluation is by BLUP. Little attention has been given to the application of BLUP to genetic evaluation in pig populations, although Ronningen (1979) has initiated some discussion in this area.
